Garbage bin branch storage
Before I mow, I usually go around and pick up fallen twigs and other debris. Inevitably, I miss some and have to stop and pick it up. To solve the problem, I attached a wastebasket to my mower. Now when wrappers, cans and sticks suddenly appear, I can stuff them into my basket and keep moving. — Jared Reiners.
No-spill oil fill
Oiling chain saws and other small gas-powered tools can be downright messy. Pour some oil into a clean squirt- top water bottle. The squirt top makes it easier to control the flow of oil, so it doesn’t spill all over the tool and work area. Make sure to label the bottle so nobody drinks from it. — Donna Meigs.
Plastic bag shoe covers
When I’m working outside and have messy work shoes, I will step into plastic grocery bags and tie the handle loops around my ankles to hold them on. This keeps me from dragging in mud and such when I need to come inside for just a minute or two. It also keeps me out of trouble with my wife! — Lance Wiist.
