I Manage the Mess with Glad!
This is the story of my life.
With a family of eight and a couple of daycare kids sharing a home, things get cluttered and messy really fast around here! We really need to stay on top of things in each room of the house or the mess just gets out of hand.
Our kitchen and living room gets cleaned every night after my daycare kids go home and when dinner is done, but you’d never know it at about 3pm when the kids come home from school! The kitchen gets ransacked and there are shoes, backpacks and homework everywhere! Of course then you have 2 teen girls sharing a room – need I say more? And don’t even get me started with our room. We have our California King bed, a crib, a toddler bed, our dresser… and that makes 4 of us in our room (we have a large master bedroom, thankfully!) Can you say… c.l.u.t.t.e.r.
To stay on top of these messes, we regularly have to ‘spring clean’. About once a month I make the girls go through their closet and fill up a garbage bag. I also regularly make them bag up clothes that do not fit. We take these bags to the Salvation Army. Same with our room. We need to continually bag up Gracie and Jack’s clothes – otherwise the clutter gets out of control.
This is why I am thankful for my Glad Black Bags! We are able to conquer these messes and cluttered rooms with these durable bags from Glad. We already regularly use the Tall Kitchen Force Flex (white, with drawstring) bags for our kitchen garbage. We have tried all other kinds, but these are the only ones that work with our large messes. I was excited when I found out I was being sent the Extra Strong Large Trash Bags (black, with drawstring) to try out. I LOVE the “ForceFlex” because they are tear resistant and my bags won’t break the way the others do.
Do you see it stretching but not ripping open? I LOVE these!
We have two things coming up that will require these Glad Bags: my daughter is having her birthday party next weekend… with way too many 14 year olds! And we will be moving soon… yes, again. We are planning on getting rid of as much as possible, especially in the garage, and are defiantly going to be using our Glad ForceFlex Extra Strong Large Trash Bags for these messes!
How do you keep control of your messes and clutter?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Glad. I received products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
