Frugal Tip – Use Cereal Container for Car Trashcan

Don’t buy those expensive trashcans for your car. Take a plastic cereal container (with a snap on lid) and use it for your trashcan. These will only cost a few dollars at Walmart or your local dollar store.

I don’t know about you, but my car is always in need of a trashcan. 😉

    I use my laundry detergent box once I have emptied it. They are sturdy, and have a flip close lid. Then I just add a small trash sack. By the time it needs replacing I usually have another one ready.

    I use the small flip top trashcans you find at the Dollar stores. I think they are meant for counter tops, but they work great between the seats of my mini van!
