u/kuskaboose · 3 pointsr/minimalism

Got married in 2015 and we was in the same boat as you... Both of us are from large ethnic families who wanted to give physical gifts (because they're well intentioned and wanted to pay it forward - a lot of them were newly arrived in the US without a lot of money, and sometimes not a lot of family and married pretty young - so gifts they got for their marriage were actually very much needed). Both my partner and I already had functioning apartments (separately), then when we moved in while we were engaged, realized we had about 2 of everything and had to narrow that down. Thankfully, we are pretty minimal people - him by nature, me by intention. But especially after having to sort through both of our belonging to weed out duplicates, we really felt like we did not need anything else.

We ended up taking a two pronged appraoch: 1) Upgrading things we had, and used, but that were not all that nice to begin with and 2) Items that would help us achieve the goals that we had laid out for our relationship as a married couple.

A few things we asked for that have seen a lot of use:

  1. Vitamix - I thought this was going to be a huge waste of money, but my partner really wanted it and my aunt really wanted to give it to us (because she loves hers). This thing has gotten used daily (and sometimes multiple times a day). We have been low-carb-ish for the last two years and the Vitamix has been awesome for this kind of cooking. Can't say enough great things about it and I have no doubt this thing is going to last decades.

  2. Really great Japanese knives - my cousin is a chef recommended this pearing knife and this 8.5" knife. Not only are they super easy to handle (as opposed to German Wostoff knives - a commonly requested wedding gift, which IMHO are way too large to efficently or precisely manuver), but they are gorgeous knives that are nicely balanced and really feel great in your hand. We replaced an entire block of cheap-o knives with these two knives alone.

  3. Religious & ethnic items for holidays - There are a few holidays we celebrate where specific items are part of the tradition. For example, for Christmas, our families always have nativity sets, so we registered for that. For Easter, there are special cultural items that are used - and someone made us that. You can ask your ethnic families to get you these things (which were actually some of the most touching gifts because they were either made by hand or purchased overseas).

  4. Plates, silverware, glasses and servingware to host 40 people - This is NOT "minimalist" for pretty much anyone, but it made sense for us. We both have large families. The elders of the families have been strongly hinting at having us take over the "big holidays" that they have been hosting. Additionally, we live in a neighborhood that is the spot for 4th of July parties, and we host an annual blowout day-before-Thanksgiving party. When we were making our registry, we made a list of everyone who would be on the invite for these parties and were hitting the 35-40 person range. So we have 40 place settings - we keep 32 of them in a separate set of cabinets in the basement, and 5-6 times a year, bring them out so that everyone can eat together using real plates and silverware. It's not minimalist, but it's intentional in that we specifically have choosen to stay in the same city as our families so we can do these types of things.

    I guess my overall advice would be to make a list of goals you want to achieve for your life together, and then try to ask for items that either help you achieve those goals, or enhance those experiences.

    A few examples:

  • If a goal for your married life together is to be environmentally sustainable, think about registering for a compost bin, a fancy SimpleHuman garbage/recyling can or a Berkey Water Filter

  • If you want to pursue a healthy lifestyle together and cook homemade meals - you can upgrade your pots and pans (love my All Clad pots and my Le Creuset pan).

    Does anyone NEED this stuff? No, of course not. But when you're lucky enough to already have all your basic needs met in life, wedding registries provide are a nice opportunity to upgrade things that were aquired at an earlier time in your time in your life, not for their enduring quality, but rather their low cost/ ease of procurement. Good luck!

Loove cloth diapers. I've been really happy with them. Fewer leaks and blow outs than disposable, I love the way they smell like... clothes, not diapers. Plus $$ savings.

I was really intimidated buying stuff. I dabbled, a few of these, a few of those, and have settled on my favs which I pass along as recommendations for friends, but I still do just fine using ones I don't care for - they still work! So you can't go "wrong" per se.

Anyway, I posted this a couple weeks ago, but this is my "ideal stash" if I could go back in time and start from scratch. You can buy all these on amazon (easy registry) OR Nicki Diapers on black friday for some extra savings (which is what I did back in the day). I know the list is huge and overwhelming, sorry! But if you click through it I think you'll get an idea of quantities etc. that will get your baby's bum covered.

