|Value for Money|
We, like most people lately, are trying hard to keep our monthly bills as low as we can so we decided to try out these black rubbish sacks from the Tesco Value range. The sacks come on a roll and have the normal white label going round them with the Tesco Value logo on the front in red a blue, so they are easy enough to spot on the shelf in the store. It was a bit harder to find them on the Tesco site when doing a search as I put in rubbish bags (which is what I have always called them) and couldn't find them, but found them after searching for black sacks, they are called Refuse sacks, not rubbish.
We recycle a lot of our rubbish, we can put glass, plastics in one place and paper and card in another so it cuts down what rubbish we actually have left over to go in the black bag. We have a swing bin out side the back door which we lost the lid to ( it got broken) and we have a black sack in this all the time for rubbish when we are out in the garden. We do have some bits of garden rubbish which we put in it, not a lot, its just a bit of pruning once a month during the summer months. We find that this kind of rubbish is fine in these Value bags as long as we cut up the stems quite small, other wise they poke out of the sides of the bag and make a hole and then we lose all the rubbish out when you pick the bag up.
Indoors, we have another swing bin for more household kind of waste. We usually put a white bin liner in this and then when it is full we transfer the white bag into a black bag, placing the whole thing inside so both are tied up. This helps to stop the smells from kitchen rubbish and it makes it a bit stronger to manage.
The bags do have other uses though as well as for rubbish, they are good for storing things like clothes and fabrics in if you want to put them in the loft as once they are tied up they keep clean and don't get damp. We also use one draped over our electric grill which we use for a bbq when it is standing in the shed so that it keeps it a bit cleaner.
