Reuse Paper Boxes for Storage

The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Jaime:

I use the free copy paper boxes that are going to be discarded at my workplace to organize various items in my basement and garage instead of buying plastic tubs. They are free, stack nicely, easy to label and easy to replace.

For items like clothing or keepsake items, I do use plastic tubs, but by using the carboard boxes for my other needs I am able to keep my costs down.


I love banana boxes. Whenever I see them at the grocery, I always ask if I can take them. They are crush resistant and hold a ton of stuff! And the kids can build a fort forever with them – BONUS!
