    Is there any way to find out the size of my trash? I dont wnat to find out each individual file size and then add them all up - but rather the size of the entire trash bin.

    Thanks

    Open Terminal, type:

    du -sh ~/.Trash/

    Code:
    yellow% /usr/bin/du -sh ~/.Trash/
    100M    /Users/yellow/.Trash/

    For a GUI solution, select all the files in the Trash and type command-option-I (Show Inspector). It will (eventually) show the total size of the files.
