When raking leaves into plastic bags, it's always been a pain in the butt to hold the bag open and fill it with just two hands. For the past two years, I've been using a product that I want to turn you on to. It's a piece of plastic about 2.5 feet wide x about 4 feet long. It has two handholds cut into the top ( if you insert correctly). The idea is you roll this thing up and place it inside a 55 gallon leaf bag, and it holds the bag open as well as erect. Frees my hands to stuff the bag full of leaves. The hand holds in the top (if inserted correctly) facilitates the removal of the device. This is a real time saver, and I don't cuss nearly as much on the rare occasion that I have to bag leaves. My helper and me can make short work of a big stack of leaves using this thing. Costs around five bucks. Bill Craig!
