Smart Price Bin Bags -
I bought these the last time I was at Asda and perplexed by the sheer number of choices that there were on the shelves...
I have got bin bag shopping down to a fine art at my usual supermarket, however I had recently got a new bin that was a bigger size to my old one, and was horrified by the prices of some of the bin bags on the shelves... I have to admit I was finding the whole trip to the supermarket very stressful, as I couldn't find a thing in the unfamiliar store...
What I had ended up with was a pack of 45 bin bags that are currently on sale for £1.09. They are packaged with a strip of paper around them to keep them rolled up, and they are perforated between each sack in a straight line. I have had no difficulties separating these bags and probably only have three or four of them left now...
These bags are thin, however I tend to counteract this by either double lining the bin, or by placing one of those charity bags that comes through my front door on the inside... But for the cost I don't mind doing this, as they worked out cheaper than my usual bin bags... They do not say what size bin they are for - however my bin is either 50, or 55 litres and the fit in, with a nice 'overhang'... I have only ever had one bag split - and I feel this was due to the fact that my boyfriend had been pushing the rubbish down in an attempt to not have to change the bin... I have to admit that I had a wee chuckle when he did finally empty it...
The bin bags leave a nice amount of slack at the top with a bin the size of mine for tying knots, and my local council do recommend double bagging as a way of deterring infestations over the summer months now we have switched to two weekly collections... I realise that the double bagging does work towards being a little wasteful, however the amount of cash saved does make these worthwhile as a basic essential...
These are cheap bin bags, and I feel for the price it would be unfair to expect miracles, so for me they are a 4* product - but as a word of warning don't push the bin down to get more in - or you'll end up in a mess...
Summary: They do the job well
