Holiday Clean Up With Glad ForceFlex Bags

Glad BagsGlad ForceFlex Bags help me clean the mess this holiday season!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is getting to spend time with friends and family. That favorite thing can turn into quite the mess. I try to save myself from washing more dishes, which means lots of paper plates, plastic cups, and plastic utensils at the end of the day. That, in turn, means my trash bag better be up for the challenge of holding up during the holidays.

In the past, I went for the best value when it came to trash bags. I quickly learned you get what you pay for and switched over to the Glad ForceFlex 13 gallon size for my daily messes. However, between Thanksgiving and Christmas there is going to be much more trash being thrown away so I needed to try something a little bigger. In come the Glad ForceFlex 30 gallon bags.

Perfect for using to clean up all the paper/plastic dishes during the holidays AND after Christmas when there are boxes galore from toys, clothes, and gifts being opened.  These bags hold up to the test.  Check out the pile my kids stuffed into one of the Glad ForceFlex bags:

I loved how, even after the pile of trash and boxes, easily everything fit and we still had plenty of room to add quite a bit more trash before closing the bag up.  The Glad ForceFlex bags hold up to sharp box and utensil ends which means you have less of a chance of bag breakage.  There are very few things worse than a trash bag busting and spilling all over your floor on the way out to the trash can, not a fun me.

The bags are not only great for cleaning up massive messes, but they are great for after Christmas when you need to clean out the toys/clothes to make room for the new stuff.  We usually pile stuff and have a yard sale but after the sale I do not want to take everything back in, I prefer to donate it to the local thrift store.  The Glad ForceFlex bags work great to carry everything from toys to shoes and heavy coats to jeans to our local donation store.

So, whether you are cleaning up daily messes, after-holiday messes, or just gathering items to giveaway pick up some Glad ForceFlex trash bags. They will hold up to the challenge of holiday clean up…or they do for me at least.  Be sure to head over and like the Glad on facebook and take a break to play the ‘Missing in the Mess’ game too!

    Glad bags seriously save us on so many levels! Between bagging stuff up for donations, cleaning up yard supplies and stuff like that, we would be lost without them!

    I’ve used those and they are really amazing! You can pack a ton of junk in them and they don’t burst! I might have to break my own green rules and buy these for December.
