Getting started on My #FallFixUp

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #WeaveMade #FallFixUp http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

It happens every year.

The hot summer days start to cool (ever so slowly this year) and my mind turns to reorganizing the garage, cleaning up the yards, and storing the solar lights, hoses, and other extra outdoor items I won’t need when the snow starts to fall.


After a quick look outside to see just how much I had to store, I realized I wouldn’t really need that much storage space, but I did want a well-constructed and durable tote.  The Rubbermaid Roughneck 18 gallon storage tote was the perfect answer!


When I saw the six 50-75 foot garden hoses and sprinkler heads I have strewn around the front and back yards, I quickly recalled how much of a pain it was to wrap them up and carry them around the house to the garage. Besides getting wet from residual water and dirty from the hose dragging on the ground, the mere weight of lugging them around on my shoulders begged for a better technique.  And then it seemed quite simple – enter the Rubbermaid Roughneck Outdoor 45-gallon trash can.  With wheels and a sturdy handle, I could load all of the hoses up and simply pull them all at once through the yard and to the garage for simple – and dry – winter storage.

With my plan in place, all I needed was a quick trip to my local Home Depot – a.k.a. my favorite get-away! Thanks to Home Depot’s in store low prices and Rubbermaid Roughneck storage totes and outdoor trash cans, my #FallFixUp is going to be much easier this year!


The Rubbermaid Roughneck products were easy to find with a good assortment of sizes and plenty of stock. My daughters were enjoying themselves as well and got a little (early) driving practice in too! While I was making my selection, two other guys were grabbing the totes and 32-gallon outdoor trash cans.  I think it is obvious that everyone is starting to think about their fall clean-up and organizing!

Purchases made and ready to head back home and get started!


The girls love helping me and being outside. We picked everything up in no time!


The hoses fit perfectly in the 45 gallon trash can! With everything neatly set into the tote and trash can, it was time to simply wheel them up to the garage.  No more dripping dirty garden hoses around this guy’s shoulders…


Once in the garage, I just placed them right behind my Mom’s 1967 Mercury Cougar (also ready for storage) and near my Rubbermaid FastTrack (Garage Organization System).   Thanks to Rubbermaid and Home Depot, my #FallFixUp has begun with an easy and low-priced solution to storing my outdoor lawn gear.
