   1) change the bag 1 or 2 hours before bed so it does not leak at night
   2) add extra wings or tape to the bag before going out
   3) have a bath or shower before changing the bag to prevent pain and it makes it easier to take it off
   4) don't eat before changing the bag to stop it producing
   5) if you want to stay in bed on the weekend then empt the bag as it will be full
                                      good luck
