Greetings Thrifty Friends,

"You talked about rain barrels but I have been unable to locate any. Where can they be purchased?" -Janet

Janet, I did a little research and was unable to find any retailers where you can walk in and buy one complete and ready to use. That doesn't mean they doesn't exist. Scroll down for a few interesting ideas that a little web surfing turned up.

Keep pinchin' those pennies,

* You can buy prefinished rain barrels online made from food grade plastics or oak and other hardwoods ranging from $90 up to $250.

* There are some cheap ways to obtain your own rain barrel. These are all do-it-yourself projects, but are of a very basic nature. Anyone should be able to complete them with ease.


* Check with your local bottling company. Many of them sell their barrels for under $10. You may even luck out and find one for free. Then all that is left is to buy an inexpensive hardware kit from your local hardware store.

* Many municipal governments offer free rain barrel kits, so check with your municipality to see if they offer something of the sort.
