Recently (as in yesterday) I moved to a new house. This activity, in my humble opinion, is ranked right up there with digging a ditch. If someone asked me if I want to help them move or dig a ditch, it might be a toss-up. On the bright side it feels good, physically, to work hard.
We stuggled to pack in a timely fashion, struggled to get enough boxes in time, and struggled to move out in time. It was a lot of pressure for a young family with four kids and a pregnant wife.
Anyway, I purchased Glad Force Flex bags because I\’ve used them in the past and they are crazy tough. Most garbage bags require a small puncture and the entire thing blows out. Most bags, like most plastic, are difficult to start ripping but once they do rip, they are impossible to stop ripping. Force Flex bags are different.
Force Flex seem to be reinforced with some grid pattern built in to the plastic. When you put an object in with a sharp corner, it stretches, then it may rip, but the rip stays confined to the part of the grid that ripped. It won\’t spread.
Toward the end of our move we ran out of boxes. I packed my pots and pans in a Force Flex bag. Yes, I filled it up with heavy metal. One pan handle poked out of the bag but it didn\’t hurt a thing. I placed it in the trailer and took it home. Nice.
