I like the packaging idea. So many things come in sturdy packages that seem to BEG for up/recycling. Cat litter containers are one. Some of those squared buckets are hardcore, and I absolutely hate tossing them out. But what to do with them?
oh, I only wish you lived near me! I could use them to put my entire veggie garden in come spring. But, more seriously, take them to your local daycare centers. they use them for storing blocks, toys, socks, mittens, anything at all!
