Plastic Place Trash Bags Review / Giveaway

Thanks to Plastic Place for providing the garbage bags for this review/giveaway!

If you have a household, you'll undoubtedly have garbage.  And you have a need for a place to put it!  So garbage bags are almost definitely on your shopping list from time to time.

In the Frugal Follies household, I try to save money by purchasing garbage bags when they are on sale and when I have coupons.  That combination doesn't come around all that often.   I've also tried purchasing the house brand trash bags, but too often those bags are of low quality, are difficult to open, and often end up ripping - and what's the point of having trash bags that rip?

So here's another cost-saving option for you: purchasing trash bags online.

I recently had the chance to try out two types of garbage bags from Plastic Place:  Harmonyx Drawstring Tall Kitchen Trash Bags and 95 Gallon Black Garbage Bags for outdoor rolling trash cans.

Harmonyx Drawstring Bags come in sets of 25 in a convenient tube dispenser - so they don't take up much storage room.  When you're short on space, this is a great feature!   The bags are three-ply - no rips! - and are two-tone: white on the outside, black on the inside.  They contain Microban, which inhibits the growth of bacteria in your garbage can.  And they're environmentally-friendly, made from 50% recycled material.

I gave these a try in my kitchen trash can, and I thought they were great!  I had no worries about the weight of the garbage breaking the bag as my kids and I took it out on trash day.  They were quick and easy to put in the can as well.  Sometimes it's hard to separate the sides of a cheap trash bag open.  I know I've spent way too long trying to open those cheap bags!  But these were no problem at all.  The drawstrings made it easy to tie up the garbage and put it in the main trash can outside.

And speaking of the outside trash can: Mine lives in my garage, except of course when it's at the curb waiting to be picked up.  Now, my garage gets really, really hot.  I live in South Florida, where the temperature rarely cools off, even at night.  If garbage has been sitting in the can for a few days before it goes outside, the garbage can gets really smelly - and so does the whole garage!  Then, when the garbage is collected, sometimes there are still garbage items at the bottom - and that stuff will sit for another three or four days!

95 Gallon Black Garbage Bags from Plastic Place can help make your outside garage a little less smelly!  These bags will fit your extra-large outdoor rollaway garbage can.  You can put broken glass or other sharp-edged items in your can, and the 2.0-mm thick bag won't puncture.

I gave these bags a try as well.  I have to admit that the extra step of lining the outside garbage can was a bit of a pain.  However, it paid off when the garbage was collected, and there were no extra pieces of trash at the bottom of the can that the garbage collectors had neglected to get.  Yay!  And the can definitely smelled much less than it did without trash can liners.

Overall, I was really happy with the Harmonyx kitchen bags and the trash can liners.  And these bags may be a lot less expensive than the thin, ripping house brand bags you'll find at the store!

Would you like to try these trash bags?  Stop by Plastic Place for these bags and lots of other sizes and styles as well!  Plus, there's free shipping on orders of $50 or more, and only a flat $5 charge for orders below $50.

Or would you like to try them for free?

I would love to try the 42 gallon contractors bags.... we usually get Hefty but I have been really dissatisfied with the quality of their bags lately.

I would like to try the 12 - 16 gallon trash bags. It's really hard to find good trash bags that are sturdy and won't tear when you take them out of the trash can. These look like they would be good.

I would like the deckside bags, they are the perfect fit for our trash cans.

I would use the Harmonyx Drawstring Tall Kitchen Trash Bags the most since I only use the really big bags occasionally.

I would love to try the Black High Density 30 gallon bags. I hate bags that always rip when you take them out of the garbage can.

I would like to try the 65 gallon black trash bags.
In the fall we have loads of leaves to rake and bag. And these bags as well as the 95 gal. bags would be perfect for that.

I like the Blue Recycling Bags, 33x39, 100/case, i would never mix these up with the regualr garbage.

The 42-gallon contractor bags would be a big help for my brother who recently purchased a new home.

Lisa August 29, 2013 at 12:27 AM  

I like the black 12-16 OR LARGER GALLON TRASH BAGS. I always have a problem with the bags being too small with certain brands.

id love to try the 42 gallon Contractor Bags - Black we have been hauling stuff out of the basement and these look like they could hold all of our junk. They sound very durable and would surely do the job.

I like white tall kitchen bags. I use as few as possible, I'm basically a treehugger.
