Descartes' theory

As we well know, Descartes said after many years of research; "I think therefore I am real". Now I feel as if that is not correct. I can think so I am real, but an object, such as a trash can or biology book cannot. Yet, we still claim that these objects are real. We can feel them, smell them, hear them when they are dropped. So is Descartes's theory correct?
