Guess you never thought you would hear the words "Garbage bags and why you should love them" strung together in a sentence before......... Well that was until you heard me say it!
Now... before you get all uppity about how bad garbage bags are for the environment and how I am a horrible person for suggesting you should love them.. but if you let me explain why I have a new fondness for garbage bags, you will understand.
Over the last 18 months I sometimes get overwhelmed when doing a bag change due to the smell (which I imagine is a pretty normal thing to experience) and partly why I don't enjoy the bag changes is because of the smell.
But the other day when my husband was doing the grocery shopping, he had a pretty thoughtful gesture and decided he would buy me some garbage bags to try for when I do a bag change.
Up until that point I had been using a plastic bag (and thoroughly check for holes) and proceed to do the bag change.
But he (my husband) didn't just stop to get any ordinary garbage bags... he got small purple lavender scented garbage bags.
You wouldn't think something so.... boring would be quite effective!
I love purple and lavender and I honestly don't notice the smell when I am doing a bag change.
So HUGE thank you to my hubby for being so thoughtful and thinking to get me to try scented purple garbage bags!
OH and if you were wondering what type they were, they are 'Multix Kitchen Tidies' and I purchased them from Woolworths for $2.66 which works out at 10c each!!
