Lugging a heavy bag of seeds or lawn fertiliser out to the footpath is no fun, and it’s tough to spread evenly with a shovel or cup.

You get a clump in one spot and none in another, so you’re wasting both time and product.

Poke 1/4-in. holes in the lid and fill it with sand, cat litter, seeds, or a mix of whatever you want and shake away! — Tony DeMarse.
