These little crates are about the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. They start out folded flat.
You lift up the handles and the long sides open and then you push the two ends down and out.
They’re great for using in the garden. If I sit them down in the mud, I can hose them right off. I can load them up with dirty veggies, hose those off right in the crate.
You can watch a little video here but if you have a Home Depot near you, they’re $7.88 (or something like that) there. They’re great for carrying things back and forth to the freezers in the shop. I try to get all my meat out for the week at once so I’m not opening and closing those freezers so much, and then I bring it over to the house freezer and keep it in there til I need it. I keep a couple of these crates on top of the freezer so when I’m out there and remember that I haven’t brought meat over for the week, I’ll get out what I need and stick it in one of the crates.
My yarn swift and ball winder is back in the sewing room so I load this little crate up with the yarn I need to wind, take it over to the sewing room, wind it all and bring it back to the house.
I love that they fold completely flat when not in use. Why didn’t I think of inventing this thing?
They’re made of a hard plastic and I have no idea how long they will last but for less than $8, if they last through one summer’s worth of gardening, I’ll be real happy!
