Do you want to tackle lawn chores as you go and mow? Create a holster for your mower!

Just take an old plastic bottle or milk jug and secure it to the handle with a zip tie. The holster can hold small hand tools like pruning shears or a weeder; these may be needed as you work your way around the yard.

Also consider tying a plastic shopping bag to the handle to hold the pulled weeds or litter you find as you mow.
