Those cardboard boxes you procured will come in handy for packing your possessions so your interstate movers can transport them to your new home, but what to do you do after your move? Here are a few tips for using or losing your boxes.
This is an obvious and green solution. Make sure you get a town-approved recycling bin or bring your boxes to a recycling center. To fit them all in the bin, use a box cutter to cut the tape on the bottom so they can be folded up.
Your boxes won't make an attractive addition to your living room, but they can still be practical for organizing your possessions in those out-of-sight spaces like your attic, basement or garage. Use the big boxes to organize your belongings and label them, so next time you're looking for some sports equipment or a piece of camping gear, you'll know where to find them.
HowToGetRidOfStuff.com recommends composting your boxes. Since they're biodegradable, you can simply leave them in a compost pile in your backyard. You may want to cut them up with a box cutter first so they aren't as apparent.
While you may have gotten ample use out of your boxes, the fun has just begun for your furry friends. HowtoGetRidOfStuff.com suggests using your cardboard vessels to create a play house for your pets to explore. Cut rectangular holes in them so your cats have something to wander into and build a fun fort by stacking the boxes.
