Cool Idea: Ever-Open Laundry Bag

I spotted this neat trick on Martha Stewart and was once again impressed with all the clever things you can do with an embroidery hoop! Here, Martha has transformed a traditional, hanging, drawstring laundry bag into an ever-open one by tightening a large embroidery hoop at least 14" in diameter around it. This keeps the bag open so you don't have to wrangle with it, but still allows you to hang it, keeping it off of the floor and at eye level. This small change will make a tedious household task a bit more efficient. Personally, I use the Umbra Crunch Can as a hamper, which is inherently
always open, crunches for storage, and has handles to be hung or transported; but the key is to work with what you've got!
