Day Three: Saved 5-Gallon Bucket

Day Three: Saved a Five Gallon Bucket from the Landfill

While I was walking around my ‘hood today, there was a 5-gallon bucket laying on the sidewalk to be tossed out. I brought it back to my apartment and will plant something in one of my urban gardens (that’ll be another post).

Here are some other ways you can use the container:

  • Storing tools or gardening supplies in the garage
  • Organizing toys in a child’s room or playroom
  • Carrying and storing cleaning supplies
