Are you planning to have a large gathering at your home but need more trash cans? Easily make a makeshift trash can out of a laundry hamper!

To do this, get a collapsable laundry hamper — in this case, I used one that’s about 18 inches wide and 30 inches tall.

Then simply take your trash bag and put it in the collapsable laundry hamper – at the end of the day take the bag out, dispose of the trash and collapse the laundry hamper to store!

Watch the video above for more information!
