    Great! I love putting things (including information) right where I am going to need them.  I would advise giving the ashes a bit more than a day, though.  Embers can last a long time.  I usually clean out the stove then leave the ashes in the can until right before the stove needs cleaning again.  Maybe 3-4 weeks...

    I do too. I usually put them in there, and it takes a while to fill up. And then I forget about it for a while until I need to empty the ash from my woodstove, and then I empty the wood ash container.
