    It used to be the collapsing bucket, but not anymore. For a few years now we've been using the versatile flexi trugs and now wouldn't leave home without at least 3 in the locker. They are just so handy. And the bonus is 3 take up no more space than 1 and they can pack down small, are robust and can be crushed into full lockers. So what do we use them for.

    • They are a great watering can. With the handles together you have a small pouring spout.
    • They an be used to take dirty crockery to the wash up
    • Laundry to the laundry room
    • They can be used to wash up
    • For washing the van
    • Soaking your feet
    • Washing fruit and veg
    • Washing clothes in one, rinsing in the other
    • Half filled with water and a bag of ice they are a great beer cooler
    • Cooling down hot pets
    I'm sure there are even more uses. Go and put a couple in the van today :)

    We started with brewing bins and moved on to them. See Here. We don't bother with the wringer usually now though.

    My most useful thing in the garage of the van is a rugby ball.

    I often go out for a throw around with the kids when its time to do the washing up(y)
