Bike baskets are super helpful if you have a few errands to run around town, but they can sometimes be a bit pricey. This one is made from your average curbside mailbox!

Although it might seem silly at first, mailboxes are meant to be weatherproof and take a bit of abuse, so they'll stay shut as you cruise through town and can hold a small grocery list, a trip from the farmer's market, or possibly a few new retail purchases.

It's a fun idea that is practical, inexpensive, and is sure to have your friends congratulating you on your ingenuity. It's up to you to tell them that Martha did it first!
