Receptacles of Trash

August 16, 2013 § Leave a comment

One culprit of a messy space is not having a wastebasket in it.


Papers no longer needed are left in a pile eating up space… Torn, left-over packaging of items are nestled with everything else… Of course, there is a trash bin somewhere, it’s just too far from where you are at. (-:

Tip: Place an open wastebasket in every room in your home and see a lot of the mess disappear. No lid litter bins are better for quick dumping (no lifting of lid necessary nor stepping on a pedal to open). Place this bin nearby where you usually park in a space. Choose a good sized one to accommodate more trash.

Lidded bins are best for kitchen use.

Love this sensor trash bin from simplehuman. The lid automatically lifts with just a wave of your hand.

Homestyle Mesh Wastebaskets available at ACE Hardware. These can also be found at SM and Landmark Dept. Stores in silver and black shades.

I like the triangle one, you can cozy it up in a corner which I like to think makes it easier to score when you try to shoot in trash. Try spray painting these metal wastebaskets from Ace if you prefer more fun colors.
