However, not everywhere I wanted to mail to necessarily had a way to 
mail the bucket back out. As a result I had both usps boxes and my 
bucket moving up the country. It would have been nice to not use the

things to me whenever I needed, I felt I had to use it for certain 
replacement items I couldn't readily get hold of otherwise.
