I'm DONE with newspaper bags
on January 30, 2010
For many, many years, I've been saving the plastic bag the newspaper comes in to use as a bag to pick up after my dogs. And for many, many years, I've thought "one of these days, I'm going to BUY bags."
This thought would usually come following a pickup-gone-bad. In other words, one of those mornings where I discovered that the newspaper bag actually had a few holes in it as a result of the newspaper sliding on the concrete driveway when it was delivered.
I finally decided I would check on Amazon to see what kind of dog waste bags were available and settled on these. I figured that 700 bags would last close to a year (two dogs... do the math), but I didn't want to buy a larger supply as I wasn't sure where I was going to store all those rolls of bags.
I shouldn't have worried. In fact, when my 700 bags arrived, I initially thought that they had screwed up the order, because I couldn't believe that there were THAT many bags in THAT small a box. But they really take up almost no room at all. (I HAVE POSTED PRODUCT PHOTOS SHOWING JUST HOW SMALL THESE BAG-ROLLS ARE.)
Despite the small size of the rolls, each individual bag is more than ample in size. In fact, I have two dogs --a 60-pound border collie, and a 100-pound lab, and neither of them can "produce" anything that can't be cleanly picked up. And let's be honest. That IS the most important attribute of a dog-waste-bag. A CLEAN pick up. Because a "dirty" pickup with wreck your whole morning!
