Why, oh why don’t cars come with a built in trash can? I don’t need anything fancy like the car from “Back to the Future 3” that runs on trash. I just want someplace to collect it all in a neat and tidy fashion, you know? My fancy SUV is loaded, I mean LOADED with all kinds of crazy things like air conditioned seats. Really. Keyless ignition, hands free parallel parking which I’m waaaay to scared to try….but a space to throw my trash? Nah. Just toss it all on the floor.
I saw this idea in the vast and never ending land of Pinterest and thought it was worth a shot to corral trash in my car. It’s a plastic cereal container (that I previously used to hold my home made laundry detergent when I went through that little phase). yah…I don’t miss that phase at all…..
I rolled up some extra plastic bags to keep in the bottom of the container. Now this thing rolls around on the floor , but all least it’s contained I guess. I was excited to show my mom this little contraption when she took a ride in my car. “How’s that working for you?” she asked. “uh…not that great, I guess” I had to admit. But at least I had a good reason to pull out my fancy little vinyl cutting machine to make a label, using the positive AND the negative cut out so that both sides are labeled.
What do you do about trash in the car? Any waste management tips for on the go?
