Compost Bin

I tend to be thrifty.  I was excited about waste management offering a new addition to our current recycling program--but at $14 additional a month.  I decided to purchase a compost bin instead.  This simple bin cost around $40 at Sam's Club (similar to the picture below).  Easy to put together and get started.   
Since today was the last official day of "spring break" (except for the weekend) and was cold, I thought I would bake.It amazed me that I sent three bowls full of materials out to the compost bin:  spilled flour and sugar, egg shells, tea bags, coffee grinds, seven banana peels, etc.  Granted--not a ton; however, if every person in my neighborhood alone would have done that today . . .
