Helpful holder

Make fall cleanup easier! It’s difficult to keep a yard waste bag upright when you’re collecting leaves or other debris on a slope, especially on a breezy day — free up both hands when you use a prop to hold the bag.

Simply take the printed plastic out of a yard sign so just the metal frame remains. Then push its foot-long legs into the ground, so it’s secure, down slope from wherever you’re working. The frame will support the leaning bag, just like you see in the illustration at left. Plus, it’s easy to lift and carry both to another spot as you move around the yard.
