like, for putting rubbish in
But they're shockingly expensive. £30 plus for a decent sized one. I refused to pay that, so the one in the kitchen in my flat is stupidly tiny, but I'm not spending more than a tenner on a bin.
I spent £30 on my bin. When the ex and I split up he kept the bin and claimed that he payed for it! Thus leaving me binless. When he told me he was leaving for Singapore, I was secretely pleased about getting my bin back.
stands to reason they'd nick a bin.
Yes, yes he was (and still is, to my knowledge).
that he mental on your first date about paying for dinner? Maybe it was someone else.
When I first bought by house, I used a small carrier bag on the back of the cupboard door. My sister moved in for a while and hated it so that Christmas bought me a bin! It's a fancy brabantia one which I suspect cost c£50ish
Here is my bin: http://www.guardianfashionstore.co.uk/search.php?keywords=alto+bin
Mine is cream.
(what a thread!)
with lavish consumer spending, innit.
Kitchen bin needs to be a bit bigger and sturdier but also usually need to fit into a designated space.
Bathroom and bedroom bins can be small cheap affairs.
Outside bins need to be able to hold gallons of rain water.
I've got a bin in the living room which is an annoying size as it's slightly too large to be lined with a normal sized carrier bag.
it's not just about price. There's a whole range of factors to take into consideration: volume, shape, sturdiness, colour, swing flap v. pedal.
If you give these details short shrift, you risk consigning yourself for an age of poorly fitting bin bags and/or unnecessary expense buying bags when you could line your bin for free by re-using plastic bags from grocery shopping.
I recommend you put some research into it. For instance, have you identified and ranked your three most preferred waste-receptacle-storage locations?
£100 for kitchen
Silver, 50 litres, mouse proof. Bin.
a vintage kartell one that is discontinued
I think its going to set me back about £30
it's nice tho
This thread is starting to pay it's own way
as of 14.50.
im 29 years old.
i am 29 yrs old
does that help? it was £1.50
i wouldn't spend much on a mop tho
£1.50 sounds like a good deal although i'd be a bit wary at that price. i'd pay £5 for a good mop
when i move mop. So like everything wilkinsons sells it fit the bill perfectly.
You probably think you can pick up a good 50 litre receptacle for under £30 but you don't know the market. It's tough out there
OOOH, LOOK AT ME CLINGING TO MY YOUTH.
It was plastic, cheap, had a lid, light to carry, and most importantly functioned perfectly well as a rubbish receptacle.
IT WAS RUBBISH THEN? LOLOLOL
THis is alright- http://www.marksandspencer.com/Marks-and-Spencer-Kitchen-Bullet/dp/B003FWNVCE?extid=TP_2_FRO_T_MSF_
This is twee and overpriced, but still quite cute- http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/gardentrading/product/kitchen_pedal_bin
I used to have this one. I have no idea what happened when I sold the house. I thikn I must have left it for the new owners-
Aside from accumulating Ikea 'Fniss' jobbers (you know the ones), I've bought 3 bins before.
1 was a kids giraffe-alike for the bathroom. The other was an equivalent Zebra one. That went in the bedroom. The third bin was one of these @ £12 affairs http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/8424262.htm
They've since been binned. THE IRONING. Haven't bought a bin for 6 years now. The flat had a small wicker one in each loo when we bought it. We have a shopping back hanging on the kitchen door and wang that down the BIN CHUTE every day or so.
The bag on handle thing is pretty fucking povvo if you ask me, but if I buy a bin, I'll want it to be THE BIN rather than some half way compromise. Thusly, we haven't bought one cos I can't bring myself to drop the cash required to get THE ONE.
My life with bins is somewhat similar to michael_w's is with girls: destined to be a story of the search for an unattainable perfection and a string of 'what might have been' stories.
as soon as you think you've found 'the one', you find a fault, and go searching for another 'the one'.
so about £60 + basically....i.e. too much.....unless it was a present, but I havnt the heart to buy her that for christmas or birthday ........perhaps for valentines (ironically)
it would look amazing all wrapped up tho
(I may have to do some calculations first though)
some veg peelings draped of 'em for added realism?
you know ... women stuff.
soap n that.
full of home made recyled badly made by you stuff. ie. your bin would be an old bit of piping.
Preferred method of opening bin
a)Pedal you step on - not for me as it will inevitably break and then your bin is useless
b) Touch button thing that opens with very slight pressure - my current bin but could face some problems as a), thankfully hasn't happened yet though, fingers crossed
c) Swing bin - not just a rubbish genre of music but also a bin opening method too. Not bad, probably won't break but will get COVERED in beans and tea bags
e) No top on the bin - bit moody and smelly
d for paper type bin
d) dustbin stylee lid w/ handle on top, yeah?
f) spring loaded flap - a cross between posho b) and povvo c)
secret option d) - Royters' old girl bent double, legs akimbo, corned beef arse shimmering, orange peel buttocks creasing, collecting household refuse like a pikey non discrimantory magpie.
Unlucky pal, unlucky.
