I am sometimes hesitant to do posts such as this because it toes the fine line between frugality and stinginess.
However, I am quite proud of my new little invention and because I have my own bathroom in my new apartment no one will ever see it. So:
Here it is!
The home I grew up in has one bathroom for seven people. Not even the cleanest clean freak could keep up with that. I now have an aversion to bathroom trash cans because they can get gross and grimy underneath, because your brothers may not put a new liner in and you have to pull sticky stuff out of the bottom when you empty it, and because pets can get pretty excited for girly-bathroom-trash-goodies.
I simply looped a handle of a grocery sack over each end of the toilet paper holder and snapped the toilet paper in place. Now I never have to clean a trash can again!
AND… most importantly, I don’t have to buy one!
