Asda Smartprice Refuse Sacks
Advantages: Price, Number of bags in a pack.
Disadvantages: Rips a bit too easily, no handles.
Smartprice is the brand name given to Asdas lowest priced Asda products. It provides customers with items cheaper than competitive brands and thus providing value for money for those with a tight budget. This Item comes at a great price of £1.09 for a pack of 45, however in my opinion it is not the best value for money item that is available from the ASDA branded range of items.
When it comes to buying refuse bags, the aim is to buy some that are able to hold rubbish securely and come at a good price, Asda Smartprice refuse sacks well priced, and you get plenty (45 per pack) meaning they last for long time. However they are not as strong and durable as I would have liked.
The bags come in smart price Asda packaging, which is a simple card that has the Asda logo and green and white colour scheme. The card also instructs how to place the refuse bag in a bin and how to seal and tighten the bag. They come together in a rolled up compact cylinder design. The bags all come attached together, therefore each bag need to be unrolled and ripped from the attached bag, this is fairly straightforward thanks to the already cut along edges that are visible at the end of each bag.
They are made from Recycle material, which is great for the environment.
Look wise they come in the usual black colour and just by looking at one bag it easily visible that they won't hold much, and are not that roomy.
They are a tad on the thin side, and originally tended to rip too easily if I placed something that has a slight hard sharp corner (drink cans/ bones etc). They also on initially ripped apart when trying to pull the bag away from the bin. It also ripped when trying to seal the bag once all the contents were in the bag, which is mainly due to a major design flaw of not having tie handles attached at the top.
As a result I have found that I frequently had to reduce the amount I put into the bags to avoid it tearing apart, however due to the high number of bags that come in a single pack (45) I found these still useable and value for money.
Overall I do still use these bags today as I have learnt that the way to avoid rips and tears is to basically reduce the contents, reducing the contents of each bag is not a huge problem for me, as I need any way to save money, as long as the product does its job which in this case it just about does.
