Arghhh! I want a new wastebasket for my living room. The current one is a light colored wicker, which doesn’t really match, and kind of small, but I’ve decided it would be perfect for lint from the dryer in the laundry room. So I’m looking for a larger one for the living room.
It’s time for all the college kiddies to move into all their dorm rooms and apartments, so I would think a little domestic item like this wouldn’t be hard to find, but I’m having a devil of a time! The grocery stores only have neon-colored plastic ones. Everything I can find in the discount stores looks like it belongs in a bathroom (polished chrome, pastel colors, or painted with seashells.) And Pier 1 and the other home-store kind of places don’t seem to have any wastebaskets at all. Baskets of every other size and description, yes, but something you tuck away in the corner the living room floor for scraps of paper and apple cores, nada. A quick prowl of the bigger rummage sales in town didn’t turn anything up, either.
So, do you have a cool wastebasket? Brag about it! Tell me what it’s like, and where you found it! And are there any obvious places to shop for one that I’m not thinking of? I’m willing to order one online, if necessary. That’s right. I’ll order a wastebasket online, if it looks cool and the price is right!
