Out with the old~



My girlfriend was here two weeks ago for a visit...love her dearly but she is an absolute clean "freak". She knows it...she reads my blog and she knows who I am talking about. However, I do value her opinion and I think sometimes it takes someone "new" to come and see things that you have just gotten use to!

I have or should I say "HAD" a wonderful garbage can. It was wooden, off white, matched my kitchen table and I loved it! However, the days she was here, I noticed her son touched my garbage can and then she made him wash his hands. Now, this really should not freak me out b/c this poor guy washes his hands ALOT! However, I knew!

My lid opened scared her...the warped, black wood and who knows what....SCARED her to death!

After seeing this, I saw my garbage can in a whole new {light}! It was gross inside...no matter how much lysol or bleach was put on in it! It was time to go!

In midst of this new discovery...I also came to the full knowledge that stainless steel, foot garbage cans are VERY VERY expensive. Well, we have a new one....it's clean, sleak and the foot pedal is dreamy!

Sometimes, it is time to throw out the {old} and bring in the new!

Is there anything in your house you think you have just gotten "use" to???

I'm sure there are a few things that I overlook everyday. Maybe you should send your friend over here...

Yes...I had to update the mudroom {psoting about it soon-}.
I had room for two kids shoes, but had three kids...It was driving me insane, so I finally dealt with it this past weekend!

I noticed our garbage can is getting past it's prime (cracked and chipped off plastic lid, stained front and inside -- ew). I planned to get a stainless steel also, with my Costco rebate check. But, alas, I spent it on Christmas gifts and have yet to take the plunge. Also, I am scared I will have a problem keeping it clean and polished on the outside. Is yours showing streaks and drips? How are you cleaning it? Do you have to use SS cleaner?
