The Many Uses of Large Cardboard Boxes

Large cardboard boxes come in handy on so many different occasions. An obvious one is when you are planning a big move.  It makes no sense to have 500 small boxes when you can condense your item into 50 large cardboard boxes.  You can also use larger boxes for storing items in storage units if you are inclined to make rash decisions like my husband and I and move into a house with half as much square feet as you are used to.  You can also use them to ship big items such as that large puppy stuffed animal your new nephew has been wanting or even a big box of hand me downs to your skinnier little sister.

Besides these more widely used methods of utilizing large cardboard boxes, you can get even more creative.  The other day I drove past a lemonade stand.  First of all, if you are the type of person who looks the other way and keeps going past the lemonade stand, shame on you.  We were all small children at one point and remember what it was like to think $5 was a ton of money.  And how exciting it was to serve random people refreshing lemon beverages on a hot summer day.  I may or may not be the person who drives past lemonade stands, but if I do it is because I don’t have cash on me, so there.  Anyways, the lemonade stand was made out of a cardboard box! I thought it was genius. The kids had it tilted over so they could store their supplies in the box and use the top side of it to serve the lemonade.  Genius I tell you. My cousin also literally created a television out of a box when he was a kid and would practice ‘broadcasting the news’.  Cats also love empty large cardboard boxes, so grab little Whiskers and set him in front of the open box of opportunities and he will feel like a kid at an amusement park.


Whatever your use is for a large cardboard box, make sure you are using one that is made from high quality materials and do not spend an arm and a leg to do so.  PackagingSupplies.com is an online retailer featuring over 5,000 unique and hard to find packing and shipping supplies.  They just so happen to specialize in the area of large cardboard boxes, and you can choose from multiple types, colors, and sizes.  Whether you are moving, selling lemonade, or own a furry feline, you do not have to break the bank to get high quality cardboard boxes.