Newborn stash (for babies up to 11 or 12 pounds, my focus here is CHEAP since it's a limited time): Cotton prefolds, size small or Size small newborn prefolds, bamboo (I like the little bit of stretch) I say 30 of these, so if you forget laundry it's not the end of the world Cotton ones are good too.

Pack of snappis to secure the prefolds .

Blueberry newborn covers I prefer the snaps to velcro because the velcro attracted fuzz in the dryer and really weren't more difficult to secure. I vote for 4 covers minimum, never had a problem with that amount. You can reuse them each change until epic poop which gets on them from the prefold.

Post newbron. This is your big stash - I started using these diapers when my daughter was 3 months and still use them when she's almost 3. For these I prioritized ease of wash, use, and durability over being as cheap as possible.

BumGenius Freetime The ultimate diaper, washes awesome stays soft, effective, dries fast. I'd suggest 12 of these, this is the diaper you use all the time.

Bumgenius Pockets For your big pee-ing times (aka night) it can be nice to have a "pocket diaper" which you can stuff more in they're chunky but night time is not time to care about a slim bum I stuff with prefolds, the bamboo inserts are slimmer and work too, but I guess I am just more used to cotton prefolds because that's what i grab for. I think 2 pocket diapers is sufficient. My issue with these is that the "inserts" don't really reliably "agitate out" in the wash as they are supposed to, which is why I prefer the Freetime.


Baby washcloths I have 24, use them for wiping, easier than a chunky prefold for baby crevasses.

Garbage Bag I use this to line a trash can, throw all dirties in, take everything (bag and all) straight to the wash, toss/empty,wash it all (bag too) use bag 2 during laundry. I suggest 2 of these.

On the go bag For dirty y when you are out of the house (or dirtied clothes)

Cloth diaper friendly bum lotion If your kid's rash isn't clearing up with this, take out disposables, get the classic drug store butt paste etc. sooner rather than later and take care of it (bad rashes suck) Some kids just need that approach - you'll figure it out when the time comes.

u/Histrix · 1 pointr/grilling

Since you’re a beginner I suggest you focus more on just learning how to grill and stick with Kingsford blue to remove one of the variables.

Once you have developed some comfort and skill then it may be time to try some other fuel. My suggestion is to try whatever brands/types you have available in your area and find what works best for YOU.

The only downside to Kingsford blue bags is that it creates a lot of ash when compared to lump. Not really a big deal tho. I suggest you buy one of those small galvanized buckets with a lid to empty your ash into. They are fireproof. Every year you read about someoine that was sure the ash from their grill was extinguished so they dump it into their normal trash can and burn down their garage. Don’t be that person.


When it comes to consistency Kingsford wins hands down. When it comes to price Kingsford blue bags wins - especially if you load up on the upcoming sales.

Lump varies widely from brand to brand and even from bag to bag within a brand. Which lump is best is like arguing religion or politics - opinions and passions can run high.

In my Weber kettle and WSM I tend to use Kingsford Blue. I don’t really think the other more expensive Kingsford types are really worth the extra $$.

In my kamados and other grills I tend to use lump and I generally have a few brands on hand - Royal Oak, Kamado Joe, Rockwood.

Are these cloth diapers or disposable? What is the current capacity for reference?

Either way, I would go with a plastic step bin. Hard plastic is easy to periodically clean and disinfect, even if it isn't as pretty. Plus, you can usually attach a charcoal filter to the inside of the lid, especially with higher end models or separately if you buy an attachable sleeve that sticks to the inside of the lid. This can help mitigate any lingering smells. If you want something study, simplehuman makes plain ol' 13 gallon step cans, and it will last a lifetime because the parts are replaceable.

simplehuman 50 Liter / 13 Gallon Semi-Round Kitchen Step Trash Can, Black Plastic With Secure Slide Lock


Lower end, I recommend the sterilite and Rubbermaid cans in the same half-round shape. They are usually offered as a step can or a touch top (basically a step button you push at the lid), so you can determine what is best for him to use.

Rubbermaid Touch-Top Lid Trash Can for Home, Kitchen, and Bathroom Garbage, 13 Gallon, White


If disposable, you can get any size you are comfortable lifting the contents of (9 - 13 gallon, but I wouldn't go higher than that because wet things get heavy and repetitive motions are dangerous with adult care) and just use the right size plastic bag.

