DIY emergency (or camping) toilet. Toilet seat on cut-away milk crate, five gallon bucket, and old table legs (or scrap wood) held on with plastic zip ties.

How to Build a Nomadic Farming Container: The open source wisdom on the topic suggests that the ubiquitous milk crate is the best container to use. These crates are inexpensive, lightweight, easily moved (they have handles), stackable, and allow drainage/aeration. They are also easy to convert into a planter by simply lining them with landscape fabric (ten dollars of fabric + sewing can convert 24 crates into planters) or (in a pinch) a plastic bag with holes.

Root Crop Storage Bin- root veggies like carrots and beets will stay fresh all winter, just fill with layers of damp sand or sawdust, alternating with layers of carrots or beets, and put in a cool, dark place. Potatoes, turnips and squash can go right in the bin without sand. This is the site for buying one, but I think it can easily be made from a plastic milk crate and burlap.
