securing trash bags
As an afterthought to another trash bag posting, I wanted to share a couple of methods I use to secure a trash bag in the can or wastebasket.
For large trash cans, I use a binder clip. That's the black thingie with the two wire squeezers on it. You can bend the wires down after fastening and the lid still fits. Just remember to take it off when you tie up the bag and put the garbage out!
For kitchen trash and wastebaskets I use the little plastic clippie from bread wrappers. Pull the bag over the sides, pull one end tight, twist, and clip.
I find both of these fast, easy and inexpensive ways to secure those darn bags.
