The trash can. The blasted trash can. I have never had a place in this house for a trash can. My current situation with the trash bin is out in the open next to the end of the cabinet. How can I make it disappear? My current cabinets are short doors and I could only fit a tiny trash bin in the sink cabinet like my mom used to do. We put out too much trash for that tiny of a bin. The pantry is not an option either. That’s just not okay with me. Solution to the trash can dilemma: Adding a pullout trash can to my kitchen cabinets!
The only way this can be an achievable is to do a kitchen remodel on a budget. Let’s just fix this kitchen around where to put the trash!
No kidding! The cabinets I chose was completely based around this pullout trash can. I needed a cabinet with two tall doors that went all the way to the top without drawers above them. This 60 inch cabinet and 2 drawer bases worked perfectly! This is where my new pullout trash organizer will go.
This is a quick and inexpensive convenience if you don’t already have one.
