The Best Bathroom Wastebaskets That You Can Buy on Amazon

Bathroom trash cans aren’t something most people give a whole lot of thought. It sits in the corner of your bathroom, usually smashed up against the toilet if you have a small bathroom. What trash can goes in the bathroom might not seem significant, but just think about how many makeup wipes, Q-tips, cotton balls and single face-mask packages you throw away on a daily basis. That wastebasket is a big part of your get-ready routine. If you’re going through great lengths to look Insta-ready, you want to make sure your waste bin can keep up. 

Side-note: It’s also one of the few pieces of furniture that visitors or guests are going to notice in your bathroom, so it might be time to throw out that ancient trash can that has gum stuck to the bottom of it from college.

Following in the footsteps of digital TV
distributors and communications companies to gain more business, Amazon Fire TV, a pay TV provider of networks, has struck a deal with Discovery Inc. to give away the cable network group’s Food
Network Kitchen streaming app service free for a year.

Amazon Fire TV has around 40 million subscribers, according to the company.

subscribers to the new streaming service.

Apple has also offered a complimentary year of Apple TV+  —  a competing product to Disney+ also launched around the same
period — to buyers of any of its devices.

Coronavirus Prompts Instacart and Amazon Strikes Over Health Concerns

Signaling both growing anxiety and growing solidarity brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, workers in a variety of occupations across the country are protesting what they see as inadequate safety measures and insufficient pay for the risks they are confronting.

On Monday, a contingent of workers who fulfill orders for the grocery delivery service Instacart stayed off the job, demanding greater pay and better access to paid leave and disinfectant.

A group of workers walked off the job at an Amazon warehouse in Staten Island on Monday, and a sickout called by Whole Foods Market workers is set for Tuesday. Last week, nurses in the Bronx protested a lack of protective equipment, and sanitation employees in Pittsburgh staged a protest over working conditions.

Labor experts and union organizers said anxieties related to the pandemic appeared to be widely shared among front-line workers across different companies, job categories and classifications. “Whether

The bathroom may be the last spot you’d think about placing your Amazon Echo — you’re usually busy showering or brushing your teeth, and that area of the house is filled with germs and bacteria. However, it can prove to be convenient to have Alexa in the bathroom.

The trick is to figure out the best spot to place your Amazon Echo ($100 at Amazon) device — not too close to the toilet and nowhere near running water. So read on to find out where in your bathroom to put your speaker and all the benefits of having
