We are currently in the process of moving from one house in our beloved neighborhood to another. We are excited to be getting about 150 more square feet of living space, and an additional bedroom for our second daughter (who will be here in just a few weeks!). The house, overall, is just great.
Except for the kitchen. We are remodeling it so that we can make the most of the space. The TEENY TINY SPACE. Oh heavens it is a small kitchen! This wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t cook so much. Tim comes home for lunch every day, and we rarely eat out, so we seriously use it 3 meals a day, 7 days a week.
As we have been working on the remodeling plan, it has been of the essence that every single square foot of this room be used very well. We are working hard to maximize the space. Some elements of this include good design. Other elements include good organizational products.
Which is why we have turned to Rubbermaid to help us keep our recycling area functioning well in this new space. In our old kitchen we had the floor space to simply put a bin our for recycling to go in. It wasn’t pretty (in fact, I really hated how it made the room look so, well, TRASHY). But it worked. In this new kitchen, there is absolutely no room for that; we needed a different plan, and we weren’t interested in simply ceasing to recycle. No way! The blessing in disguise of our situation is that I realized our recycling was going to have to be hidden, somehow. It would be tricky to figure out, but it sure would look a lot better!
Rubbermaid has just introduced a new product called the Hidden Recycler, and it is absolutely perfect to meet our needs.
This will easily be tucked away under one of our cabinets, and is the size of 5 gallons. It is large enough to hold 1 gallon jugs! When it gets full, just pick it up by its convenient handle and take it out to your outdoor recycling bin. Easy! The bag itself has a leak-proof liner and is washable. The bag is also made of soft material, so if it needs to squish up a bit against other items in your cabinet, that’s no problem.
I think this is a spectacular product, especially for those of us with limited space in the kitchen, or who simply want our recycling to be kept out of sight! It retails for just $15.99. You can purchase it at Rubbermaid.com or at Meijer stores across the nation.
