Martha Stewart suggests keeping your boxes and attaching a cute little note to them stating when their warranty is up, which tells you when to get rid of the box. I personally say ditch the box now and regain your storage space.
My exception to that rule is things that are difficult to move or pack without the original support from the box packaging. Computers often fall into this category or anything that's over a few hundred dollars small appliance or electronic's wise.
How long do you keep your boxes around? Do you trash them almost instantly like I do? Do you sit on them for awhile before you get frustrated and finally toss them? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
