    Thank you angelic. I really can't believe it's been 40 years.

    I know. Time really does fly. We celebrated our 32nd this past summer, and I don't know where the years went.

    Does anyone use the Forceflex garbage bags? I'm trying to decided if they're worth me buying them.

    I'm too cheap but I bet those would save the headache of garbage bags trying to tear apart before you get outside.

    I use them and really like them. I've NEVER had one break. Since I recycle everything I can, I don't go through gargage bags very quickly. The Forceflex bags are one of my few splurges.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I'm like Critical, we recycle more than we throw away and the Forceflex holds up very well so it's worth it since we only have 1-2 bags of trash per week. Now what I need is something that keeps the stink away. I cut all the fat off my chicken and throw it in the trash, and it gets super stinky when you don't take the trash out that often. I tried the odor blocker bags once but it doesn't really work very well if you don't close up the bag :/

    Oh and lettuce parts. Holy crud, the only thing that stinks worse than rotten meat and eggs is rotten lettuce. If I throw away the lettuce core and outside leaves and leave them in the trash a few days, it's like armageddon in my garbage can. I'd try a compost bin but I think my neighbors would kill me because of the lettuce stink.

    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I can offer help with stinky things that aren't quite ready to go out of the door for garbage day yet. What I've learned to do is to put the stinky in a plastic bag, like maybe a couple of old grocery bags or ziplock-type bags, and put it in the freezer until garbage day. Knot the bags up really good so that your fridge doesn't get invaded by smell. The biggest trick is not forgettring to throw it out when garbage day comes around; keep it toward the front of the freezer.
