    Default Aldi's Garbage Bags

    Has anyone tried their garbage bags? Are they strong or are they cheap and weak? I have made the mistake of buying store brands before....
    however since Aldi's is basically brand name stuff sold under their Aldi's label?

    I usually buy Hefty bags at Walmart in bulk, but I have had pretty good success with Aldi's other products (oatmeal, maxipads, produce, lemon juice, vanilla, yogurt, ibuprofen).

    Thanks for anyone who has tried em.

    I do not like them but we have a huge garbage can. I buy Hefty Lawn&Leaf bags from Dollar General.

    I don't like them either. They tear WAY too easily.

    I buy the walmart brand of 13 gallon garbage bags and they work just as well as the name brands. I don't know about the larger ones.

    I get the really cheapo 8 gal bags for trash can liners and they work fine. My grocery bags almost always have holes in them, so I don't use them for trash.

    I use grocery bags for our garbage bags now, if I didn't I would buy Aldi brand. My mom uses them and hasn't had a problem with them.

    I like the big black bags. Does Aldi also carry white bags? I think those are the ones that tear easily. I've never had a problem with the black ones.

    I've not had a problem with the white 13 gallon bags. Granted, I prefer Hefty, but compared with other store brands, I haven't found Aldi's trash bags to be worse.

    I use the 13 gallon kitchen bags from Aldi's and haven't noticed any difference between them and other brands. I haven't tried the big black bags though!

    I like both the white and the black types. Never had a problem with either.

    I buy the Aldi black trash bags (and the white kitchen trash bags too). The black ones are heavy duty 2 ply 1.0 mil. I haven't had any problem with them, and I dump the dirty, wet kitty litter in them, so I would definitely not buy them if they tore! I haven't had any problems with the white bags either.
