I have a bit of a dilemma. Again this year, I did what little bit of Christmas shopping I did online. And it all showed up this week. The post office contrary to its motto, did not deliver mail the week of Christmas. (see “first day of winter” post 12/21)
Now I have a great collection of little boxes. Good boxes! What to do?
I don’t know about you, but I never have the right kind of box when I need it and either I go buy one or delay sending or storing (another dilemma). Which ever the case may be. But if I keep the great boxes where do I keep them?
I could take them to my storage unit in the complex and shove them in with the other boxes. Most of which do have stuff in the. That needs to be rediscovered. Or better yet, I should just call that 1-800-got-junk and have them empty the little room downstairs that I haven’t been in since I moved in 3 years ago. But I know there is some great stuff in there…I just know it! I could take them to Public Storage and let them hang with the sofa that I can’t part with. At least it wouldn’t be paid storage just for boxes!
This happens every time I get a box. I love boxes! Especially if other boxes fit perfectly in the new one! I love it when in one box I can put the old router box, a couple of cell phone boxes and an IPod box and they magically all fit!
I know, I know. I’m going to have to go through them and purge. But I think I’ll keep them around just a few more days!!
One reply on “Boxes”
Keep one of each size. Flatten and slip them underneath your towels in your linen closet. Or, just chuck ’em into recycling. The ones I keep, I rarely use. I just end up taking them to the city recycling center.
