Bargain Buy

Bought this cute gardening bucket/tool keeper yesterday:

Doesn't it look like it will be a great help in the garden?  Here it is filled up with garden tools and such:

This is going to be a great help to me in the garden.  It will cut down on the number of steps I will have to take, and I can imagine it will cut down on lost/left out tools, too.  I am extremely excited!

I've tried the tool belt.  I kept dropping tools while bending over, or stabbing myself in the stomach.  Plus it didn't hold many tools, so it really wasn't all that practical.  This seems so much more useful.

Best of all?  I bought it at Hobby Lobby for 50% off - I only paid $6.50! (plus tax, of course)  (US dollars)  Less than I paid for lunch!

What do you use to carry things around the garden?
What is your best garden bargain buy?


  1. I like your bucket. I take a big wheelbarrow all around the garden, and a little bucket on my wheelbarrow with scissors, string, scateurs and weeding tool. And an extra bucket for weeds that need disposed.

  2. Why I garden - You sound very organized! I'm working on it! The scissors and string are a great idea. I need to add those to my bucket. Thanks!

  3. I envy your ability to be organized. I have tools scattered everywhere, then when I go looking for them I discover this or that needs to be trimmed, or some weeds to pull or wow what a pretty flower I need a vase...and I forget why I was looking for the tool in the first place. It's a wonder I get anything done at all.

  4. Hoover Boo - I think that is why I was so excited about this bucket. My tools have a terrible time getting back to the garage at the end of the day. I completely understand your 'tool-gathering wanderings'.
