Welcome to Month by Month:

This blog is my own little version of organization central. We touch on just about every aspect of home, family, and holiday organization here. It is my hope that by blogging my experiences, I can grow as an individual and perhaps inspire others to try new things and think about everyday life a little differently. So please join us in organizing for life every month of the year!

Simple Tips for Busy Lives: Trash Bags

Here's a handy little trash bag tip that saves me time and energy. It also makes it a lot easier to manage the trash in the bathroom trash cans.

When you are putting a new trash bag in....add four of them...one inside the other. Then when it's time to throw a full one away....you can just grab it and go....the new one is already in place. I like to recycle the Wal-mart plastic bags as my small trash can liners but it can work the same way with purchased bags.

Then once a month I refill the cans with fresh bags and we're good to go for another month. This is particularly helpful as then any family member can grab the full one and dispose of it without any need to replace it....makes it more likely they will jump in and help with this small chore!
