Keep Garden Tools in Oiled Sand

Those old, rusty, should-have-taken-care-of-them gardening tools you used last year stand a fighting chance this season with this ingenious storage solution. Instead of tossing them just anywhere once you're done digging and planting, empty a quart of motor oil into a bucket of sand and mix thoroughly. Now you have a handy place to put your tools, and each time you take them out, the sand will help to keep them sharp and oiled.
