Temporary Extension Cord Protection - If you're having a party or some other event in the yard and you need additional electricity sources, here's a great way to keep extension cord plugs dry. Cut notches in the opposite sides of a reusable plastic container and snap on the lid. Your plugs will stay dry if it happens to rain or the ground is moist.
Free Funnels Use common plastic bottles for largemouth or very-fine funnels instead of store-bought ones. These funnels are disposable/recyclable when no longer needed. When you find an unusual bottle, cut the top off and store it for future use. Keep your collection in a box in the garage.
