I have been searching the net for recycle bins. I would prefer not to spend too much money, yet I want a set of recycle bins that will last a long time. Finding these two qualities in the same bin has been a difficult search.
I went to IKEA yesterday and found the perfect recycle bins for $9.99 each... small, black, with handles.
Now, I need to go to the recycling center and take photos of the various recyclables to adhere to the outside of each bin. I want to make sure that my whole family can easily place the items to be recycled in the correct bin without my assistance... yeah, right! I'll let you know how that goes.
Anyways, I bought a few other items to organize various others areas in the house. I will let you know how that goes when I get to that step.
