You clean your bathtub with a grapefruit and scrub your skillet with kosher salt. You are all about time-saving home hacks. But did you know you've been dealing with your trash bags all wrong? (Sorry.) Here's what to do.

Step 1: Take out a trash bag and open it up but don't put it in your trash can.

Step 2: Take a second trash bag, put it inside the first trash bag and open it up--so they're nestled inside each other. Continue to do this until ten bags are in there.

Step 3: Carefully place the entire trash bag amalgam inside your trash can, and fold the top over the can's lip.

The next time you fill a bag, simply lift it up out of the can and voilą--another one is right there waiting for you.
