There are a few times when I like to line my buckets with newspaper:
- When using it for a compost bucket
- When storing sharp things that can scratch the insides
- When harvesting food
This method works so well that you can turn the bucket upside-down and shake it, and the newspaper will not fall out!
Tip: I use broadsheet sized newspaper in this example, but when I can get my hands on tabloid-sized newspaper, I prefer to use its taller size for the sides, while using the broadsheet for the bottom only.
