Keep a scrap bucket outside, filled with scissors, twine, wire, and bag ties to use to tie plants to trellises when you see the need.

This is a really great tip ... saves time from having to run inside and look for something to tie up those scraggly or trailing plants!

So easy! Great solution. I must say my "stuff" is all over the place but my little brain seems to be able to keep track of it. Weird. Whistling

I have one of those soft plastic totes from Walmart that I use. It really saves a lot of time running back and forth. Thumbs up

I have an old wicker basket with useful garden "stuff" that sits in a convenient spot on the deck!

I had to do this several years ago because I was sick and tired (SICK AND TIRED!!!!) orf running into the house all the time. Even now, life on my balcony dictates using this little container quite often.

I am one of those who has to keep running inside to get something I need. Now, I'll get one of my many baskets and put all my garening things in it. I lose my gloves all the time, forget where I take them off. Thumbs up

I am with you Onewish! It would need to be one with holes or a lid, because I would leave it out in the "rain"...if we ever get it again in N Central Texas!
Great tip Becky!

I tip my hat to you.
Another thing I do is keep a baggie in the kitchen to save the zip ties from various products. When it gets full, I add those to my red basket.
