Compost upgrade

I finally replaced my old system for collecting kitchen scraps for my compost pile.

I spent a fun date day with my youngest daughter (who's getting married in October).  We shopped and thrifted to our hearts content.

We visited a World Market about an hour from our home to see what kind of treasures we could find. 

This is what I came home with:

I have seen these compost buckets in catalogs for $25-$30 dollars.  I paid $14.99 for mine. 

It fits nicely under my kitchen sink next to the produce wash I use.  It's cute enough to stay on the counter but I just don't have the room to keep it there. 


  1. I have that same compost bucket and love it!

  2. Hey, I have that same bucket. I use it mostly in winter when I don't get out as often - in summer, I have a diaper pail on the deck hiding under the BBQ cover! I will have to take some time to look through your blog as I am always looking for ways to make the most of my home! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

  3. I like your little bucket. Where did you find it for such a great price? We use an old coffee can under the sink for our compost, your's is much nicer.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
