The Auto Light Switch

Photo by Melinda Young StuartWe have a pantry with a door, and consequently it has a light. We keep the trash can in there because we have three animals, all of whom are too curious and tempted by the things inside.

We keep the door closed, but that means when my hands are full of wet garbage, I have to lever open the door with my elbow and hope I can see well enough to get everything in the garbage can. Or I can use my garbage-filled hands to turn on the switch. (Ick) I was constantly having to wipe down the switch.

A few weeks ago I asked my husband to install a motion activated light. A trip to the hardware store and a bit of electrical work, and I have an automatic light in the pantry.

I cannot believe I have lived so long without one.

I don’t have to worry about not being able to see things on the shelves or get everything into the trash can.

Every time I go into the pantry I tell myself how wonderful it is. And so now you know too.
