Where is your kitchen trash can?

Ours is in the pantry and I think that's gross but I really don't know where else to put it. I change it everyday and there are air fresheners but I still feel kinda weird putting our trash where we keep out food. Husband says it's okay. There are no corners in the kitchen that it would fit. And we have a 1 year old who would love for it to be out so she can play in it. So I guess it stays, but where is yours?

  • In my old house I kept it in the laundry room right next to the kitchen because my twins wouldn't stay out of it.  In our new house I have it out under the edge of the counter, and the twins are doing pretty well leaving it alone (they're 3 now).

  • mine is in the pantry as well, for all the same exact reason as yours! i tried buying a little one and keeping it under the sink but that lasted a few days and i got tired of replacing the bag more than once a day! i had restraints about putting mine in the pantry too, but i really have no other option.
