Cascade Container Turned Trash Can for the Car!

Hello!  Today is a big day for us!  My son started Kindergarten *tear*!  I am so excited for him, but I was up half the night unable to sleep because I was so anxious about today.  He however, slept great, had "good dreams" and was so excited about today! I can't wait to hear how his day went when I pick him up in a few hours! 

So...when I am nervous-I can't sleep and when I can't sleep-I start cleaning, organizing, creating, etc.  Last night I made a trash can for my car out of an empty Cascade dishwasher gel pack container during the time I should have been sleeping. I just covered the container with some Con-Tact paper that I had used for another project and it's good to go!  I will add a trash bag so that it does not get yucky on the inside!  I got the idea from a blog post over at Calico and Cupcakes! I just love the end result!  I hope it will help keep my car more clean and organized!  

There you have it!  A smart and simple solution to conquering car trash! 

Would love to hear from you! 


  1. Love it. Going to make one. I'm tired of bags that look trashy.

  2. Hoping this will eliminate finding trash in random places around my car by my kiddos. Trash goes in the can, kiddos! :)

  3. I love this idea! It's super cute.

    It's party time over at Debt Free Mommy Blog and you're invited! Please come by and link up any post(s) related to making your home a better space. I hope you'll join us for Making Space Mondays. Hope to see you there! -Tabitha