If you are talking cloth, there are pul liners which perfectly fit a sterilite 6 gallon step can, maybe other sizes too (edit: that can be washed with the diapers). However, they aren't always leak proof so ymmv, especially the larger you go. Let me know if you want recommendations for them. Best of luck!

u/23_alamance · 2 pointsr/organization

This is pretty spendy, I know, but this is our kitchen trash can and we really like it. We have to have it out so we picked one that looked nice. The step pedal is easy, but if your son couldn't do that, the lid lifts by hand too (our 18 month old can lift it). It also contains smells pretty well! simplehuman 45 Liter / 12 Gallon Stainless Steel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TXXPJBU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_X5cEDbXNVP5C9

u/saroka · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

In my studio I got lucky with storage but I know that I would get this bag holder as well as collapsible kitchen essentials. A slim trash can helps. If your bathroom has no storage, something like this can help. Hang your spices on the cabinet. Use this in the shower if you need more space. XD I use command hooks near my front door to hold my keys and daily jacket. :)

u/Kozinskey · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

First of all, I want to say I'm sorry you're dealing with this. This must be so frustrating and hard for you & your family. I do think there are times when a dog needs to be rehomed, and I wouldn't judge you for doing that if you & your family decide that's best for everyone. Biting people is unacceptable behavior, especially with little kids around.

That said, there are two things that come to mind as ideas for you. When our dogs started getting into the trash, we bought a locking trash can like this one for the kitchen, and kept the doors to other rooms with trash cans shut. Immediate improvement there.

Without seeing how you interact with your dog, it's hard to tell what's going on in terms of discipline, but I'm not sure "ignore her behavior & not scold" is a good solution. Have you brought in a dog trainer for an in-home consultation? Classes are one thing, but I wonder if having a trainer observe you guys might give you some more insight in what's going on.

Good luck and my sympathy to you guys =(

edit: also, looks like r/dogtraining exists and might be helpful to you too....

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Your wish list link is broken. Use this, http://amzn.com/w/1KJWLIWB3W464.

Well, congratulations on your new apartment! I would suggest being conscious of turning off lights. Electric bills can get pretty outrageous. Also, don't use your AC when it is under 90 degrees out, keep it at 78 when you're at home and 86 when you leave on hot days. Wash the dishes you after you use them! The can pile up quickly. At the very least rinse them off and stack them on the side of the sink to wash later. Don't let more than 10 accumulate. Keeping your house clean is simple. Put in little effort upfront rather than max effort later. Pick up that loose paper before 10 others follow suit. Put your clothes in the hamper, not on the bathroom floor. It's not hard or complicated. I promise.

You need the following
Trash can
Trash bags
Broom (I have this one and it holds up well.)
Mop #1
Mop #2
Bucket (can double as car was bucket.)

You'll also need towels, bathroom rugs, shower curtain, plates, etc that you will want to pick to match the colors of your home.

I hope you have fun! Invite friends to help you move and buy them pizza! Thanks for have this contest! cheeto fingers

u/xg220 · 3 pointsr/dogs

Easy solution to trash digging is to simply get a locking trashcan or put the trashcan in a place the dog cannot access.

From the way the dog acts it sounds like he isn't getting nearly enough exercise and or mental stimulation. Just because you have a big yard doesn't mean you don't have to exercise your dog. Especially if you just let him out and expect him to "play with himself". I have a fairly nice sized fully fenced yard and my GSD still gets 3 walks a day plus interactive playtime with me about once a day.

If your dog isn't interested in tug, fetch or frisbee, then the next step would be to run your dog. If you aren't in the best physical shape then what you can do is buy a cheap bike and purchase a Walky, run him for even just 20-30 minutes hard and I guarantee you his unruly behavior will decrease. I will note though, since he's a large breed dog I would wait at least until he's 12-15 months old to start doing this, as you can damage his joints by exercising him too hard before his joints have fused. Also get a kong, you can keep him occupied for at least 45min-1hr by putting peanut butter in it, freezing it, and then giving it to him.

