I use one in my boat as a "bale out" scoop/bucket. I agree

Those milk jugs are great! Scoops, funnels, winter-sowing...

I like the way you cut it at an angle for scooping. Why was I using a straight-across one?

Thanks for the tip & photo!

Great idea! I have misplaced my large scoop, but I do have some gallon jugs handy.

The pictures are very helpful! I like the jug being cut at an angle. Will try as soon as I get an empty jug. Thanks.
