A Frugal Father's Day Gift for the Mid-Sized Set

With Father's Day coming up on us all too soon, I've been trying to think of yet another crafty gift that the kids can make for their dad, and Home Depot has come to the rescue.  Thanks to Bargain Briana who let me know that this weekend's kid workshop at Home Depot is a Hardware Sorter.   It is a rectangular box with six compartments.  It is designed to organize hardware, but I can think of several uses:  office supplies, the junk drawer, fishing gear.  I also happen to know one dad who has way too much uniform stuff and always needs a better way to store it all.

The Home Depot Kids Workshops are designed for kids 5 to 12 years old and a parent must remain with them during the workshop.  They run from 9 to 12 on the first Saturday of each month and online preregistration is required.
