AS MUCH as we all enjoy the festive period there's usually a lot more rubbish to deal with than most of the time.
Whether it's packaging from presents or a post Christmas declutter – it can be hard to get on top of it all.
But one savvy mum has shared a clever little trick to help get that bit more into rubbish bags that are already on the full side.
She shared exactly what to do on TikTok and it turns out it's so easy to do as well.

Meanwhile, someone else mused: "Can you use to top of the bag?"

"I feel like this is super obvious but I think it lets out the air too quickly when you tie it off," she said.
