Review: Packaways Storage Boxes

Packaways storage boxes are the perfect box for college students, those who are moving, or those who are looking for sturdy storage options. Packaways fold flat when not in use, and easily are turned back into boxes. If you haven’t read it yet, click here to view the ‘Review Preview’ for these storage boxes.

Continue on to read my review, and see pictures of one of the storage boxes I received!

For review, I received four boxes in three different sizes. The picture below are of the pink, 21 gallon box I received. Here are pictures of that box, from all angles, because I figured why not.

This is the box when it is folded down. I took the picture with the box leaning against the balcony fence, but when folded flat, the boxes take up only an inch or two of vertical space, perfect for storing under the bed.

This is what the box looks like when it’s in box formation, with the top flaps closed down. Putting the box together, including the top flaps takes like 30 seconds. The take down back to flat formation takes 2 seconds, literally, I timed it.

As I mentioned in my ‘Review Preview’, I used these boxes when I was moving into my apartment this year for school with my sister. I was able to fit all of my hanging clothes in the box pictured above. I don’t have a ton of hanging clothes, but I have a fair amount. I was impressed with how much the box was able to hold. In the other three boxes I was able to fit a lot of my personal items, my Mom packed up most of our kitchen supplies in another, and I put a bunch of folded clothes in the remaining box. I have to say, this move was made a lot easier by having these boxes. Seriously.

The boxes are all sturdy, the handle holes worked as expected, the dry erase label square of the end and side of the boxes is very nice for labeling and relabeling. The boxes come in pink, green, blue and white. I received a pink box, a green box and two blue boxes.

I would strongly suggest these boxes to any students moving out of dorms at the end of the year, parents preparing to send their kids off to school this coming year, anyone moving to a new place, or someone who just wants to have some sturdy storage boxes in the garage. (Biggest run on sentence award goes to me.)
