How does one find a lost trash barrel?

I try to place a trash barrel, the message says I already have one. Probably true, I put one up when I first started redistributing my stuff from the moving crate, and moved it several times. My castle is full of stuff, so 'ctrl shift' is no help. I can't remember where I put it, I've tried walking round the walls trying to find a corner where movement is blocked, without success.

Any suggestions?

Found it!  Looked for ages, and found it as soon as I gave up and decided to ask for help.

    For future reference, EC has an object handle filter that makes it easy to find things in just these sort of situations. If you don't have EC, just ask a friend who does to pop over and look for you. I've found this handy on many occasions.

    I do use EC, and am aware of the object handle filter, however I could find no way to set it that helped with the problem. 
    How would you have set it in this instance?

    I use the Switch Object Handle tool. Setting the filter to "trash" or "barrel" or "trash barrel" all works for me on my computer.

    Thank you.  I was not familiar with that tool. Though aware a way to switch on the fly was possible, I didn't know about the filter on it. I am always happy to learn something new about the game. :)
