5 gallon buckets at home
People tend to overlook how useful 5 gallon buckets are. Whether you’re at home, in the office, in the garden, camping, chances are you’ll probably need a 5-gallon bucket or more. Below are some examples of its use at home.
In the kitchen
There will always be something to store in the kitchen. Most of the time food and drink. But small kitchen utensils also need a container when you don’t have one. Some 5 gallon buckets in the kitchen can come as a big help. When storing food and beverages, however, always make sure the 5-gallon buckets are made of food-grade plastic materials. It is always important to be safe than sorry. When you have 5 gallon food buckets, you can start storing sugar, grains, cereals, and/or milk.
In the game room
Sometimes it’s very frustrating when kids start playing but never clean up their toys afterwards. Rearranging them one by one in good order on the shelves can also be very tiring. Especially if they start messing with them in the next 5 minutes. Why not have 5 gallon buckets of color and teach the kids about organization? If the job is easy enough to do, surely they won’t sulk while doing it, right? So the toy cars in the blue bucket, the dolls in the pink, the stuffed animals in the yellow, etc.
In the garage
So many tools, so little space. 5 gallon buckets can be useful in this case. What you need to do is assemble your tools based on features and dimensions. Cleaning tools should be placed with other equipment or supplies of the same function, placed in a 5-gallon bucket, then labeled on the outside to indicate what is stored inside. Do the same with garden tools or supplies and carpentry tools. A well organized garage is what you will get.
In the study room
Research shows that Americans waste approximately 4 million tons of office paper per year. Here’s a little tip: Recycle your paper and use it until you’re ready to use it. When you receive a letter or print out a document that you no longer use, store it in a 5-gallon bucket for future use. You may need to use scrap paper one of these days and you can save the environment by using both sides of the used paper stored there.
Around the house
So it’s cleaning day. Why not take your 5 gallon bucket and place your cleaning tools inside, going from room to room as you clean each part of the house? When you find trash in your path, pick it up and drop it in the bin, then continue cleaning. When things are done in a practical way, the job of cleaning doesn’t seem so bad.
These are just a few things one can handle 5 gallon buckets at home. There are many other things when plastic buckets are very versatile in everyday life, wherever we are. The following articles will discuss how 5 gallon buckets can be useful in the garden, on the camping trip, and even in the office.
