My advise is to have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the tools. Besides we do enough.

I used two of my larger ones as first aid kits.

Thanks you guys for the suggestions!
All great ideas, but agree I probably won't be giving any to hubby to put stuff in either.
He forgets where he was placed a tool, assumes it is gone forever, buys a new one. Then in the process of looking for a completely different item, he finds the original to the duplicate he just bought! Good thing is, I have built up my own tool collection that I keep hidden from him of all his duplicates...tee he he!

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

A good rule to follow. I only touch the ones I might need in the barn, I have my own with pink handles so he won't use them

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I reuse practically everything. The quart-sized supplements are now my scoops in my dog food and cat food metal (garbage) storage cans. When I travel for a day or two I bring my horses's grain and a measure in them--you have to save the lids for this. One supplement plastic container is now used to carry chicken feed to my flock's feeders. A couple of containers with self-lids are used for gardening. The possibilities are endless. =D

Unless he cooks from time to time and does his own laundry - you are doing it wrong!

I am a bucket hoarder,I admit it ,I'm in a 12 step program... but it's not working. I use them for everything I even keep a few in the truck "just in case" they have come in handy out here ,there is always some sort of livestock running around the roads around here and the universal word for "come here" is hold out a bucket!
