Do you compost? I have for years so the kids are well-trained to toss kitchen scraps into the bowl. I just keep a bowl sitting behind the sink and try to empty it once a day into the compost pile and periodically scrub it out. The scraps make a great addition to the compost, which goes into my vegetable garden, which then supplies my kitchen–so it IS part of cheap cooking!
Do you compost? What kind of container do you use? This is just a cheap metal bowl I picked up at Target.
