While playing $200 for a trashcan still is outrageous but if it lasts 10 years and i don't need to purchase another trashcan for 10 years it maybe worth it (verdict still out). I'm willing to pay the $$ to get the eye candy, longevity or solve a simple annoying problem in some aspects of life

A good well designed product is sometimes worth the cost that one may not understand until owning it themselves, then wonder how they lived without it.

I'm your average middle class RFD'ER looking out for deals and whatnot, bought a robot vacuum for the simple convince. Some loved it and bought themselves others said it was a wasteful purchase and I'm lazy.

Some will pay $200 for a quantity trashcan while others will shame them for the wasteful purchase.

To each their own
Live and let live

Enjoy the deal for those that purchase it.

I am the typical 100k RFDer (actually closer to 170k with bonuses).
No way on god's green earth would I pay $100 for a garbage can.

It has limited design value and will likely go out of style in 3-5 years.
So even if it will last ten years its actual 'value' is really only 5 years.
IMO this is a poor value proposition.

Great deal, been hunting down this for a little while and snagged one this morning at Yonge and College.

Saw 3 others reserved for pickup when I checked out.

Thanks OP!

It's not about salary, you think it's a wasteful purchase but OP doesn't, it's that simple.

The ones that thought i was lazy for getting a robot vacuum earn double my salary (it probably won't last even 5 years, cost more and it only picks up garage). These same people think using Amazon prime is a bad thing and makes you lazy, but from my perspective it makes my life easier and much more convenient/comfortable.

Why give OP a hard time for sharing a deal? Even if it's for an expensive trashcan.

It always amuses me when people don't get a deal or they sh*t on one because they wouldn't buy it. There is a market for a lot of things, garbage cans being one of them.
That's like saying a BMW isn't worth it because you can get a Honda that will do almost the same thing. Well, a Honda isn't a BMW.
This seems to be a good deal for those who prefer this type of garbage system.

It's not just a garbage can. It's a vessel for my trash and shit before it goes into the landfill to be with mother earth once more.

Agree with you - this is about perceived value of the deal which is what these threads should be about.
I have not voted this thread up or down, merely stated my opinion on whether I think it’s a good deal (and why).
If this were some unique, amazing piece of architecture I might be inclined to place greater value on it.

Guys, maybe stop jumping on your garbage cans. I've spent $20 on garbage cans in the last five years because I only bought one and didn't think to use the pedal as a trampoline. Anyway, higher price doesn't automatically mean better quality or even close to that. Everyone wants to fill their house with only BiFL items, but the retailers and manufacturers know their customers will fork out a lot more for that BiFL brand. Anyway, sorry for disturbing your safe space. Here's a nice video about our distrust of cheap things:

Came in for a SimpleHuman garbage can deal, left with a minor in idealism philosophy.

I hope this site never changes lol.

(...) I see every piece as being part of the aesthetic. So if one thing is off it'll ruin the other 5k worth of stuff in the room. In that sense, I'd honestly be willing to pay 300-400 for a perfect trash can. In life, I'm willing to pay to avoid multiple small inconveniences, which, compacted, amount to a big difference. (...)

A good garbage can, though a tad pricey. (...)

Yes, indubitably, a "tad" pricey. What color is the sky in YOUR world?

Op fixed his typo
I wish it was $113.99, that’s a good deal for a clean looking garbage storage

What an oxymoron
I think $113 is a good deal for this, not sure what the contradiction in my sentence was....that it’s a good deal for a garage can of this type?

Obviously a dollarama basket with grocery bags works too which I have in the basement but in the kitchen where I spent money to make everything look nice, this would compliment it...in fact I was thinking of the Joseph Joseph intelligentWate totem but $300 was not good value for the size in my kitchen, that’s more for a lux condo suite

One could also live in a shack that provides shelter....or drive a beater

I think it’s already been said enough in this thread, different value for different folks, no matter the income, all perceived value

Ex. People with low-avg income drop $1k on Canada Goose when something $100-300 does the same thing
