53 uses for FREE buckets! I LOVE 5 gallon buckets, well I THOUGHT I did until I found how how expensive they were. Then I found out how I could get FREE buckets

I LOVE 5 gallon buckets… well… I THOUGHT I did until I found how how expensive they were.   BUT then…I found out how I could get FREE buckets that were 2.5-3 gallons and were even BETTER than the 5 gallon ones! Because 5 gallon buckets are SO expensive (I mean, they are just a bucket), I am 100% willing to transition to a smaller FREE bucket! Check out my post HERE on how you can get them for free!

I now prefer the 3 gallon ones because they aren’t as bulky, and are so much lighter when I use it for bulk food storage.

  • Mix cement or mud for drywall
  • Great use for using a paint roller

As a result, 53 outdoor and indoor uses for buckets!  Now, go to your closest grocery store with a larger bakery and ask away to take a few home!  It’s usually easier to find them in the winter vs summer times.
