Do you take back your empty drink bottles and cans to the store for the deposit, but want to find a different way that keeps your house from looking like its full of empties all the time? Well I am here to share what I do, and maybe you will like it too!
For most of my adult life, I lived in an apartment or a shared house with not a lot of space. I try to keep these places organized, but empty bottles and cans pile up and look bad
I bought a container to keep my bottles and cans in. I keep this container in a place where it is somewhat hidden in the house. Right now it stays at the top of my stairs heading toward the basement. When I lived with my brother, we kept this container under a small table in the kitchen next to the trash cans.
The next step is to put your empties in the container. When the container is full, take it with you on your next grocery shopping trip.
This will prevent you from letting your empties get out of control because only so many cans and bottles will fit in the container. It also looks better than a trash bag.
