Frugal Project #1: Here's the Scoop!
For pennies!! What a savings!
Why Pay More?
A scoop for my pet food bucket was needed. Now, I could easily bus/cab over to the dollar store and pick up a scoop for a buck. You get what you pay for, however. One shove-and-lift into the bucket and that handle would most definitely break off. On the other hand, I could travel to my nearest pet store and pay dearly for a scoop of better but not proven quality. Nah, I don't like either of those options, especially when factoring the cost of transportation to/from those locations.
My empty water jug caught my attention and I thought, "Why not?" and away I went. Within minutes, I have not only got a perfectly good, durable, easy-to-clean scoop, I saved a whole lot of time and money!
You can use this technique for any size plastic bottle/jug to repurpose it for your needs. My only suggestion is to not use the individual sized 'crackly' plastic water bottles - the plastic is too bendy and not as durable.
