Trash bags are a necessity in households, period. We use them for large trash, small trash and everything in between. The cost of trash bags does not necessarily speak of frugality. In fact, depending on the brand and style of trash bags you purchase, as well as how many you use in a week, you will probably pay somewhere around $15.00 to $20.00 a month for them. That might not seem like a lot, but when you add it up, at the end of the year that comes to around $180.00 to $240.00. Wouldn’t you rather save at least half or maybe more for something else?
