I was asked on the live stream the other night if I keep the boxes when I buy new electronics or gadgets. I keep them for a while, to make sure that there are no issues that would cause the item to need to be returned.
I also hang on to them if I know I might resell the item later. For instance, I kept the box and all of the inner packaging for my iPhone 3GS. When I gave that to Kat a few months ago, I was able to safely pack it away in its original box prior to shipping. If you’re going to sell something, you’ll always get a better price if you have the original packaging.
I have a storage room that I keep the boxes in, and I likely need to clean it out to recycle stuff. There are very few boxes I will ever use again. There’s no point in holding on to all of them.
Do you keep your boxes?
