We are all about simple here, and well, I needed a way to make my 15 minutes a day garden maintenance even simpler! I was tired of having to get out the garage key, then walking to the garage to get my gloves and tools, and then walking across the yard to the garden to do quick weeding and maintenance every day. It felt like a total waste of my time.
Since our garden is small and we are limited on space, I needed to find an option for storing these simple tools other than a shed. After googling for ideas, I found this gem (original source at end of post)! Simple, inexpensive, and exactly what I needed!
This is such a simple idea and we already had the post on the side of our garden gate so adding a mailbox to it was no big deal. And, best of all, the side of the mailbox was a 'blank slate' that allowed me to be creative :-)
Total cost: $18.99 + tax (cost of mailbox at Home Depot). I already had the paints and everything else we needed! So simple!
Thanks for visiting!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
