Staying in the bathroom for one more post.
I believe strongly in learning from the professionals. I’m not saying I take classes from them but rather that I observe how they do things. I’ve learned a lot of my painting tricks (such as not using a tray when painting walls but dipping the roller straight into the paint can) from painters I’ve come across via previous work places or painters I’ve seen working in my current office building.
Here’s a thing I’ve learned from the ladies that clean at the office. Btw, I can’t believe I’m showing you our bathroom trash but it’s for educational purposes, people, so please forgive me.
What they do, our lovely helpers, is to keep a fresh roll of trash bags in the rolls at the bottom of the trash can.
That way they always have one on hand and can simply lift out the old one and hang a new one. And so now can I! Mind you I only do this in the bathroom and laundry room and then take those bags around the house and fill up from the other trash cans.
And for those off you who are wondering if I’m not recycling and dividing plastics, papers etc I must admit I don’t. In fact I don’t even compost organic material anymore except from the garden because I don’t have a warm composting bin or a good space for one. My plan is to start sorting more and composting more but I also know I need to keep it on a manageable level. Not having a car makes it difficult to take stuff to the recycling center and schlepping giant cardboard pieces flapping in the wind by bike isn't a favorite thing of mine. Believe me I've tried. My ambition is to better myself in the recycling area though. They don't make it very easy for us non-car users though.