I'd also recommend crate training him so that if you don't want him around guests you can crate him and you know he's safe. You can also crate him when nobody is home to guarantee your property and your dog's safety. Another thing you can do is buy a tie out and put it in the middle of the yard so he can't smash and paw on the door.

I'd definitely second getting a trainer to help you with his behavior in general though, it sounds like you aren't communicating with him in a way that clicks with him (remember, every individual will respond differently to different training methods), a seasoned trainer with lots of experience will probably be able to teach how to
communicate with him in a way that let's you communicate what you want him to do.

Lastly, you need to be patient with him, the Akita is a breed known for being very stubborn and hard to train, so you have to remember to manage your expectations. Just be consistent with what the trainer tells you to do and you will see results.

u/rainbowterfly is definitely gonna win cuz the Reverse Cowgirls are so much better at...looks at notes... flartball! They're gonna kick that ball into the net so hard and get all of the home runs!!

u/BH2 Yes you Cam? Pfft. More like yes you cam fail miserably!! The chance of you winning is rarer than the steak I'm gonna eat to celebrate Reverse Cowgirls win after I marinate it in your tears, NERD!!!

And after you lose, I'd like this trash can and you can just go ahead and climb inside of it.

(Jk please don't hate me.)

u/bossbrew · 7 pointsr/shorthairedhotties

Totally. I just purchased the same one for myself, the simplehuman Mini Round Step Trash Can. It ended up being smaller than I imagined but it looks great and doesn't take up a lot of space in my bathroom. I've had a larger trash can from simplehuman in my Kitchen and Bedroom for years and they are holding up perfectly. Not the cheapest trash cans you can buy but they are pleasing to look at.

u/aperturo · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

bought an auto-open trash can for the kitchen. best. thing. evar.

exactly the one (bought ours from Sam's): http://www.amazon.com/iTouchless-Stainless-Steel-Hands-Free-13-Gallon-Automatic/dp/B000EJVYTS

I would pay $300 or more now that I know how wonderful it is. wave your hand in front, the top opens up for you. it's MARVELOUS.

u/ghettoasswitch · 1428 pointsr/AskReddit

A bathroom trashcan with a trash bag in it and a lid. Guys never seem to throw anything away in the bathroom, but girls have to throw away used tampons and pads. You don't want to see that, and it can be embarrassing for girls to leave that visible in your trash. Get a lidded trash can!

Soap, toilet paper, and clean hand towels or paper towels in the bathroom. Even if you don't wash your hands, make it look like you do and have the supplies so others can!

Artwork. No, posters taped or tacked to the wall don't count. Bonus points if you made it and it's good.


A good smell. Get some mildly scented air freshener, candles, potpourri, scented oils, etc. Nothing too strong like incense though. Don't use them just to cover up bad smells though; then it just smells like a mix of the bad smell and the air freshener!

Bed made with clean sheets. Bonus points for headboard, bed frame, box springs.

A variety of beverages to offer guests, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Bonus points for offering a drink.

u/my_flipside · 3 pointsr/ABDL

I just use a regular trash can with a lid. I chose the 11-gallon (well, 10.6) because 13-gallon kitchen trash bags still fit in it just fine, but if a 13-gallon one is full of wet diapers, I have trouble carrying it, but I definitely wanted something larger than a 7-gallon bathroom trash can. Honestly, I don't notice much difference between the trash can and the 13-gallon one in our kitchen.

I also keep my bedroom window open, weather permitting, and spray Febreeze near the trash can if I notice an odor, even if I'm only noticing the odor when I open the trash can to dispose of a freshly removed diaper. In the warmer months, when odors seem to be exacerbated, I also put the wet diapers in super small trash bags and tie them closed. The bags aren't really large enough for a diaper I've been wearing 8 hours, but with the diaper rolled up, and the more open end facing inside the bag, they do well enough. I almost never notice an odor and I definitely was when I was just keeping them in a trash bag that was twisted close.

