    Cut in half and make fire pit or planters or little Fountain ponds if they're clean as she could use them to collect rainwater for watering ( depending on what state you live in because ridiculously it may be against the law or you may have to pay to use it. Insert eye-roll here)

    You could again cut him and feel bottom with cement for bases of mailboxes or fence posts or decorations flagpoles anyting. Or you can scrap them for money or post them on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist somebody might buy them

      Thank you very much a lot of good ideas there. I mostly like the pond/fountain idea. I don't know about a law collecting rain water but I live in Florida. Thank you muchly mam.

      Thank you Kmdreamer for responding. My husband is picking the barrels up today and then I'll know better what I can use them for. But I live in Florida out in a wooded area, if you know Florida then you know about the roaches and spiders. So the storage idea seems to be a smarter idea. I just moved here and had nooo idea. If so I might not have came here. Thank you muchly

    Can't use for rainwater, and the odor would probably permeate anything put in them.

    What was previously stored in these drums? Chemicals? That will limit what you can do with them.

    Agree with others who said that if the drums previously contained oil, gasoline or chemicals, they will not be suitable for storing items, or rainwater collection.
