Looking for some fun DIY projects? See what we think of the 5 Gallon Bucket Book here!

What do you do in your house with buckets? Every so often, we purchase something that comes in a bucket and more often than not, they are collecting dust in the garage. I can’t bring myself to just toss them but we can’t really figure out what to do with these buckets.  Even worse, I see people tossing them constantly, making me cringe since they could be a plant pot or just about anything. Unfortunately, I am not the most creative person in the world when it comes to DIY projects. Luckily, there are authors with people like me in mind. When I was asked to review the 5 Gallon Bucket Book, I couldn’t wait to take a look at this fun book!

    Those buckets come in handy for lots of things. I try to reuse most things like this, they cost money to buy in the hardware stores, so if you purchase product that comes in a bucket you definitely want to try and reuse.

    We often reuse containers that other products come in. I like to recycle whenever I can.