That said, I'm urinary incontinent and only using diapers for urinating in them. If you're using your diaper for more than that, what I'm doing may not be enough for you.

u/ScaryPearls · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

I do very much like mine: https://www.amazon.com/simplehuman-Slim-Plastic-Step-Trash/dp/B004L9L3KW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1518570288&sr=8-4&keywords=simplehuman+Slim+Plastic+Step+Trash+Can%2C+Grey+Plastic

It comes in multiple colors and looks pretty sharp. A really dedicated dog could chew through the plastic, but the mechanism itself is pretty strong.

u/dalek_999 · 1 pointr/DIY

Looks cool, but too much work for me. The simplest and cheapest solution I've found is this:

Large trash can like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S5OBMUA/. Note the step pedal to open, and the inner liner/pail with the handle.

Basic rake and pan: https://www.amazon.com/Petmate-Clean-Response-Aluminum-Small/dp/B00L68MUTE

Crystal cat litter: https://www.amazon.com/Fresh-Step-Crystals-Premium-Litter/dp/B001OQXEHK

Clean up the poop and dump into trash bag in can (same level of effort as the doggy septic tank), and after you're done, dump a scoop or two of the crystals on top. The whole point of them is that they dry out fecal matter, so the poop dries out and hardly smells. Once the bin gets reasonably full (I have a Corgi, and it usually takes weeks before I have to empty it; bigger dogs will be a different matter), tie the inner bag up, lug it over to the big trash bin using the inner can liner, and toss the bag.

I've been using crystal cat litter with my cats for years, and I love it. The dog poo can doesn't smell at all (and the smell isn't even that bad when it's open, because the crystals desiccate the poop). A bag of the crystals runs about $14, but last over several weeks, depending on how much scooping and poop there is.

u/dstam · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

I have a Simple Human with a locking lid and a foot pedal that would make a good CD bin. The Planet Wise liner we use would def fit it. We use it for our actual trash, I love it. We just have a generic white trash bin for our diapers, it works fine.

This is the one we have

u/shiplesp · 1 pointr/dogs

I use a galvanized steel can and the bag I get will fit inside. I like it because steel is pretty secure against pests or inquisitive pets :)

And I don't mind the industrial look of it.

You bet your bottom dollar those are black out curtains!! See the link above for the trashcan on Amazon. Fantastic condition! I would be happy to do the set of both for $35 if that’s acceptable to you (of course that includes the satin nickel curtain rods!)

u/-filly- · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

fear cuts deeper than words

Edit #1 - Replaced #1 #2, #9, #13, #15, edited some text, added bonuses

Okay, so a lot of my items are similar, or are kind of "flexing" the rules, but I will leave official rulings up to you. Here goes!

  1. Something Grey - Strip of magnesium - This actually just got gifted to me. This coal trash can is silver, which is basically grey :D

    2)Something reminiscent of rain - Zen Garden - Flexing the rules. It's only related because it's a garden. An umbrella!! I don't have one of these, and I have no idea why.

  2. Food related - Pineapple corer/slicer

  3. On wishlist not for me (this is for my fiancee) - Apple Cider k-cups

  4. A book you should read - Everyone should have the Joy of Cooking

    6)Item less than a dollar - MP3

  5. Something related to cats - This is related because of that scene in "Christmas Vacation" where the cat gets electrocuted

  6. [Beautiful but not useful - Lego adoption of Brandenburg Gate](

  7. Movie everyone should see once - Not on wishlist - Harlan County, USA. This documentary is nearly perfect in every sense of the word. This movie is so powerful, and so real, it's just unbelievable. One of my favorites. I always suggest it when someone asks "what documentary should I see?"

  8. Something useful when Zombies attack - Kinect Your Shape Fitness Evolved - You need to be able to Outwit, Outrun, and Outlast.

  9. Profound impact on life - Guitar. I really want to learn how to play, and my dad was going to teach me, but he passed before he was able to. It would mean a lot to share that passion with him even though he's already moved on

  10. Add-On Item - Cat6 cable!!!

  11. Most expensive item -It's actually the guitar, so I went with the 2nd most expensive which is a Logitech G19 keyboard Nope. It's actually this amp.

