One of the things he has always done is use a milk bottle for a peg bucket. Its cheap (free really), quick to make and does the job perfectly...
Here's what he does...
He simply uses a pair of scissors to cut the bottle into this shape.
Then cuts a bit out of the back of the handle so it will hang on the line.
And it is done! Simple, easy and green!
A 3 litre bottle hold enough pegs for a wash in our house and the hole is big enough to get your hand in an out of with a fist full of pegs easily. The other great thing is that it sits flat when you want to put it down and is still easy to get the pegs in and out of. If you dont leave it on the line (and he doesnt) it will sit easily on the laundry shelf or on the table...
You can make one for every day of the week if you go through enough milk!
We use wooden pegs so that when they break (as they always do) we can just chuck 'em into the greenery and they can decompose in there with out looking like rubbish, as the plastic ones do.
Green-ness: 5/5 Totally green! re purposed, recycled and useful!
Frugal-ness: 5/5 How frugal is free?
Time cost: 1 minute! Takes longer to rinse the bottle than to remodel it!
Skill level: Cutting without the pasting!
Fun -ness:More fun if some else is doing the washing of course!
