Use Plastic Hooks for Grocery Bags

I like to recycle plastic grocery bags in my kitchen garbage container. I bought a package of self-adhesive plastic cup hooks at the dollar store and put two on the inside of the trash can on the right and two more on the left. The handles of the plastic bags hang on the hooks, holding them up and open. When the bag is full, pull it off the hooks and tie it shut with the two handles. I have not bought garbage bags in 25 years.

That is smart! I get frustrated sometimes when the bag won't quite fit my big trash can and I have to stretch it at the top or it tears. I will try your idea!

That's a good idea and the hooks probably do not get in the way if you happen to need to use a tall kitchen trash bag.
