The Friday Five: Garbage Bins

Although the name may vary – wastepaper basket, garbage can, trash bin – the function of this object remains the same. There are plenty of affordable (and not-so-affordable) options out there for your home office, kitchen, bathroom and craft room. Here’s a little peak into the world of garbage bins.

      Believe it or not – it was hard to narrow this list down to 5. There are some other great bins on the market. I may just have to do a follow-up post!

    I like the minimalist cylinder bin- very slick. I would buy it but it’s probably priced as ‘art,’ not a garbage bin.

      I’ve got a few of the IKEA ones kicking around. They do the trick and look decent. I like the Vipp because it looks like it can handle just about anything that is thrown at it.
