Glad Bags Review

My kids are definitely the messiest people in our house. My little guy loves carrying his toys from one room and another and leaving the toys behind as soon as he gets distracted by something else that appears more fun. I have found toys in my closet, in the bathroom as well as on the stair case. My daughter, by the same token, enjoys playing with her toys. The problem with her is that she could make the biggest mess in less than 5 minutes, then when she is done with her toys, she simply walks off without ever putting them away unless I ask her to clean up.

In addition to the messes they make with their toys everyday, their closets could also get very messy. Both of my kids are very tall for their age. They outgrow their clothes rather quickly so I have to sort through their clothes every few months. With the Glad Bags I received to review, I decided to use them to help me sort my little guy's room: I needed to sort through his summer clothes in order to pass them on to my friend Sarah's little boy, I also needed to put his winter clothes out.
After a couple hours of sorting and folding his clothes, I had 1 1/2 bags full of clothes to give away. 
I like the Glad bags because they are big enough to hold a large amount of clothes. Plus, they are so well made that I don't have to worry about the bag bursting open during transportation. Although baby G's clothes are quite small, but a bag of them is very heavy. Luckily, with Glad, I could rest assure that the bag is strong enough to hold all that weight.

With Thanksgiving coming up in just a few days, this weekend I plan on cleaning out my kids toys. I will be using the Glad bags to store them until I could drop them off for donation. I will also be sorting out DD's closet so I could passed her clothes to my friend Jenn. Once all the cleaning is done, I will be able to start decorating our house in preparation for Christmas.

Next month, we plan on having some playdates and parties at our house. There are already more than a handful of things marked on the calendar. For example, we will have a playdate for DD's girl scout troop at our house. The kids will  be making Christmas ornaments, eating cookies and exchanging gifts. I will be having friends over for a cookie exchange and of course I am also looking forward to having my best friend Jessica's family over for a holiday meal with us. With all the playdates and parties we have planned, I know that there will be a lot of messes to clean up. Fortunately, I have plenty of Glad trash bags on hand so that I know that cleaning up will be a breeze.

When having a large number of people visiting at our house over  the holiday season, I make sure that I use eco-friendly disposable plates and cups. At the end of the night when the party is over, I don't have to worry about washing the dishes. I just walk around the house with a Glad trash bag in hand to toss the dirty plates and cups out. Have you ever had a trash bag ripped open before? It happened to me when I made the mistake of buying another brand of trash bags before. Cleaning up the mess it made was horrible so I never made that mistake again. When I am cleaning up after playdates and parties, I know I don't have to worry about Glad trash bags ripping open on me as I attempt to clean up. After all, the goal is to clean up the mess and not to make more messes, right?! 

From getting your house ready for the holiday season by cleaning out toys and clothes to cleaning up holiday parties messes, Glad is the brand for my family!

To buy Glad trash bags, please visit your local supermarket and drug stores.

I love their bags, use them all the time.

We used to buy the cheaper bags that don't even come with ties. You know, the ones where you tie the bag together? Hated them! They used to barely be stretched and would open from the smallest tear. The Glad bags are the only kind we use now, and we haven't had a problem since the change.
