I have had problems corralling the dogs' outdoor toys for a while now, and since we spend a great deal of time outside (all year round, rain or shine) this is an issue. First, I tried a plastic lidded bin. It was *mostly* water proof, but when the lid was on, the dogs couldn't get the toys out, and when the lid was off, it would fill with rain water every time we had wet weather. Then, in some tragic accident the lid got cracked, so the bin became a water collecting nightmare. So, when I saw this soft plastic tote at Target this afternoon, I knew she might solve all of my problems!
