Old metal mailboxes hold up well under all kinds of conditions and have many outdoor uses, where you need storage that stays dry.
I use an old one on the corner of my garden, for holding my gardening hand tools, twine, gloves, and other little miscellany that I want to keep handy while I’m in the garden. It’s not a new idea, but it’s a good one that bears repeating!
I also found an old wooden stand that was in really tough shape, but flipped upside down, holds my rakes and shovels as well!
The mailbox cost $4.00 at a thrift store and the stand I picked up for free during Clean-Up Week in our town.
Having tools handy during gardening saves a lot of steps, time and aggravation.
Hope you find this little time-saving tip helpful!
