I'm thrifty (a.k.a. cheapy skape :)!!). And for the last 5? years, I've been composting using large plastic garbage cans with holes drilled into them. It's functional - but not near as much fun as firing up the new composter I just got for my yard!!
I will post a pic once we've got it up and running. But I can't wait to continue to do good things for the environment, eliminate garbage AND create the best fertilizer for the garden :).
