Milk Crates?

11 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can get some of those plastic Milk Crates in the Twin Cities area? Been looking and cannot find any retailers that sell them.

Want to use one for strapping Ice Rods to and tackle storage for my one man flip over. Plan is to bungee cord the crate to the seat as I pull the flip over across the Ice, and then be able to easily remove it when I'm fishing and to bring my stuff into the house after done fishing

I was at the huge thrift store in Sun Ray Center off of 94 in Oakdale last week and they had 2 real milk crates.

Thanks, I do know where that Mall in the Sunray Shopping Center is, but a little to far to drive. Will check out Manards and see what they have.

I was at a major grocery store and the milk guy was doing a delivery and I stopped him and asked him for 1 and he gave me 2 of them

I work at a major retailer and see piles and piles of milk crates on a daily basis. I always laugh at the writing on these things. They all say return to owner...Felony if stolen, yada yada yada. Yet, if you look at them, they're all from different companies. So Kemps may have crates from 50 diffenent distributers grin

Awesome that you were able to get a few from "the source" smile

The Menards Crates are a little longer then the ones from the milk companies, they will still hold a 20# with a little room left over.

You can sometimes find abandoned crates behind restaurants and grocery stores. These are not the ones by the loading dock! In college I seemed to have more crates than actual furniture. I think I only have one or two left...... 15 years of garage sales tend to weed out the crates.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
