What it is:  This week’s storage solution is the TubTrug.


Where I got it:  I got mine (a different brand) at Target late this summer. But you can find the original TubTrug year-round here.

Why I love it:  The first thing that caught my eye was the color. See, I’ve got this thing for green and you may also recall that I have a thing for buckets. So this green, flexible, bucket-shaped container, well, it just sort of jumped in my cart. (Containers have a way of doing that when I’m out shopping.)

Anyway, I use mine for all sorts of thing around the house such as corralling cleaning supplies. They’re also handy for stowing items for short term projects like sewing supplies. And with the holidays right around the corner, I think they’ll be super-handy for hiding stocking stuffers, organizing birthday party goody bags, and fun things like that. They’d also be great for gardening in the summer (picking fresh veggies or collecting pulled weeds). And they’d be super cute in the toy room or a kid’s bedroom holding stuffed animals or other small toys. The original TubTrug is made of food grade plastic (which really opens up possibilities for use) and they come in a wide variety of sizes and colors. So really, what’s not to love?

What do you think of the TubTrug? Could you see uses for this container in your home or garden? I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas! Thanks for sharing.
