What to do with a multitude of storage tub lids??

Most of the bottoms of the storage bins had broken or needed only the bottoms. I have about 30 covers with no matching bottoms.

    Set plants on the lids they will caught the excess water. Use under pet food bowls to keep their food off the floors. Place in front of litter boxes to catch excess cat litter that normally falls off their feet when they step out of their box. Set in the fridge to put bowls on so they don't leave a ring on the fridge shelf.

  • Use one as a shoe/boot tray by the door. The lid can collect any dirt, mud, water.

    Check to see if they are recyclable for any leftover lids once you repurpose all that you can.

    A kids summer program (or similar) which has an arts program could use them .

    Use as handy trays when gardening--to carry those little trays of seedlings to the garden, and to carry away all the weeds and trash when cleaning up.

    They'd also make handy trays when doing chores around the house, like painting. Set your supplies, brushes, etc., down on the lids as you work, and the lids can be easily rinsed off for another time.

    I'd put a couple down in the garden for stepping stones or to keep weeds under control. You could also rig the larger one for a potting station. Otherwise, recycle.
