One of the first items I ever pinned was this:
For years, I had one purple and one magenta trash can. There were big cylindrical cans--just right for a big class--and, of course, the perfect colors for my room.
Time got the best of them, however, and, after years of devoted service, they both cracked. I tried glue. And tape. And I can strongly suggest against both options.
I searched for a looooooooong time for a another colorful replacement, but the best I could come up with was black. In fact, I never really did see many other suitable-for-the-classroom options besides black, white and various shades of red.
So, for a year, I suffered in a state of trash-can-boredom with my plain back cans. And then Pinterest came along...
After pinning that picture, I was determined to buy a Cricut. Or a Cameo. Or both. I needed circles. Thankfully, those purchases didn't happen, because I have since decided that crafts just aren't in my future. However, I DID find these...
And, happily, JOYFULLY even, I now have two trash cans that look like this!
I just love my trash cans. Sometimes it IS the littlest thing that can make a teacher happy...
