WFMW: Kleenex Trash




If you have little kids, you have little kids with colds. And if you have more than one with a cold, the Kleenex trash can get a little overwhelming, not mention all those trips to the kitchen trash can (which I have to get to by undoing the child-proof lock...a real pain when you have to do it 57 times a day).


My WFMW tip is to use the old Kleenex box for used Kleenexes. I keep it on the counter with the new Kleenexes, CLEARLY labeled "trash" on each side of the box. When the new box of Kleenexes gets used up, it becomes the trash box and the old trash gets thrown away.

Love this idea! I'm definitely going to use this one.

Oh what a great idea! Especially useful in the van as the kids can never seem to get the tissues into the bag we have for trash in the van.

I like this idea, particularly for my hubbie's office when he has a cold. he has a small tendency to not quite hit the trash can. The two side by side should work for him. :) Thanks

Love. It.

GREAT idea! I have used this one in the past for other small garbage types, but this is a super great one! Now, if my kids would just leave the kleenex in the same place twice...

Great idea in my classroom as 24 of us share a small can!
