What does it look like behind your rubbish bin? I really call it a trash can, but doesn't rubbish bin sound more cultured? I'm going to call it that from now on. When I remember. Once we set up the house after moving in, I noticed the lid for the one we used most was chewing a hole into my wall, and the mess was getting bigger! Now that I've got fresh paint, I want to keep it that way! I looked online, and found some cool gadgets to keep your trash can, er, rubbish bin a few inches away from wall, therefore eliminating the gouging entirely, to the tune of $13 each. So I got inventive with mostly what I had on hand. The only things I needed to purchase for this hack was placemats from Target. They're manufactured with woven, plastic coated strands, and I liked that they were wipe-able. $8 total.
