Review & #Giveaway – Stowing Recycling Out of Site w/ The @Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler – Ends 4/2

The last week here at 2 Kids and a Coupon, the warm weather has inspired spring cleaning and my husband and I have been working on getting our house, garage, cupboards and closets more organized. We’ve been cleaning out and donating unneeded items, and also trying to find the perfect storage solutions to help us remain a little more organized.


This past week we’ve had the opportunity to try out the new Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler that gets recyclables off the counter and hidden out of sight. We recycle a LOT here at 2 Kids and a Coupon, however sometimes this can cause a bit of clutter since our recycling is only picked up every couple weeks. This handy bag attaches to the inside of a cabinet door with hooks included with the product or screws to have a neat, clean and hidden place to stow your recyclables. The 5 gallon bag that holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and can fit a milk jug, and has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable to make it easy to clean after any unexpected spills. It’s also got a convenient handle allows the bag to easily be transported to wherever your recycling is stored for pick-up or transport. The bag is also soft-sided allowing for flexibility inside any cabinet.


This product is a very cool and discreet way to make recycling handy, even when you have limited space. While I wasn’t sure how much it could hold due to the compact size when I got it, the bag is surprisingly spacious and holds a great deal. It works great for all your recycling, or (if you’re in a state with a bottle and can redemption policy like Iowa) it would also work great for saving your containers for redemption. It’s convenient to use while cooking and dodging toddlers, and it’s also can be placed in a spot where you can teach your kids to assist with recycling. 


The bag and all packaging is made from recyclable material, and the product is recyclable. The Hidden Recycler is currently available for purchase online at and in store at Meijer locations for a suggested retail price of $15.99. For more information on this product visit Rubbermaid’s website here. You can also follow them on Facebook here and Twitter here. You can also follow their Adventures in Organization Blog

    We had storm damage in January and are still in boxes. I’m craving getting back to normal so I get do a good cleaning. I think the tip I like best is: “If you’re rearranging the pantry, don’t stop to clean the refrigerator.” In other words, finish one task and don’t get pulled off track with another one.
