The Drink Tub

I love the drink tub. You know the one. You can get them everywhere. Target has their drink tubs from $8-$25. They are super handy.

They have many uses.

• Put your drinks in them for a party and ice them down. Handy & cute. Even toddlers can get a drink out of these.

• Put snack bags for sporting events, when you are then snack parent at the next soccer/football/whatever game.

• Use for bobbing for apples at your next Halloween bash.

• Put all your picnic supplies in them for a trip out to the park.

• Put all your supplies for your next meeting and use as a tote for carrying.

• At your next kids party put all your goodie bags in it and bring out at the end of
the party. Keeps goodies bags from tipping over.

• Turn upside down and cover with table cloth to use as a lift to set your food trays on different levels at the buffet of your next dinner party.

• Throw all the toys in, when your unexpected company arrives and shove it in the closet.

• Drill a couple of holes in the bottom of your METAL drink tub. Fill with fire resistant glass rocks and then put a two gel fuel canisters in the drink tub. Set it outside for your very own small fire pit. Make sure the gel fuel canisters do not touch the side of the METAL drink tub. (do not use a plastic drink tub, or it will melt). And be careful and put it in a safe place, outdoors and away from children and pets!!!

• Drill a couple of holes in the bottom of your drink tub for drainage and use as a planter.

OK. So, there are just a few ideas. Now, go out and enjoy your drink tub!!!
