Hi Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was jam packed with a lot of relaxing. It was awesome, and definitely needed. When I wasn't relaxing, I was shopping, which could potentially be defined as relaxing since it was therapy, retail therapy that is! Anyway, I'm always looking for ways to make my busy life a little easier. With that being said, I've been wanting a second garbage can specifically for recyclables, for a while now. Our neighborhood started offering FREE recycling about a year ago and since then, I've made an honest effort to recycle as much as possible. The husband isn't as dedicated to recycling as I am so I figured if I could make recycling easier than it already is, it would be a win in our household.
We already have a stainless steel garbage can that we received as a wedding gift, and I wanted something that would match but all the choices were quite expensive. After much thought, I decided it would be worth the investment. Plus, I was able to score a 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath and Beyond. With coupon in hand, I set out to find a solution to this recycle apathy I have going on in my house. I opted for a smaller round stainless steel trash can that happens to fit perfectly, right next to our main trash can. Success! I can't believe how happy this new addition to our kitchen has made me!
Now that we have a legitimate place for the recyclables, (we were using old paper shopping bags that just sat next to our main trash can), the Husband is buying in 100%! It's almost as if he looks forward to putting that water bottle or plastic bag into the new recycle can. Double Success! Here's hoping the enthusiasm lasts! I will keep you posted...
What little things make you happy? Who knew it would only take a trash can to make this girl happy!
