WINNER Anna (ana4778@21151820 - bin full of rubbish isolated on white background

The other day we talked about an option to give you more room in your fridge. On that same line of thought, don’t forget that you are going to need to be prepared for all the extra trash that piles up during the holidays too.

Paper products and beverage containers can pile up fast when you have a large group in your home. Consider adding additional receptacles for folks to discard their waste. Make sure they are easy to spot so people actually use them instead of creating piles in your kitchen work area!

Put someone in charge of checking the trash bins so they can be monitored and changed as needed. At my house the boys have trash bin duty. I have learned that leaving unused bags in the bottom of the trash bin will increase the likelihood that they actually put a new bag in once they pull the full bag. If the bag is sitting there waiting for them, they will replace it.  But if they have to go hunt one down, the trash bin may end up getting filled before the new bag arrives!

You might even consider labeling the trash bins so folks know where to place the various items. After all, ’tis the season for lots of food to be shoved down drains. Giving folks a place to put their trash will help you keep your house clean and it may even save you a call to your local plumber!
