This is a sight that makes me HAPPY!!!

This garbage can hanging out in the middle of the room does NOT!
(See the bag of recycling on the floor next to the garbage can?)

Here is what was in the cabinet before the trash cans went in... Cookie cutters, clay, and an empty space where I used to have baskets for the kids school work, before I moved it into a drawer. Only problem... the shelf was in the way, and needed to be CUT out!

I got my husband this tool for Christmas, specifically for the job of taking out the shelf. Good thinking eigh? It's called an Oscilating Multi Function Power Tool, and you can get it at Harbor Freight for around $20 on sale, and $40 regularly. It was so LOUD! But, did the job very well.

We noticed a pipe after the fact, so we had to put a large single can on the right side, and two smaller cans on the left.

We got the kits at Home Depot. The quality is fair. The brackets snapped off during the last step.
We may replace them in the future if Costco gets more in stock.

I made sign for them, so no one forgets which side is which.

This sight makes me HAPPY also.

Thanks to the best husband in the whole world for helping clean up my kitchen! Love you honey!

Have a Happy and Clean Day!

Look at you, smarty! I have so many empty cabinets, why do I have my garbage out where everyone can see it?

I love having my trash cans in the cabinets too! Nothing annoys me more than having them out in the open!

Oh I had these in my last house! I loved them. If you can spare the cabinet space it's so worth it. I'd love to have you link this to my VIP party today!

Love this too. I have a trash compactor that is my bff ;), but I often wish I had a dedicayed recycle bin instead of having to walk out to the garage every time!

I so need to do this with my garbage can! I hate that it is on the end of my counter.
