I’ve got a cottage cheese bucket on the sink – doesn’t everybody??
I started out with a Cool-Whip ® container (emptied of its original contents, just so ya know). Why would I have these things on my sink? Well, for sponges, of course! A Cool-Whip ® container makes a great holder, but gets a little water-logged. The drips from the sponges collected in the bottom and made it necessary to empty and clean more often than I wanted to fool with. Being the frugalist that I am, I just couldn’t bring myself to actually spend money on a fancy dish to contain those wet sponges. What about poking holes in the bottom of the Cool-Whip ® container and setting it inside a bigger container? Well, that worked better, but it was kinda ugly – made the sink look cluttered. What about a cover for the outer container? Yes. That would work. So here’s what I did!
