So Pinterest.. we all know that a lot of pinning is going on but not a lot of doing. I started laughing to myself as I was pinning away and realized I spent so much time pinning and had so many "to do's" on my great ideas board that it would take a year just to implement all these ideas! I limit myself now to a few minutes a day to pin unless I'm on a hunt for a specific idea. I recently added a board that is labeled "We tried it and Loved it" I think to motivate myself actually try the recipe I pinned and then move it over to the other board. Maybe I should start a board called "Did It".
Anyway, I have put into action a few of the good ideas and one was this waste basket car bin used from a cereal container. I was so excited to get this as my old car Bertha is constantly a trash collector! I bought two.. one for my car and my husband's car. He didn't gravitate towards the idea so much until it was actually used and put into major action in a horrific moment for him on our trip.
Something about 3 kids in the "business" car on a road trip that will make any man tense. You know when someone on a road trip says "I'm sick" you normally have about 5 minutes to pull over and get them out to recovery? Well my youngest who is 10 says those words and then 2 seconds later is vomiting in what looked like a horror film. God bless whoever put the stray towel back there.. oh yeah that was me.. but the true gift was from my pinning from Pinterest and getting the idea from Better Home's and Gardens website! The lined waste basket was right next to him. "GRAB THE WASTE BASKET AND PUT YOUR MOUTH IN THE SMALL HOLE...NOW!!". He did and hurled again only this time it was conveniently collected in the lined cereal container. We stopped and realized the towel got most of the other spew and I lift the lid (made an ugly face) and removed the plastic bag and tossed it.. and the towel..that easy!!
