I Love You Garbage Can
on February 13, 2015
For the past month I've driven a lot, spent a lot of time in my car. I've fallen in love with this trash can. Yeah, right, a guy can fall in love with a trash can? I have. This is the most convenient well thought out car trash container I have ever seen.
Let me count the ways I love thee. You don't leak - I can throw anything inside you and you hold them. Your lid is easy to lift - of course I don't keep you closed up with the Velcro that would be rude. You are exactly the right size - not Rubenesque or anorexic - just exactly the right size. You stay where I put you - not fun when you fly around the inside of a car spilling trash everywhere. You are easy to remove and empty - and yet you always come back for more. You are sturdy - you stand up nice and tall and don't slouch, posture is so important.
At first I was hoping to put this on the floor in the front seat. Well the area for stuff in the front wasn't wide enough. Darn it, I thought this was going to be easy. So I looked in the back seat. My car happens to have a completely flat rear floor - there was this nice spot just behind the rear vents where I could put this box. It happened to be exactly the right height to not block those rear vents.
Well the bonus that black just sort of disappears on the rear floor. I thought I would hate the garbage box back there. Turns out, it is the best place in the world. When I'm driving I can reach back, grab one side edge of the top (not the front - that would mess with the Velcro), flip up the top part way, and drop my trash into the box. The lid then falls down firmly on the box, hiding all that nasty trash.
Now if my car had a hump in the back, that Velcro on the bottom would make it stick to the carpet and it would stand up on the hump. This also worked great when I put my winter mats in the car - for some reason this little box just likes to stay put.
I think this would work in a lot of cars - minivans, SUVs, or regular sedans. The thing is so well built and sturdy I can kick it around and it just keeps working.
Yeah there is a little bit of assembly required. You have to insert four pieces of heavy card stock to make the four sides. The zippers aren't perfect, but that's a one-time deal, you'll never touch them again.
Yes I'm in love with this.
