Isn't it fun, then, when you think of a way to get a gadget free or for little money? Many knitters have gone to the hardware store for little plastic washers, an inexpensive purchase that can replace stitch markers.
A few days ago I went to Fazoli's restaurant and I had a coupon for a free Italian Lemon Ice. It came in a plastic cup with a dome and a good-sized hole cut into the dome. Inspiration!! I washed it out and now it is my little table-top garbage container. I'm still working on my sock yarn afghan (now 85% finished!) and after each block I weave in ends, trim them, and deposit them into the cup.
The fuller it gets, the prettier and more colorful it looks, so I'm in no rush to empty it out. Table top garbage containers are widely available, e.g. Starbucks, in case you'd like one for yourself!!
