Easy Way to Bag Leaves in Your Yard

By: Tricia Craven Worley

Bagging leaves isn’t easy if you don’t have someone to hold the bag open for you. To speed up the process, remove the top from a TV tray, and use it as a frame to secure the plastic trash bag.

The four members of the TV stand frame will hold the bag open so you can use both hands (or a hand and a rake) to scoop up leaves and place them in the bag. Watch this video to find out more.

    Instead of cutting a hole in the lid, I just use clothespins to hold the bag in place.

    I liked the tray table legs idea. I will try that next time.
