PACKAWAYS! Review and Giveaway, Ends 12/11/12



For moving, storage, clutter, toys... whatever the use, we all need boxes!  If you're like me, you DON'T want to use paper cardboard boxes.  If they get wet or over-filled, they just breakdown.  Don't even think about re-using them!  Oh... and really... they just smell bad.  ICK.

I prefer re-usable boxes for storing my things.  Especially those boxes that can be easily dismantled and stored when not in use.





Not long ago, I discovered Packaways Reusable Plastic Storage Boxes.  I am so glad I did!  I wish I'd had them when Lizz moved off to college!

MADE IN THE USA!

PackAways™ were invented and are manufactured in the U.S.A. by Technology Container Corp. (TCC), a Massachusetts-based company with plants in Worcester, MA and Desoto, TX. All of our products are made exclusively in the U.S.A., employing American workers and suppliers. We are the largest plastic box manufacturer in the world with more plastic box capacity than the rest of North America combined.


Why should you use Packaways?
COLLAPSIBLE, OUT OF THE WAY STORAGE: PackAways are the only corrugated plastic storage boxes that easily collapse down flat for efficient, out of the way storage when not in use.
EASY, NO TAPE SETUP: Simply press opposing corners together to instantly set up your PackAways. The bottom of the box automatically folds into place. The top interlocks to close, then can be opened and closed again and again. No more taping yourself to your storage!
WIPE AWAY MARKING PANELS: PackAways have two marking areas for identification of contents. When you are ready to reuse for another purpose, or if you misspelled your own child’s name, simply erase and re-label.
COLOR YOUR WORLD: Further organize your items by color or match your d├ęcor with PackAways brilliant Blue, Pink, Green and Translucent corrugated plastic storage boxes.
DURABLE: PackAways are ultra durable and can be erected, filled, stored, emptied and knocked down flat hundreds of times. And trust us…you will!
COMMON FOOTPRINT: Even if you purchase different sizes, the Classic PackAways have the same footprint (length and width), only the height varies in the sizes. So they stack neatly, efficiently and safely on top of one another. No more leaning towers.

Mike and I are hoping to move soon and I can't tell you how much these reusable, stackable, durable boxes will help us.  How cool that you can use an erasable marker on them, too.  Yep -- when the move is over (or even still in-progress), just wipe off the label and use the box for a different room or item.  That's a great help when moving!

I am also delighted with the various colours available.  I can use Pink for me, Blue for Mike, Green for Kitchen, and White for Household!  Love it.  Makes unpacking so much faster and easier.

The Classic Packaway is available in  12, 16, and 21 Gallon sizes.







The Tote is available in a single size as is the Underbed Packaway.





Colours available are White, Blue, Pink, and Green.







I have two of the Packaway Classics and I absolutely love them.  I've got my assorted Needlework Supplies tucked into the Pink box (When I move -- my stitching goes with ME. Mike will fill up his box with... whatever men have to have...

I plan on getting a several of the Underbed Packaways after the first of the year.  They'll be perfect for Lizz and my Mom.

I probably could use all of the boxes; but I think I would use the Tote size the most to store decorations we have for different holidays, Halloween, Easter, etc.

I could use any of them frankly because we are rearranging the basement. Cleaning out the old and bringing in the new. But underbed storage is very important so i'd like to try the underbed boxes.

Stephanie O'Day said...

I really would like the under the bed storage containers! Being able to hide things under the beds ensures that no one has to see it and that it is out of the way. What better way to take up wasted space than to be able to store things you won't need for a while!
