Had they been 13 gal bags or ziplocks - well then I’d want them. I don’t have a yard. Landlord cemented the entire thing. 100% of it, so no yard work so no need.
Now had this been back when I lived with about a zillion pine trees in the yard, we raked up around 50-60 bags of pine needles each fall from our yard. Of course my kid then sold them at $3/bag on craigslist (having picked out the sticks and pine cones) and made a tidy profit (especially since I wasn’t paying her to rake, just paying for the bags - excellent racket - aka how to turn a chore into something she actually wanted to do - she even took orders when we ran out of pine needles in our yard). She was so excited about the money she raked, for free, several other yards too. Make around $360 that year. Took her about 5 min to rake and then fill a 55 gal bag. Had you sold these bags several years ago we’d be in for several.
@awk@melonscoop Yeah that is why they bought them. In fact her biggest customer was a professional landscaper. He’d put in orders and she’d go rake yards. First bag he bought he dumped them out to see if they really were leaf, stick ad pine cone free. We priced them several dollars below the equivalent amount of bailed pine needles. As these were the 7+" needles didn’t take as long to fill bags. Once we ran out of yards with only pine trees the mix of regular leaves meant no sales so she’d quit. She was making about $30-36/hour doing this since her expenses were zero (I bought the bags).
I use 3mil 42 gallon bags for construction cleanup and those often rip a little with debris in them. I usually fill them halfway max before it gets to 40+ lbs. I’m sure 1.5 mil would be handy for leaves or paper/light trash but not much else.
@martycaw That would equate to $28.90 for 100 bags. (not including tax) This meh deal is only $25. Menards are thinner, more expensive, and I have to put on pants to go buy them. That’s your idea of a deal?
@Kidsandliz thanks. I’ll have to check the dimensions of the ones I usually get. Sometimes the “bigger” ones are just longer versions of smaller ones. And sometimes, even if they’re thick enough, they tear freely once they puncture.
I get 30gal 1.1mil for 18¢ each from the grocery store so I’m not sure this is a good deal, especially since they are pretty thin for the size. I would probably end up only putting 30gal worth in them.
Newbie here, with a question. (Shut Up! I’m embarrassed enough having to post this.You try searching for ‘garbage’ on meh.) I finally decided I want these—oh oh oh I NEED these garbage bags and I found them over at Morningsave. Do I have to open a separate account over there, and since I have VMS, can I get free shipping?
I know this is probably answered in all the FAQS, but I thought I’d play the ‘pity me i have a small brain’ card, and maybe someone could give me an answer that doesn’t involve dividing by zero.
(obligatory), Love you Lots!
I know everyone has been wondering where the manbun philosphy came from…look no further than the toughbag 55 gallon trashbag. Watch out though, if you use this type of hair design, it may cause baldness from pulling your hair soo tight.
