I used to be a consumer who only purchased generic products. My husband would always tell me that cheaper isn’t always better. I never cared to listen because I thought I was being thrifty and that I would eventually become wealthy because of my miserly ways. I found out the hard way after having a entire bag of trash fall out of the bottom of the bag that it was time to reconsider my plan and buy some brand name trash bags. Being a avid coupon clipper and shopping at discount stores that accept coupons, I set out with a new mission. I was going to buy the sturdiest trash bag that was made.
Armed with my coupons I set out to the local Dollar General. I came across the Glad Force Flex bags. These bags were different than the usual cheap bags I had become accustomed to, but I never wanted a repeat of trash on the floor so I took a leap of faith and purchased them.
The Glad Force Flex is made from a very strectchy elastic type material. It has a diamond shape pattern that is very smooth. The Glad Force Flex was actually made to keep items from poking thru. The technology used was originally designed for the diaper and feminine hygeine industry to use for the same purposes. The nice thing about this bag is the polyethylene that is used to make the trash bags is a recyclable product. When there are scrap pieces of polyethylene, Glad uses these pieces to make more bags. Which is a great way to keep this plastic from the landfill and our enviroment a little greener.
I was doing my shopping at Wal-Mart and had a coupon for Hefty Ultra Flex trash bags and decided I would give them a try .I knew right away I would be pleased with my purchase as I had always knew that Hefty was a brand name I could trust. I simply loved the new stronger trash bags that I had started using. I could put bottles,cans and even pizza boxes in the trash bags and they did not rip or tear. The Ultra Flex trash bags are similar in design to the Glad Force Flex Bags. I did find the drawstring handles on the Hefty Bags to be more reliable and found the Hefty bags to be a better fit for my family’s lifestyle.
The best feature of both bags is they both easily remove from your trash can. The Glad bags have other options than the drawstring to tie your bag with where the Hefty bag is only manufactured with the drawstring. Both of the products are easily found in retail, grocery, and discount stores. Hefty and Glad also offer manufacturs coupons that can be found in the Sunday paper or you can check their website.
I also found that by using the coupons, I was saving more money than I was before by purchasing generic products. So the plan to wealth is back in effect.
