I just found a great new product at Home Depot.  It can be used for opening
and holding a plastic leaf bag, yard waste, laundry bag, storing pop and beer
with ice, icing kegs or more.  

It has a clever design.  It is spring loaded so that it pops open to provide
structure to hold a 30 gallon bag open and give it support as a liner.  It
can be used alone for yard waste.  It collapses flat and is held in place by
buttons so that you can hang it on a hook in your garage to store it.  Every
one I have showed it to loves it.

You can buy it at Home Depot SKU (inventory number) is 788-863.   It is
called the Kangaroo Gardening Container made by Fiskars  - model 9405 (phone
1-800-500-4849).  It costs around $14 - they are having a hard time keeping
then in stock.  

The advertising says:
Unique spring design holds itself open, frees your hands for gathering
Pops open to 22" diameter by 27" deep, stores compact to 3" stack
Heavy gauge vinyl construction is tear and mildew resistant
Fits standard 33 gallon garbage can liners
Hand dump handle for unloading

Apparently they make a bunch of other unique products.  Fiskars web site is

In around 1900 the head of the patent office thought they should close it
down because everything had already been thought of.
