I don’t know why I do this, but I do! And I have for a long time. As long as I can remember! In my mind, it’s helpful, because when enough garbage accumulates on the counter, I throw it away. Buuuut my wife has a point- if I just put it directly in the garbage… that could be a real game changer! Try as I might, the closest I can get garbage to the trash bin is about a foot and a half. Hahaha!
