Works For Me Wednesday ~ Garbage

Trash Can Trouble
We were having trouble, no matter what kind of trash bags we used, keeping the top of the bag from falling into the trash. This made it more difficult to take out the trash and nasty to if you had to dig into the trash to retrieve the top of the bag.

Then my hubby solved the problem

He uses a bungee cord to hold it up now. 

Yes, our trash can used to have a lid.
We hate lids they just get broken and dirty.
We used the lid until it broke but since the bottom part is still good we have not replaced it.

What works in my house is taking out the trash only on collection day so we don't have to mess with it the other 6 days a week! We do have a lidded can and do have to clean the inside of the lid a few times a year, but it's a stainless steel can, which gets gross more slowly and has a more durable hinge than the plastic ones we used to have.

I appreciate your tip, though, because we do have trouble with the bag falling in sometimes!

What a simple but effective tip! Thanks for sharing it. I thought it was so great I featured it in my weekly link round up. You can see the page here: Cleaning, Laundry & Stain Removal Links For The Week
