Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool I originally purchased this for my son to take to college, but I thought it was so cool, I kept it for myself. It is too small for him anyway. I use a regular size grocery shopping bag to line the entire thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for narrow spot The Skinny Can is truly skinny...fits in the narrowest spaces. I tucked it between the toilet & the wall for a low-profile but stylish addition to the bathroom. Lightweight but well made. Pretty color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great space saver. What a great trash can for under my desk. Leaves plenty of room and makes my under-desk area look and feel uncluttered. It's nice looking and a good size as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skinny trash can Can fits the space it was needed and matches the color of the room to boot! Good deal all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great space saver I bought the bin in the beautiful aqua color to go in the cabinet under my bathroom sink. I love the slimline design because it maximizes the depth of the cabinet rather than the width. Had I bought a round trashcan it would have taken up all the space but now I have room to put things along side. I love clever design!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim & Modern Love the sleek, slim and modern lines to this trash can. I know, it's a trash can but...I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish Skinny & Space Saving This was a great compliment to the color scheme for my daughter's dorm room. The sleek style makes it easy to put under the desk or slide in a small space. It's very easy to rinse off and clean but if you can find trash bags to fit the can, I do recommend buying some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO CUTE! The aqua color is seriously gorgeous! I'm so happy with my purchase. This is going to look great in my dorm room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for tight spaces Love the slim profile of this trash can. Plastic grocery bags fit perfectly inside as a liner, too. If it came with a flip top, it'd be perfect for the bathroom (you know, in that narrow space between the toilet and the wall?). As it is, I just use it in my bedroom, underneath the desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for odd spaces I wanted to replace the waste basket in my bathroom, which is an odd shape. The waste basket was blocking the bottom drawer of the vanity (because there is no other space that it could fit in) and it became annoying to move it every time I needed to open the drawer. I replaced it with the Skinny Can and it's now occupying the gap between the wall and the bathroom vanity, which is only wide enough to fit it! Also, the handle makes it easy to pick up and change the trash bag. I'm giving this 4 stars because the opening is quite narrow compared to a standard size waste basket & trash sometimes rebound & fall onto the floor. But, this is something that I'll have to get used to & I'll have to change my habit of tossing trash, lol. All in all, this is a great solution for odd and/or tight spaces!
Date published: 2013-06-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smaller than expected The waste basket is really small. Even though I read the dimensions it just seemed like I was going to be getting a bigger item. It's in my son's nursery and luckily he's not making a lot of garbage yet so it's great for right now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving It !!! The space under my bathroom sink was limited. This product fits a narrow opening and is still big enough to hold enough trash. The colors are beautiful and I love the handle slit. I'm definitely happy with this purchase.

Room Makeovers

You remember it. I remember it. And our kids are going to remember it: the college dorm room. And while some things change - my beloved Sting poster that was on my wall is now replaced by what? Maybe a lovely piece of art or montage of fun photos of friends and memories? Some things never change when it comes to dorm rooms - it's probably the smallest space you'll ever reside.
