Intro: Garbage Can
Some of us cannot afford garbage cans, and there are a few of us who cannot afford the garbage bags to fill those cans. But the lot of us shop for groceries.
This instructable will help you take those leftover bags from the grocery store and use them to create a usable garbage can.
Step 1: You Get the Lime and the Coconut
1. Get a paper bag and a plastic bag. (when I shop I generally separate the boxes and cans into the paper bags, the perishables into the plastic bags).
Step 2: You Put the Lime IN the Coconut
2. Insert the plastic bag into the paper bag.
3. Make diagonal cuts into the paper bag -- two on each side.
Step 3: Origami
Insert the plastic bag handles into the slots you cut in the paper bag.
Step 4: Fill That Coconut!
6. Fold the (longer) sides of the paper bag in one-inch segments until they meet the other sides of the paper bag.
Step 5: Done!
7. Fill with garbage.
The plastic bag prevents any leakage through the paper bag; the whole can be thrown out when necessary.
