Keeping Bags from Falling into the Wastebasket

I was having trouble keeping the waste paper basket bag from falling inside the basket. Well, a bungy strap that fits a little snug works great. No more slipping.

You can also just tie one corner of the bag in a small knot and the bag will fit snuggly. (03/01/2007)

You can also use the clips from the office supply store. The size would depend on the thickness of the basket.

We use the large ones for our trash barrels.

I used to take a piece of 1/4" elastic and cut to the right length and tie the ends together or else sew them together and slip that over the edge of the bag. (08/12/2009)
