Packaways Reusable Plastic Storage Boxes - Review!

Earlier this week I had a knock at the door and a delivery left hiding on my doorstep – well, I say “hiding” but it was actually taking up ALL of the space on my front porch and I was intrigued to find out what it was!

Excitedly, I tore open the package and, much to my delight, I discovered that the contents of which were 2 flat packed boxes from Packaways!

Packaways are a wonderful concept, which takes on the idea of a regular box and makes it several times more durable, longer lasting and in bright, delightful colors and sizes!

The boxes are HUGE, but no matter how big they come, they are just as easy as the one another to pop open and use 20 seconds out of the packaging!

Literally, you just push the sides of the box and click in the bottom flap, immediately making the box sturdy and...VOILA! Your box is ready to be used for storage, moving or a splash of color!

I had the pleasure of trying out 2 of the larger boxes in green and pink (they also come in blue!) and have been able to tidy up my work space considerably while using them! Before hand I had a plethora of items strewn around my room for ebay and such, which were just getting messier and messier until the arrival of the boxes – PERFECT!

The boxes are wonderfully simple to errect and hold their weight very well. There are handles in the sids so you won’t harm yourself while lifting them and they certainly do brighten up your room! The can be kept in plain sight or stored in the basement and DO come with a spot of space on them on which you can write with non-permenent marker in order to remember the items that that one particular box contains! When you're done storing one item, and switch it out for another, simply wipe off the label and write on a new one! Easy as pie!

This time 2 weeks ago I had no storage at all and this week I am considering buying more Packaways simply because they are a breath of fresh air and work wonders for the overal look of my current space!

I found these to be very “happy” little boxes, which folded out in seconds with plenty of space to keep anything from clothes and accessories to eBay or pantry items, without having to cart them around or keep them out in an unorganized mess! It should perhaps also be noted that just like any regular box, they make wonderful “houses” and playthings for tots and will leave no dull moments - BUT! Please use these boxes responsibly! Thank you!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Very nice. I could use a few 100 of these lol I like the colors. Remember those cardboard dressers they used to have all over? Whatever happened to those?

I love these, I need these! They are huge too! Perfect for living in an apartment and needing storage!

Birbitt Thinks said...

yay! Durable, and colorful storage boxes, just what I need! As a homeschooling mom I can always use storage boxes to store their work from the year.

BirBitt thinks like I do!! All I could think of was all of my homeschool materials having a nice, neat home in those huge storage boxes!!

I think you have some really cute cargo in the one picture, though! :)

Those are a great idea. You have a box if you need one and if you don't you can flatten it and put away for later!
