A Trashy Problem

The trashcan in our kitchen actually sits inside a large pullout drawer in the island.  It's a great setup because with one pull, you can access not only the trash, but also the recycle bin that's right behind...super convenient, that is, until Layla and Jenna learned to open the drawer.  I gave it a few days, hoping they would lose interest, but they didn't.  I would often find them running through the house toting around large pieces of trash...gross!  This time, they got into the recycle bin, which isn't as bad, but let's face it, it's still trash!

Needless to say, the pullout drawer is now equipped with a lock.  Imagine how many times a day you throw something away.  Now imagine that every time you do it, you have to jimmy your finger through the crack to unlatch the lock.  Looks like my super convenient trash drawer is not so convenient after all!  Well, I guess it's better than chasing my two tiny trash girls around the house all day and breaking their little hearts when I take their trash away!
