Regarding the knives, I purchased a storage center I just love. I ordered it
from Brookstone: hard to find products. To describe it, it is appx. 8X12
plastic board with dividers which fits about 8 knives. It mounts to the
inside of your kitchen cabinets with adhesive/or screws. (I used the adhesive
only and they are powerful). I put them so high up that even if my daughter
gets to the countertop, she won't be able to reach them. I order two of them
for about $24 (including shipping). A note that if you have a Brookstone
store near you, they did not carry this product. Also, Brookstone is
out-of-state for me, but the knife center ended up being manufactured in
I bought a toilet-lock which I think would work just as well on a garbage can.
Again, this is an adhesive-based product. Two straps about 3 inches long
each which come together with a clasp. I bought it a Toys R. Us.