  12. Bigger than a bread box - Mizuno backpack

  13. Smaller than a golf ball - Not sure if a k-cup would count, but I threw it in there. If it doesn't count, I will find something else It doesn't. Here's some ship and anchor cufflinks I really want for my wedding :)

  14. Something that smells wonderful - Kind of cheating, but a different k-cup. Donut shop coffee is the BEST. Changed to a different beverage. I have a horrible addiction to this stuff, and it smells wonderful (to me)

  15. SFW Toy - Legos are a toy!! :D

  16. Helpful going back to school - I listed the Zen Garden again because it's helpful to have something peaceful when going back to school

  17. Something related to your current obsession - I am OBSESSED with Lorde. I have stated this many times over the last week.


    BONUS #1 - I looked through your reddit history (not very hard, but I did look), and came up empty, so I'll just post something later that might fit.

    BONUS #2 - These blankets are made in Oregon, and look SUPER cool. Not on my WL (I have more than enough blankets), but I really like them.

    I may attempt the bonuses tomorrow, we will see. This is definitely a placeholder until rulings on some items are made. Fix'd :D
u/unkilbeeg · 2 pointsr/sousvide

Well, I think this is the one I got. If it's not, it's very close. There may be better ones, but this one works pretty well.

The lid fits pretty tight, enough to smother any fire. Also enough that you have to hold the bottom when taking off the top. :-)

u/BagelTrollop · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I also have a SimpleHuman trash can. This one, specifically.

Though I've only really had it a month, I can assure you I did a great deal of research on trash cans before buying it, as the hinge of my last step can would snag the bag, tear it, and cause depression.

SimpleHuman is a great brand and they have awesome warranties.

u/PurelyNicole · 1 pointr/smarthome

If it helps, these are the ones I have. They work with the Glad kitchen bags well. Maybe you can steer her towards one of these which may be more useful?

Kitchen: This is the one we've had for 9 years. It's awesome because the liner drops in, and has this little hole in the back to tuck extra bag in. That was the feature my husband used to talk me into buying one. Because I thought it was stupid expensive, and would be annoying to buy special bags.

Laundry room: While you can see the liner, it pulls very tight so it doesn't look messy.

u/TerwaAnne · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

Here it is!

It's the same price at Bed Bath and Beyond, and you can use a coupon on it there. I know, it's a ridiculous price for a trashcan, but I love it. We also get compliments on it!

u/McFeely_Smackup · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Honestly, I think a step-on opening trash can would be your best solution. I wrestled with inside cabinet can solutions for years and was never happy.

I just recently got one of these cans and damn if it isn't the best trash can I've owned. It's a bit expensive, but I'm going to guess from your kitchen photos that it won't break the bank.

I tried a couple different "hands free" cans wher eyou wave your hand over a sensor to open...that was a mistake.

u/AlisaLolita · 1 pointr/dogs

Hey, I've got both a GP mix (91lbs) and a cat that like to get into the trash. We had to get one that is made well and has a lock on it. I love my trashcan. :)

I bought an automatic stainless steel odor-protect trash can and it is my favorite thing! It is huge, it keeps the smell in, it runs in batteries! And best of all NO TOUCHING.

u/Capolan · 1 pointr/shutupandtakemymoney

I have a much larger, better quality version of this and though it was expensive, it's awesome. NO SMELLS, no touching, it's great.

my problem when i was trying to find one of these is that the cans are always really small. I found this one, 21 gallons.

I did 1 "permanent" heavy duty bag that is taped into the can, and then I change the other bag (this keeps the can itself clean in case of breakage)


u/tokisushi · 2 pointsr/dogs

Best thing to do in these situations if she has access to items like the trash when you are not around is prevention - get a high quality, sturdy, LOCKING trash can (Example) or remove it from her access (put it in the garage, in a different room with a closed door, use gates, or put it in a cabinet). You can also make a habit of emptying the trash when you leave every day (if it is a problem of them getting into it when you leave for work - but it sounds like this was more of a 'we are home and she snuck off and got into the garbage' scenario).

Throwing away harmful trash directly in the curbside bin is a good idea and keep working on 'leave it' and redirection. Unfortunately, she now knows she CAN get into the trash if no one is looking and there are awesome things in there, so it may be more prudent just to remove access all together.

Use a combination of 'leave it' and preventing the behavior from being reinforcing (the trash is always empty or locked so she can never get any 'treats'/rewards from it) will should eventually cause the behavior to extinguish, but it only takes one time for her to figure out how to open the trash for it to be wildly reinforcing again.

