7 Favorites: Classic Utility Buckets

Labour and Wait Housekeepers Galvanized Bucket

I recently bought wire baskets from the Container Store to hold my cleaning products. They are a much-needed upgrade from the plastic caddies I had used before, but, as my efficiency-minded husband pointed out, they’re not as practical because they require both hands to carry. Say what you will about our old, hideous caddies, he complained, but they did the job and they allowed for easy one-handed toting. (Oh, the horror of having to use both hands!)

So, I’ve been eyeing classic utility buckets to replace my replacements. Here are some good one-handled housekeeping buckets that he and I can both agree on.
