There are free patterns and blogs that show how to make your own organizer. It pays to know someone who sews, or to learn to sew.
This is also a great way to teach the kids to pack their own blanket, change of clothes, spare shoes, extra socks, first aid kit, flashlight MREs, snacks and go spend the night away from home. You can find out how much weight and how far they will carry it on an afternoon hike.
This bucket per child tool is also a training tool for kids with too much stuff. Give them a small toy bucket. The XBox, tablet, family computer are tools not toys. Books don't go in here. Give them a bucket and tell them more toys than this is too many and they have to pick their favorites, the ones they actually play with go in the bucket to keep. After they have picked up their toys and decided what is important to them, you can give the rest to charity or help them throw their own little yard sale to learn how to make their own money. I know you love your little rug rats, but, imagine their room with three buckets and no clutter! And, as long as we are talking kid clutter, one bucket should be used for all those crayons, markers, stickers, paper and coloring books.
Uses for cracked or leaky buckets:
A shower for you or the garden.
Toy and tool organizer.
Any use (above) that doesn't need to be kept air tight.
Fill with sand or cement and use as a post support, as in a flag pole support or the upright of a canopy. Fill with cement, sink a can or pipe slightly larger than the pole all the way to the bottom.
I love buckets!
