Putting the "Lawn Fun" in "Lawn Funnel"

We were so happy to buy this weird piece of cardboard at Home Depot:

Which is funny because when I first saw it a week ago, I thought it was a silly waste of $3.30. It seemed like something that would be advertised on a loud, annoying infomercial in the middle of the night.

But that was all before we had the pleasure of trying to fill a lawn bag with leaves or grass or mulch. After filling up a few of the bags, which never keep their shape until they're about half full, we realized it might be the best three dollars we spend in this whole landscaping project (especially since we just bought THIRTY more bags).

Check it out. No magic lawn bag stander-upper:
