I have to get to the dollar store more often. That looks like it would be great for many garden tasks,
like mixing small batches of soil for my pots, moving small batches of ..... from A to Z.

Thanks for sharing this. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. Hurray! Hurray!

I check the Dollar Store quite often, never know what you may come across. I found some small containers (think they are for paints) but I am going to use them to store pollen and seeds.

No matter how much "stuff" I buy specifically to use in the garden, some of my kitchen bowls, knives and what have you always end up outside! Hilarious!

(Which just goes to show how handy those things are !)

Yes, I have went and retrieved my kitchen knives from outside more times than I like to admit!

Don't forget that the second hand stores like Goodwill and Salvation Army have a lot of good stuff cheap, too. I always keep an eye out for something that could be re-purposed.

We save gallon milk jugs and the big bottles of honey that have handles etc. and cut them to make into scoops that I use like you mentioned. Totally free but very handy!

I have that same exact bowl, and it is the bowl everyone wants when they are sick to their stomachs. Nice handle, deep enough, easy to empty afterward with that pour spout. *Blush* Now I need to get a second one to use for picking strawberries and beans and things, because I can't quite bring myself to put food into it any more.

Oooh, I'll have to go look for the red ones. Though I think the white one will always be the "sick bowl" now. No amount of bleach will ever wipe those images from my brain. LOL I'll have to see if I can get them to replace the phrase "puke bowl" with "sick bowl." It sounds so much nicer. Rolling on the floor laughing