TL;DR: You are right, remove the trashcan.

u/LOOK_AT_MY_POT · 5 pointsr/trees

You can build one yourself for MUCH cheaper, but this is the basic idea. Basically a screen in a frame and a collection chamber. Take the trim and jostle it around over the screen so all the trich heads fall off and go through the screen, while the plant matter stays in the top part.

Personally I think bubble hash or BHO is a better idea, or even QWISO, but if you want actual keif as opposed to hash, dry sifting is the way to go.

I have a similar one, same brand, as seen here and it's held up well to a very determined dog.

Two minor downsides: since the top of the liner bags have to pull down over the outside of the bin, they are practically begging (ha) to be pulled on and torn up. The lid fits snugly enough that the trash stays inside, but the liners get partially tugged out and mysterious shreds of white plastic appear all over the house.

The other downside is that since the bin I have is plastic vs stainless steel, that same determined dog may chew on the corners in a fruitless attempt to destroy the can in its entirety. The plastic is thick enough that I'm not worried about it being shredded or even warped, but it can be a little unsightly to have tooth marks all over the lid.

Mine has lasted 5 years, is still going strong, and I wish I got it 10 years ago. The trash can, that is. The dog is pushing 15 and still makes an effort to go dumpster diving on a regular basis.

We use a SimpleHuman trashcan that seems to work for us. It sits between our kitchen counter and our fridge, but I don't think it would be toppled. I know our littler dog won't get into it no matter how good it smells.

We have a Beagle and Sheltie. The Beagle is more interested in the trash than his brother Sheltie.

This (non affiliate link) is the general style that we have. I'm not sure that ours was this expensive when we got it a few years ago. It may not be the exact size. We use 13 gallon bags in it. Very convenient to just step on the pedal and the lid opens up. There's a plastic liner that you pull out and put the bag in.

I use a Umbra Grand Infused Humidor, made specifically for infused and flavored cigars.

Just kidding ; ) Keep them well away from your non infused IMO.

To expand on this point, a step trashcan in your bathroom. Discretely dispose of feminine supplies so they're not obvious. Also essential if you ever have small children or dogs visit. I'm rather fond of this one

u/svideo · 2 pointsr/battlestations

This. I bought it because it uses plastic grocery bags as trash bags, with hooks to grab the handles. Great idea for a trash can.

u/MaybeMe9 · 2 pointsr/dogs

Dogs are natural scavengers, and if you have an open-trash can sitting out, he is going to find opportunities to get into it. Smacking him for undesired behavior is not an effective method of training and will ultimately do more harm than good.

I keep my bathroom doors closed to keep the dogs out of the trash in there, and in the kitchen I use one of these. It is not expensive and works well.

u/goanalogbaybee · 1 pointr/weddingplanning

Same except we registered for this one that's half the price. My friend got one at her shower last year and recommended it.

u/AvailablePizza · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

Yes I'm surprised they even called it a dining room!

Unfortunately the only other place I can put the trashcan would be in the water-heater room (the white door on the left). I could get a thinner trashcan like this and put in in the corner by the entryway, that way it will take less space.

u/Myfeelingsarehurt · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I received one as a gift 3.5 years ago(a friend saw me lusting after this one at BB&B) I never would have spent that much on a trash can before, but if I ever need to replace it I won't hesitate to by this brand at this price again!

Also I put the trash bag on the recycle side and use it for trash as I produce more recycling than trash and I take the trash out more often this was so there is less smell.

> trash can with a lid

Make sure it's a LINED trash can. I like this 1.2 gallon simplehuman can.

u/Loimographia · 2 pointsr/dogs

Try a covered metal trash can like this; it's too heavy to knock over for most dogs, and even when they do, the trash stays closed inside. My dog used to constantly get into trash; this was my solution.

u/pnwbio · 2 pointsr/BackYardChickens

Yeah, raccoons are all nice and dandy when you live in town and it's cute when they eat cat food people leave out, but in areas where the scope of life doesn't require steel doors and clean-desk policies for porches, they're definitely a nuisance. I learned quickly to store all feed (even excess feed) in steel garbage cans with like this. It's a bit more expensive up front but they really do last forever. Heavy duty bungees covering the lid have seemed to provide enough protection over the years.

