Yeah, but then I have to take it out the back patio door, which we don't use in winter, through the snow to the composter.

So... Composters: natural or bleached?

Maybe I should try worm composting.
I made a bin last weekend. (The chickens have been kicking stuff out of the open cage bin.) This one begins as one of those blue plastic 55 gallon drums. That material cuts easily with small saws. I cut a door out of the side and hinged it with a piano hinge pop riveted on. Then I drilled holes all over the sides and ends. Installed four small bolt on eyebolts in a line, two in the door and one either side. A wire with a bent end as a stopper keeps it closed. Easy to roll back and forth periodically. I'll make another, so I can let one get near full and finish while starting to fill another. Less than $30 for all components.

I'm thinking about the thread "do you read every post"? I did, and some are hysterical.
I could care less if my coffee filters are bleached or unbleached. I do care about unbleached toilet paper in other parts of the world. You read that right, if you have never had the occasion to have nothing but unbleached toilet paper available, you would never care again about bleached or unbleached coffee filters. There are priorities in life after all.
