UPDATE: I went to reorder these now that we’re using up the last roll, and the price has gone up significantly. From nine cents per bag to sixteen cents! They’re definitely taking advantage of the fact that stores don’t provide these anymore. Screw them. I will not reorder until the price comes down. I went ahead and ordered another kind, this time without handles but I’ll manage. I just can’t get my head around paying sixteen cents for a small trash bag.
While I really love these trash bags, I resent that we have to pay for something we used to get with our groceries. All the stores around here are no longer allowed to provide them, so we have to buy these to use for our used kitty litter and liners for our small wastecans. They serve the purpose, but they are are on rolls and you have to tear them (not bad but if you have arthritic hands it may be difficult).
If you’re used to grocery store handled plastic bags, these are slightly longer and stronger and hold more. That means, don’t fill them up with kitty litter or they can be prohibitively heavy! I fill them about halfway. For basic wastecan liners in the bathrooms and bedrooms, it feels like overkill, as they’re way stronger than we need for those purposes. That waste never gets heavy at all. It’s mostly used facial tissue and Q-tips. For those, we’re still using our grocery bag hoard we gathered while anticipating the cessation of stores providing them.
So, these are great, but unless you’re scooping litter, they’re a bit much. I bought them because they are handled and I carry out litter several times per week.
If you’re looking for lightweight liners for lightweight trash and want them much cheaper, and don’t care about handles, you can find more economical bags in bulk from industrial supply stores that carry liners for little office wastecans. Those are flimsier but may be just fine.
