Don’t trash this freebie

I used to put a trash bag at my curb every week because it seemed like the thing to do. But then I realized that some weeks, I was setting out a bag that was only a quarter full. So now, unless there’s something in the trash that really stinks or is going to go very bad, I try to wait another week until there’s more in the bag before I toss it out. This way, I use fewer bags and therefore have to buy fewer bags.

I’m hoping to get at least one bag for free.

Ruffies is giving a free sample of its new Pure Flexx stretch trash bags. To request one, go to and click on “Free Sample Giveaway.” The site doesn’t say how many bags you’ll get, only that the offer is for a limited time while supplies last.
