Piles of Boxes

When my husband was still in the Navy, we moved constantly so we saved all the boxes from the products that we bought so that  when we move again, we can still use the original boxes.  Now that he is done,  we are getting  rid of all of them.  I emptied our seller from those piles of boxes and   store most of our unused stuff there.
Speaking of boxes,  I remember the big  shoe store  in Ohio,  they do not have wooden  shelves for their display but   they used their empty boxes to make shelves.  It was pretty neat, too bad, I wasn't able to  take a photo of it. Next time when we go there, I would try to take a shot so you can see.

  3. How nice to be finally through with moving. Boxes are great but sure take up space.

  4. You must be pleased to get rid of all those boxes and not to be moving all the time.

    1. Oh I am, at least now we can use our seller for some unused stuff and not the empty boxes.

  5. I haven't moved in 28 years but have lots of empty boxed I've saved thinking they'll come in handy when I move. My daughter used some when she grew up and moved her things but I still have a lot of empty boxes in my attic. I can't decide if I should get rid of them or leave them. Eventually I'll either move or die, and they may come in handy. Can you tell I'm a pack rat. Carver, ABC Wednesday Team

  10. Hello Rose.
    We have relatives overseas to whom we're always sending stuff. Whenever we get a delivery at home, my wife usually breaks the box down & saves it for future use. Like Roger said, the liquor store boxes are good too, because they're usually a lot sturdier for shipping.
    Nice post.
    Thanks for sharing & visiting.
