PackAways~Reusable Storage Boxes (Review)

I don't even want to think about moving again...I have lived in 8 different homes in the past 8 years! Yes, you read that right...we move a lot because we are renting and we always need to upgrade, due to our family getting larger.

I always have a hard time finding free cardboard moving boxes and I refuse to pay for them. Since bugs like to live in them, I don't hold onto them and I have no more use for them once I am settled into my new home. I usually put them on the curb for someone else to take.

Finally, I have found a better solution...reusable multipurpose storage boxes!
I had the opportunity to review a set of two PackAways, a pink and a green.
For more than one reason, I was really excited about these. For one...look at those vibrant colors! I really love the idea of the colors because you can get all pink for one room, basically labeling which box will go to what room in the house. For instance, all pink boxes in Destiny's room, all green boxes for the kitchen, etc. I really love that idea. 

They are very easy to use and require no tape. once you are done using them, you just push the bottom inward and the box closes, folding flat. They also feature two wipe away panels for the use of written labeling~ just use dry erase markers so if you want to use for something else, just wipe and write your next label!
These boxes are very sturdy and compared to cardboard boxes...well, they really don't compare. These are exceptional. They are strong, made from corrugated plastic and can be reused 100's of times!
Since I have not moved since I got them, I have decided to store my unborn baby's clothes/toys in them for now. I will be using them in about 6 months when we move again and I'll be buying a bunch more too!

PackAways come in a couple different sizes and in 4 different colors (white, pink, green and blue)!
There are currently 3 different styles: Classic (pictured above), Tote (no lid) and Under Bed.

Prices range from $8.95 to $18.95. You can purchase at PackAways.com.

You can also find PackAways on facebook!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
