Every Fall and Spring I go through my children's clothing, pack away what is still in good condition but doesn't fit and throw away what is no longer salvageable. But this fall, I am running into a new challenge. My daughter, who is 6, has started to slow down a bit with her growth. (At least I think she has.) So I don't want to pack clothes away in the garage that "might" fit her next season. However, I don't want an ugly, unstable box sitting in my daughter's closet "just in case" something might fit. And I just didn't have room to keep it all out!
As an answer to my dilemma, Packaways contacted me about their new product that just happens to be a perfect solution to my problem! So I was so excited to be able to try Packaways out!
Packaways are a plastic, reusable storage container. They are really sturdy, and so easy to use. They fold completely flat when not in use and are a breeze to set up and take down.
Many of the sizes come with their own fold in top, so there is no lid to lose and no tape is needed to get these boxes to stay closed!
And by literally just pushing in the bottom, the boxes fold flat again! How simple is that!? So when I don't need to use the boxes, I can tuck them under a bed or in the back of a closet and they won't take up much room!
They come in a variety of sizes and colors and I was anxious to get some good use out of them!
The green one (without a lid) went in my downstairs closet for gloves, hats, scarves and other winter items so the kids could easily find what they needed. When the winter months are over, I plan to quickly disassemble the box for the season.
The white one became storage in my closet for hiding Christmas gifts in it! It is really a huge box and fit a ton of items! Again, once Christmas passes, I can either continue to use this for storage (we have 3 birthdays between January and February in our house) or flatten it down for another day.
The pink one became storage for clothes that "might" fit my daughter next year. And the blue one became storage for clothing that "might" fit my son next year.
These boxes hold a LOT of stuff! They are really nice sized and held a lot of clothing, but also fit perfectly up on our high closet shelves.
My daughters is packed to the brim with clothing and even though it is really heavy, the Packaways box can totally handle it without falling apart! (so much better then a brown packing box!)
These would also be great for any other type of home storage, office storage, moving, seasonal storage etc. And Packaways are made in the USA.
