Your Kitties Can Have Their Own Litter-Box Palace Thanks to This Affordable Hack

As much as I adore my cats, having to constantly vacuum up litter — and, yes, the rare turd — they've tracked through my apartment gets old fast. While I typically place rubber mats outside their litter boxes in an effort to keep the mess at bay, this new hack using a plastic storage tote will please humans and cats alike.

All humans have to do to turn their feline's litter box into an oasis is a cut a sizable hole into the side of a plastic storage tote. From there, place a few strips of cheap carpet or an old towel on the floor of the bin before putting your litter box on top. You can even add a fun motion-sensor light to give your kitties a little brightness just in case they need to use the loo at night! Plus, as someone who has had cats all her life, the tub's plastic lid should also contain the smell — and that's a win for everyone.
