A few weeks ago the fine people at Red Hill General Store sent me the handiest 5 quart bucket. And of course it was a redish burgundy color. Perfect for my red obsession.
After a week or so with the bucket, I have discovered the perfect use for the bucket...
I wish I could take the credit for the ingenious use. But, I can't. My friend Betsy who cleans my house for me every Friday was the clever one behind this great use of the bucket. I have sunscreen and bug spray laying all over my house. Now, it is all in one location. Movable location to boot.
So, now the handy dandy bucket sits right by the door to head outside when nature calls.
It is perfect size for the little squirts in my house to even pick it up and carry it with them. That way they can't have an excuse for why they didn't have more sunscreen to apply later in the day.
Or if the weather decides to send the rain somewhere else, the pool.
Loving the bug and its ability to help me stay a little, tiny bit more organized. For now.

The Red Hill General Store sent me the bucket for me to use and keep free of charge so I could share ideas, pictures and ways to use their fine bucket. They did not require I talk about how I loved their bucket. That happened as my relationship with the bucket evolved.

So glad you found such a handy use for your bucket! We enjoyed reading your blog.
I love your blog.
PLease take a look at my blog.
Wow, looks like you are all organized and ready for summer. (And I really like the red color too.)
Just cause it's simple doesn't mean it's not super hellufp.
I told my kids we'd play after I found what I needed. Damnit.
You've managed a first class post
A great use for the bucket and we also have a ton of sunscreen around our house. Your disclaimer at the end gave me a chuckle.
Jep sounds like a smart thing to do with a nice little red bucket like that!
