Pink Garbage Can!!!

Hi Guys!

Well, it's Saturday night here and I thought I would share my AWESOME pink breast cancer awareness garbage can story.  2 weeks ago, when I was doing Think Pink Week on My Pink Stamper, I was googling pink things and came across The Pink Cart.  It was the GREATEST invention in the world along the lines of garbage cans because not only was it PINK but you could use it with your garbage collection outside.

Well, I posted my findings on my Facebook Page and made a mental note to order one in the next day or so.  They come in a few different sizes and I wanted the 35 gallon one.  Well, I was at my foot therapy appointment later in the week, checking my e-mail on my phone, when I saw a contact from the makers of this AWESOME Pink Cart!  www.cascadecartsolutions.com  They told me that so many of you from my Facebook Page visited them that they wanted to thank me by sending me a FREE Pink Cart!  I SQUEEEEEELED I was so excited!!  It arrived yesterday!!!  Here are the awesome pics!!

It was almost as big as my 5 year old!!

 Isn't it gorgeous???  My husband was so surprised when he saw it sitting in the house when he got home from work. I think I forgot to tell him they were sending me one for free.  
 They also sent me 5 little miniature ones that I am going to use in My Pink Loft to put my goodies in like pens, scissors, etc.  
 I put it to good use tonight when I was cleaning out our food pantry.  What a mess!!  I think I might use it for recycling only and store it up in My Pink Loft, too.  


Hope you all have a GREAT Sunday tomorrow.  I will be practicing singing with my Primary children at church.  We have our big presentation where all the children sing in the Chapel in front of their family and friends next week.  I am the one who is responsible for the children remembering the songs I taught them throughout the year.  It always turns out so beautiful.  Wish us luck next week.

  10. That is freaking awesome! I remember you posting that your hubby didn't want one (because it was pink) lol.. I bet his face was priceless! Haha I just LOVE the baby ones.. And looked for them on their site, the first time you mentioned them, but didn't see any. Can you buy the small ones on their site?

  33. Hi Robyn,
    Our Garbage company gave a pink cart to put out at your curb that was pink. We only had to pay $12 for them to swap out our old brown can, and they made a donation to the Breast Cancer Foundation. My daughter and hubby were at the bank and they had some of the carts there to advertise for the company, and my daughter just had to have one. So my hubby got one. We haven't gotten our pink cart, but I can't wait and I think it is awesome that you did the think pink week.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow! That is so cool...how nice of them to give you one.

    ReplyDelete

  48. Congrats Robyn. Did you ever think you'd be so popular? It always amazes me when someone comments on my blog. Of course I will never be as popular as you, because I don't do videos and I don't 'teach'. My blog is just a place to upload photos to. And I don't do that often enough anyway.
    Thanks abunch for all I've learned from you.
    Hugs, Jess

  49. Just when you think you've seen it all! lol I think it is weird to call a trash can "Cute" but it is! How nice of them to send you one for free! You need to use the Cricut vinyl to cut out your house number so no one "borrows" it from you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Way to go Robyn. That is so nice of them to send you one.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, how surprising for you... This is definitely a Pink Loft kind of cart. You'll have the biggest scrap bin ever. Enjoy!Smooches

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those are darling. I like the little ones!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Robyn, I went to their website back then too. It was pretty cool. That was nice gesture. I THINK THEY SHOULD GIVE YOU A FEW OF THE MINI'S TO GIVE AWAY..hint..hint.
    Thanks to you & Garbage can Co. for supporting a worthy cause.
    Luck w/the kids.

  76. I love those tiny ones, do they sell them? I can think of a million things to use them for. If only they were purple!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Love it!!! I so want to get the big pink one... but I am 100% sure my hubster would not want to be walking that to the end of the driveway...and winter is coming so I sure as heck won't be doing it...LOL

    I will definitely be ordering the small babies ones for sure!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. awe I really wish we could get those here in Vegas. Lucky!...lol

  79. Just had to come here to post that I got my 5 baby trash cans in the mail yesterday! They are super cute! I have one on my craft table, one on my desk at home, one on my desk at work, one I'm giving to my mom who is a breast cancer survivor and the other I may give to my sister. Would have loved a big one, but our trash company will only pick up their own bins - I was so bummed when I called them, but did tell them a competitor in our area takes then, so they said they'd look into it! WooHoo! Thanks so much for the tip on these!

  83. Hello! I am [url=http://topshoesonlinestore.com]shoes shipping worldwide[/url]
    Because online [b]shoes shipping worldwide[/b].
    I was looking for a [b]shoe store uk [/b]to wear with jeans and casual outfits, and also for slightly dressier outfits. These are more dressy than casual, and didn't fit what I needed. The also ran very small, I ordered an 11ww for my 10-10 1/2 wide foot and they fit with little room to spare. On my right foot they rubbed the joint where my big toe joins my foot. Also the leather was much stiffer than I anticipated. The inside is the shiny leather or leather-look material that tends to make your feet sweat if worn without socks. Pretty shoe, would be okay for someone with an average width foot looking for a work or church type shoe, but had to go back for my purposes. I ordered the Clarks Book Romance instead, they are super soft, casual, and are okay to wear without socks.
