a bucket list

18 February 2011

I was on my little Thursday night outing last night and got a little excited to see these in Target’s dollar spot:

You can check your Target Dollar Spot, I noticed that there were also some in the party section!

Little tin buckets are my best friend. Stick them in the bathroom with some washcloths tucked in,

use them for storage, {if I ever get to creating my craft space, I would love to line a bunch of them on a shelf to hold supplies}
bucket nod crayons{land of nod}

we used them in our playroom to hang from hooks to hold chalk & erasers,

PB used them for an advent calendar,buckets pb{ pottery barn}

for party favors or easter baskets,bucket favors

grow grass or herbs in them,bucket herb

And speaking of herbs, they had these plant stakes again: 5 in a package for $1! love them.February 2011 019 1

If you can't find them at Target, Amazon has some great options for just over $1/bucket

Are buckets on your list? What’s your favorite way to use them? Do you hoard them like to keep some on hand?

    we must be on the same page. I bought some of these at Target yesterday too! I was so excited to see them in the dollar section there (cause our target's dollar section has been pretty sparce lately). I'm planning on using some in our new play room for crayons, markers, and colored pencils. I may need to go pick a few more up after seeing your post with other ideas of ways I could use them too.
    Hope you have a great weekend!
