Cut the spigot top off of 2 gallon square water containers, cutting straight across. Do not cut into the handle. Under the handle, you can write names or labels with magic marker, if you like. Put these up on closet shelves, bookcases, or under beds. They are perfect to put underwear, bras, socks, etc. in for extra "drawer" space. They are also good for small toys, crayolas, and coloring books too. Use them for mop buckets, outside buckets and especially in the garage on shelves. Great for families with lots of kids.

If you are going to have kids using these, you might want to got around the top edge with either tape (duct tape or whatever) or grind the edge down a tad with a dremel-type tool, to remove the very sharp edge. So not fun to slice your hand open while trying to remove something from the container. Great idea, by the way!
