Use Blanket Instead of Wheelbarrow

If you normally use a wheelbarrow to move mulch, dirt, compost or weeds, try an old bed sheet instead. Lay the sheet open on the ground and rake or throw the mulch, dirt or weeds onto it then grab three corners and drag the whole bundle to its new location. Lift up one side of the sheet at the new location and pour out the contents.

This is a great idea. My mom does the same thing with sheets of plastic. I think she just saved the plastic from a new set of mattresses.

I use a 8 X 10 old tarp and it is so much better than a wheelbarrow.
