I know people wonder why I report an egg from my hen. She is amazing how she turns out an egg each day for about ten days to two weeks before she skips a day. Plus, I want and need this egg for my food!
Today, I actually feel a smidgen better. I have been coughing a little which I take as a good sign. Plus, ear quit hurting.
And, I am not so exhausted. Last night, I was able to sleep well and long for the first time in weeks. And, I did not need a nap all day which just happens when I only sleep for two hours. If I manage to power through and not take a nap, my body seems to have not gotten the restoring sleep it needs. Everything seems to be worse--earache, headache, sore throat, lungs--without enough sleep.
I don't litter, so the floor of my car can get junky and often more than just junky. However, it seems I may have found a pricey solution.
This was on the Internet, not Pinterest or a blog. It was instructions for a wastebasket for the car. I bought a container from Walmart that is in the housewares and meant for cereal. The top has a lid that is over half of the area of the top of the container.
The cereal container is opaque and made in USA, has ugly turquoise lid and cost a little over $7. There may be something better out there. Let me know.
The make it into a lined trash container--take off the lid and put a plastic bag from WM inside it with the top edge folded over to the outside. Put the lid back on. Now, you can lift the pouring lid to put trash into the wastebasket. When it is full or you want to dispose of the trash, just take off the whole lid and pull out the plastic bag of trash.
I am going to get some 3/4 inch elastic and make a tight loop to hold it top to bottom with a handle on top in order to grab it. I won't have to cut the elastic and can just use a needle and thread for this fix. The should help grasping it. It has not popped open yet, but it will be secure with the loop over the lid.
The price is a little steep for this container, but it is difficult to get things from the floor, so this works for me. Maybe Dollar General or Dollar Tree has a cheaper container, but there is no electric cart. A wastebasket made specially for the car is available, costs more and seems not to be as suitable as this one.
In my last car, there were knobs on which to hang a plastic WM bag. There is no place in this car on which to hang anything!
My only problem with this is it is hard for me to pick it up because it is slick. Plus, it hurts my right hand. That is why I am adding the elastic not called for in the internet suggestion.
And, Dominique gave me an egg today. I always thank her.
Do you have a "wastebasket" in your car? What kind? Do you litter like some of my friends do so the car will look nice inside?
