Organizational Tip #7

Place your extra roll of trash bags at the bottom of your clean trash can.  When you empty your trash can it makes it very simple to replace the trash bag.

You will have to orient everyone in the family that empties the trash can when you do this. I learned from experience.  When Dave and I got married and his family moved into the house I owned, his oldest son emptied the trash cans a few times – by dumping the whole thing upside down (bag and all) into the outside trash can.  He had no idea I stored an entire roll of clean trash bags at the bottom, so didn’t realize he was throwing them away.

I think it happened twice before he realized (when he could not find any trash bags to replace the ones in the can).

  1. What a great idea.
    I think we’d need to keep a separate roll outside the trash can too for those times when you just need a trash bag quickly but a roll in the clean can is an awesome idea and I’ll be suggesting it to hubby later – he’s the one who empties the trash and replaces the bag so it’ll have to be his choice (yes, I’m lucky to have an awesome hubby who does lots around the home).

    I always keep one bag in the bottom – in case there are none left in the box! It’s come in handy many times. Thanks for sharing! Sandi

  4. Sandy says:

    no kidding. thanks Sandi

    We store a few bags in the bottom of our trash cans! It is so convenient!
