Custom made garbage can for you!

Do you find it frustrating that when you pull the garbage bag out of the can, it’s still half empty? In my case, the bag is too big for the can. I’ve been living with the garbage can/bag mismatch problem for a while. Back in school, I was too cheap to buy real garbag bags, so I use the grocery store bags which are too small for most cans. But it doesn’t stay on the can for very long, especially after you throw some garbage of substance into it, the bag would just fall in the can with the garbage.
Now, my wife buys high quality bags with nice integrated ties. So I like to get the most use out of them. I take it out and lean the half empty bag against the can on the outside, so I can put a big more garbage into it before I throw it out. But my wife doesn’t like a open ended bag slouching against the garbage can. I agree with her, I almost had a garbage avanlanch a couple of times when it didn’t lean right. So after throwing out many under-utilized garbag bags out, I finally decided to make my own garbage can out of wood.
I think it looks pretty good. And for those people like Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain, who paid $1,200 for a wastebasket and enjoys my handmade, custom designed and cherry wood waste can, you can contact me for a special discount through this blog. And for those people who can’t afford my high quality garbage can, they should really sell garbage cans with garbage bags together, so they will match. Or they should standardize the size, like they do with beds.
