5 Reasons Not to Keep Your Kitchen Trash Can in a Cabinet

I firmly believe that some things are best left out of sight. When someone walks into my kitchen, I definitely don’t want the first thing they see to be a trash can. So stashing that trash bin in a cabinet seemed like a logical, aesthetically pleasing solution. Bonus: Keeping it behind closed doors meant I wouldn’t have to waste (get it?) precious square footage.

I’m sad to report, however, that keeping garbage in the cabinet below my sink has proven to be a bad idea. Here are five reasons I no longer keep my trash can in my cabinet:

You’re Probably Storing These 5 Things the Wrong Way in the Kitchen

Your kitchen is the workhorse of the home, and the items you store in it — serving pieces, utensils, and all that cookware — are among the toughest items in the whole place because they have to stand up to daily use. And even though these items are super-durable, if you store them incorrectly, you could potentially damage them (or, at the very least, waste space you could be using for something else). Here are five kitchen items you may be storing the wrong way.

Swedish Death Cleaning is the Most 2017 Trend of the 2017 Trends

The Internet loves a good decluttering trend: We’ve long extolled the value of KonMari -ing your stuff, for instance, keeping only the things that “Spark Joy” and discarding the rest. But this year the latest big thing in cleaning and organizing philosophies has taken a decidedly darker tone: Swedish Death Cleaning.

How NOT to Clean Right Before Your Guests Arrive

If you’re like me, then about half an hour before any house guests arrive you frantically run through the living and dining room, sweep any evidence of actually living in your home off of your surfaces, and jam all that crap into the nearest drawer/cabinet/closet to create the appearance of cleanliness.
