I have lost count of how many of these buckets I have purchased over the past 5-6 years. I use them with the lids (sold separately) to store items by category. They keep the contents dry and dust free, and the handle allows me to easily transport them from one place to another. I can stack quite a few on top of each other, which helps me make good use of my rented storage unit where I keep things not needed on a regular basis. They can also be creatively used as a container for a gift that includes a carefully selected assortment of home improvement items.

I purchased Homer 5 gallon buckets to grow 'maters in. I used the orange Homers and found I needed a couple more, so since it was near I bought 2 Lowes white 5 gallon buckets to finish my container garden.
I used the same mixture of Miracle Grow Garden Soil and composted mulch for the 'maters and have regularly fed both brand buckets with the same nutrients.
As can be seen in the photo, the HD Homer buckets produce a shorter but bushier 'mater plant than the Lowes white buckets. It remains to be seen which will produce produce the best 'maters in terms of quantity and quality. ;-)
I rated 4 stars because I had to drill holes in the bottom for drainage. :-( Both companys should add a plastic bag of holes so drilling holes wouldn't be necessary.

Be prepared to be amazed by it's supernatural powers of holding stuff. This magical cauldron is so good that it comes in triplicate. Never again be afraid of losing it in a sea of buckets with it's bright orange skin. Oh the glory of the homer bucket. You will never be the same again.
