I have some of these empty Tidy Cats cat litter containers laying around. What good use can I put them to?

I use them for Ice melter/Rock Salt in the winter time. I buy bags of Salt, and put it in the containers.

Good brass bucket.

Good call, I can put 1 out on the range, maybe hang it from the shooting bench I just built.

Also good for storing tumbling material like walnut or corn cob

Brass buckets. Dry storage containers.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:31:32 AM EST
If I had them I would wash them out and fill them with brass. I doubt though if I will ever have empty cat litter containers. I hate the bastards.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:33:52 AM EST
Car wash buckets, misc shooting stuff that would otherwise roll around in my truck.

Tool buckets.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:40:33 AM EST
I use them to store things in my garage & shed.
Rope, Bungee cords, bird food etc. It keeps the Mice from chewing everything up.
They will also hold a shitload of brass.

When you need a bucket you need a bucket
Plastic gold

I use them for storing left over fertilizer and grass seed.

I also filled them with gravel for weight on my pull behind core aerator -

the gravel filled ones also go in the front end loader on the tractor when bush hogging for counter balance on my hills

I've got a few dozen of them full of 12ga hulls, 9mm, .45ACP, 6.5x55 and .308/.30-06 brass out in the garage. They also work well for storing lead bullets in bulk.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:51:02 AM EST
I put charcoal and smoking chips in them.Also golf balls for the gun range.

Mine are full of used brass that I'm saving.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:56:07 AM EST
We use something similar for quenching lead cast bullets. Put a towel at the bottom and fill it up with water
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:57:30 AM EST
use them to trap raccoons or mice
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:57:36 AM EST
Fill with water.
Shoot with AK.
Put both in trash can.
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:58:19 AM EST
After cleaning I use them for preps, Vacuum sealed foods fit great, they can be stacked easily and neatly, take up very little room and are numbered so I can keep track of the contents in a note book.

Bucket Wall

The guy that did this lives in my town. It turned out pretty nicely after he finished it and stuccoed it.

Store charcoal, wood chips, take them camping as a good disposable bucket.

They make fine targets too.

This, also there it's a guy at work that made a set of panniers for his bike with then.


I have lost count of how many times I have seen this re-purpose across the country. It must be in poor bike commuter or cyclo-tourist 101.

The buckets are usually recyclable too, when they finally do die.

Rock salt?

Edit because I did not read.....

Rock salt for your trunk.
550 cord with the strand pulled through a hole in the lid.

find some sand or pea gravel along the road somewhere and fill them with sand for weight or if you get stuck, dry is best

You're in MT, you don't even have neighbors. It looked a little better once he got the concrete on it. At first though, it reminded me of Africa.
