I reuse the tops of plastic containers, such as yogurt and sour cream and such, to hold trash bags closed. I came up with this idea after looking at the little plastic things that hold bread bags closed and deciding I wanted one of those for the garbage bags. I take the lid and cut it half way into the center. At the center, I make a small pea sized hole, then come out very close to the last cut. Now I can put this on the trash bag. The dogs can't get into it, but I can get into it in a hurry if I have to without untying the bag itself or twisting off those twisty ties.
