Stay-put trash bag

Don’t you hate it when the plastic bag in your garbage can slips down inside as it fills up? Solve the problem easily with drawstring garbage bags and an adhesive-backed hook. Stick the hook on the back of the trash can a few inches below the top. As the bag gets heavier, the drawstring gets tauter and pulls the top of the plastic bag tighter against the bin so it doesn’t slip inside.
