My parents are self-employed at a company that ships all of their business. Because of this, they always have various styles of boxes on hand to fit whatever need that they have. Growing up around this business, I was able to play with tons of boxes, making things from forts to “kickboxes”. These days, I take advantage of this mainly when we move. When my family moved to a different city a few years ago, we discovered the wonderful boxy goodness that is a waxed chicken box.
Ok, so it’s a box that is designed to get frozen chicken to its end point. I know. Not glamorous at all, but it works for us.
These boxes are just the right size for me to carry, have handles on each end, have a sturdy lid, and are waxed to prevent leaking of foods and whatnot. They are PERFECT for our moving needs. I know that they are not very environmentally friendly, but in our defense, we try to pass them along after we are done so someone else can reuse them. They don’t require any tape for assembly, and if you want to use masking tape to mark them, it peels right off so you can reuse the box. I find that these boxes are extremely sturdy and fit our moving needs exceptionally well.
That’s what works for me! What works for you? Head on over to Rocks in My Dryer to find other tips and tricks that might just work for you!
