Keep a small trash can in every room in your home. This way you will stop accumulating all those small pieces of trash such as candy wraps or receipts. They keep piling up while you wait for the next trip to the kitchen.
Start using them, being sure to empty them often. This little trick will make a huge difference in your home.
Keep the function of the room in mind when you are buying a trash can. Think about the size, color, and shape that will be appropriate for each space.
I am a huge fan of trash cans that are covered and funky looking. This way they can blend in with the rest of furniture and be a part of the design instead of something that is meant to be hidden. Here are some fun options to choose from.
