Really, where have these been all my life?
We use a lot of storage boxes. For storing. For toys. For play. A lot. Of course they don't last very long at all. Having a toddler and a puppy in the house they get ripped quite easily, bent, torn and they just plain fall apart.
Then along comes PackAways. The reusable plastic multi-purpose storage boxes that are available in multiple colors and sizes. For a product review I was sent the bright pink one that is 12 gallons and the neon green one that is 21 gallons.
These are so easy to use. You just open it up and press on the bottom and it snaps right into place. To close it, you just do the reverse, press on the bottom and they close right up. Even have directions on the bottom to make it even simpler. When you don't need to have them in use, they just close flat for easy storage until the next time you need them.
So, what can you use them for? They have many uses. Kids toys. Clothes storage. Moving. Packing up items to send with your college student. Pack away seasonal items. Christmas/holiday decorations and so much more. With the different colors you can even color code them. Pack all your clothes in the pink ones, all your seasonal items in the green ones, etc, etc, etc. So many uses. So easy to use. Also, and I love this idea. You can write on the boxes and when you need to change up what is on them you can just wipe it off. That, my friends, rocks. If you are like me, with things stored in boxes you have what is in them numerous times. Things scribbled out, new things wrote. This way, no scribbling. Wipe it off, write something new.
Pros ~ These are durable and can be used for numerous things. Love the different colors and the many different sizes that you can get. With the corrugated plastic, your items will be protected from water and the humidity. They are priced pretty reasonably considering that you can probably use these 100's of times (with normal usage) before you would have to replace them. Can't say that about regular boxes.
Cons ~ I didn't find any cons for these items. I love them and I think that you'll love them too.
