I spent more on this garbage can than I did on my wedding dress
But, in our teensy tiny kitchen with only a few cupboards, an under sink garbage can wouldn't work (we already lost one cupboard to put in the dishwasher).
We were using the white plastic garbage can we used in our old house for garbage and a paper grocery bag for recycling - but it was U G L Y and the baby discovered how he could unpack the garbage.
(looks good - are we overdoing the stainless steel? We're done now - I promise)
So we figured it into our May budget and on May 1st I bit the bullet. It is actually pretty fantastic, though when I think about how much it cost I cringe.
I also purchased a compost bin - I know. I never composted before this week. Don't tell.
Isn't it cute?!
