Fab & Fru Find


The Trash Can That Makes Cleaning Fun

Wish your kids would clean up their own rooms – without you nagging? We may have found the perfect item – just in time for the holiday shopping season.  It’s the Spalding Wastepaper Basketball Basket - and at only $10 it’s a totally Fab & Fru find!

Turning cleaning into a game – why didn’t we think of this?  I was at Bed, Bath & Beyond yesterday when I saw this trash basket that looks like a basketball hoop.  Even better, it comes with it’s own “wastepaper basketball” instructions right on the label.  But the real test was that my 6 & 9 year old kids lit up when they saw it – not their usual reaction to trash cans.  In no time, the candy wrappers and old tic tac toe games were off the floor and being lobbed into the basket – without me having to ask.

I’m also planning to keep a few of these on hand for birthday gifts – they stack easily so you don’t need a lot of space to store them.  And, I have to admit – it’s made cleaning more fun for me too!
