You see, we moved things around in our kitchen. The spot where my garbage can used to be was replaced with a dishwasher. The only place left, underneath the sink.
Rubbermaid was having all these giveaways for their Hidden Recycler so I entered a bunch. I know, I needed a garbage can not a recycle bin but...
I entered some more giveaways.
I went out and bought a competitors product. Not because it was better but because it's what Canadian Tire had. Of course I have a Canadian Tire Mastercard (I heart Canadian Tire) so I have tons of "free money" on the card.
Fortunately, Ed is a procrastinator. Because, that night, I won one of these...
(Sound of Harps Playing)
If only that was my kitchen but it's not.
I got this photo from Rubbermaids website.
Unfortunately, Ed is a procrastinator. My kitchen has looked like this for months.
That is until today.
Tada, my new garbage can. Fits like a glove.
Frugality aside. The reasons why I came up with the idea to make it my garbage can are:
- It's machine washable. No more scrubbing. Like I did anyways.
- It's portable. If the bags I
get from neighboursbuy don't fit or fall down, I can just pick the whole thing up and take it to our big garbage can (now on the back porch) and don't need to drip garbagie wetness all over the floor. I think I just made up a new word.
- It was the perfect size. It wasn't too big or small so even though Ed had to cut out one half shelf (he would have had to no matter what we got), I can still use the space behind it.
- The price!
Now all I need to do is find some garbage bags that fit!
