Prevent leaking trash bags

When you finish reading the paper, ads, etc., place the paper in the bottom of the trash bag. The paper will go out with the garbage as to not attract roaches & other bugs, but will also soak up any liquid that drips to the bottom of the bag....when gravity takes effect on stinky leftovers, vegetable skins, etc.

Also, use newspaper as a placemat when cutting vegetables' skins; it will soak up extra liquid, as well as easily crumble together for throwing away. No washing and rinsing WHICH IS ALWAYS A GOOD THING!!!!

Both of these came from my sweet "Nanny".
