Here is an easy tip to save you on your trash bag expense: use grocery store bags to line trash cans. This may not work if you use a massive trash can, but we use a small-sized one for which the grocery bags are a perfect fit. This not only helps us save some money, but reduces our environmental foot print and avoids the kitchen from stinking from a huge overflowing trash can.
If you’d rather recycle your grocery bags, there is another way to save on trash bags. Try not to throw anything away. Recycle every possible item, know your local recycling rules. Start a compost pile for leftover food products. Whenever possible, fill your bag to almost overflowing before changing it. Any other suggestions? Leave a comment to share your best practices.
