There's Got to Be a Better Way: How To Line Trash Cans Neatly?

Q: I know it's a small detail, but I was wondering if there were any ways to neatly put trash can liners and plastic bags inside trash cans and still keep them in place? I always fold the top of the bag over the can, but it always looks so sloppy and the trash can are actually nice-looking. There has to be a better way, right? Help! -Sent by Ro

Editor: As you can see from the photo, Ro is referring to smaller, open, office/bathroom-style trash cans. I'd love to hear advice on how to line both those and lidded kitchen trash cans neatly, because that is one of my Personal Pet Peeves. My current solution? Leave the task to my partner, who does a much nicer job of it than I do.