Beyond feed, I attached 1" poultry fencing on the bottom 24" of the chain link around my chicken run and sank it 6" into the ground below the fence line. It's worked pretty well since I installed it; no losses to predation.

Raccoons have they're place, but it's definitely not on a farm/ranch. It's an unfortunate fact of life, but stock animals (chickens, goats, cattle, sheep, etc.) are effectively prey to nature's predators and we are their keepers. I've never enjoyed culling a predator, but I've never regretted it either. I trap and relocate when I can but sometimes it's not possible. I feed my family and several others. Sometimes that requires unpleasant actions; t's a fact of life.

We bought this locking bin based on the reviews and customer photos of it being totally knocked over but still locked. We have a cheaper locking bin for our recycling and I can tell the locking mechanism is much tighter and more secure on this one (it takes 2 hands to open it).

u/Tangurena · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I found a trash can in the kitchen with a lid can help reduce odors a lot. I used one like this. Large enough that you don't have to take the trash out all the time. Small enough that the trash doesn't start stinking. And a lid to keep the odors down.

u/piccdk · 1 pointr/cats

Something like this would be perfect, but this one is too expensive for me: http://www.amazon.com/simplehuman-Semi-Round-Trash-Black-Plastic/dp/B003VWMS5E

We have two dogs that used to rip into the garbage all the time. This one has teeth marks on the lid and they haven't been able to get it open in going on two years.

Get a locking trash can like this one. Keeps my german shepherd from garbage surfing for drugs.

My dogs did the same thing. Then I bought this garbage can. It has a little latch on it to prevent them from opening it up.

u/I_am_Bob · 1 pointr/dogs

I use this trash can, keeps my 60lb black lab out of the trash. Just have to remember to lock it when you aren't home.


u/I_Made_Cookies · 3 pointsr/Dogtraining

Have you tried the ones that lock?
We got these and none of our dogs or fosters have gotten into them yet. One was knocked over once but they didn't get into it.

u/iwontrememberanyway · 2 pointsr/hitmanimals

is the food outside unprotected? A metal locking can is good for storing pet food:https://www.amazon.com/Behrens-6110-10-Gallon-Locking-Lid/dp/B000AS3OW8/ref=sr_1_2?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1480548130&sr=1-2&keywords=metal+trash+can

If it's stealing your food, I would make sure your doors and windows are closed at night.

u/bugdog · 1 pointr/aww

We got one with a locking lid. It's a Simple Human trash can that my mom got us because we'd rather complain than spend $50 on a trash can and she'd rather spend the money than listen to us complain.

u/-justkeepswimming- · 5 pointsr/Pets

My cat is the same way, except with plastic. Also had intussusception and had expensive surgery. This is how I deal with it.

(1) Any plastic bags are discarded outside in the garbage immediately. If I need to keep some, they are stored in a high, out of the way place.

(2) I got a kitchen trash can with a lockable lid.

(3) My litter box is not near a bathroom, so I use the litter genie for waste disposal.

(4) Anything my cat might chew on is stored in a closet. The closet is always kept shut.

I know it's a pain in the butt, but I'm not going through another USD2,000 surgery again. I keep him on catnip and I've bought him interactive toys that don't contain plastic he might eat.

Edit cuz spelling.

u/Aslan_reed · 4 pointsr/simpleliving

I have this one. It's not stainless steel, but it's durable as all hell and it keeps my fuzzy trash gremlins from eating garbage. I've gone through a lot of cheaper trash cans, but I anticipate having this one for many years.

u/f34rinc · 2 pointsr/BackYardChickens

I used .5 inch 19 gauge hardware cloth on my entire run. Original concern was protection from larger predators but had to make some adjustments once rats started eating my feed.

  • Seal gaps, cracks, holes in your wire. If you can put your thumb into the opening rat/mouse can squeeze into it.
  • Use strips of aluminum to prevent rats from going above/under doorways
  • Until you can get the rat problem under control remove the feeder at night or restrict access to it by placing it in a small metal container
  • It took 4 blocks of just one bite to get rid of the rats.

    Rats are crazy smart
