Getting Organized Has Never Been So Easy -- Thanks to Packaways Reusable Boxes (Review)

PACKAWAYS Dorm Boxes are available in 4 colors and different sizes. The sizes include moving boxes and a large underbed storage size 36L x 24W x 6"H that would be ideal for extra clothes and neat storage where space is tight in dorm rooms. Moving boxes are engineered to erect and collapse instantaneously without tape, these are super for moving kids to and from school. Made from durable polypropylene, these boxes should last the 4 years of moving your children to and from school.

While ideal for this particular application, PACKAWAYS can be used for numerous organizational projects around the home.  Each PACKAWAYS product is low cost and proudly made in the U.S.A.

My Thoughts:

Even though my girls are nowhere near ready to head to college, my neighbor's daughter began her freshman year a couple of weeks ago. As I spoke with my neighbor, memories of when I was heading off to college and backing everything under the sun to take with me, came rushing back.  I remember filling up my parents two cars and having them help me move into the dorms, only to find that I over packed. The shared dorm room was half the size I had expected.  So, I ended up spending the first couple of weeks not only adjusting to the new school and living on my own for the first time, but also had to unpack everything I brought, just to pack up things I could do without to make space. 
Two weeks after arriving at college, I was scrambling to find paper boxes to put all the things I would be bringing home with me, when my parents came to get me for the weekend.  If only I had boxes from PACKAWAYS.  Then, things would have been so easier.

I ended up passing along one of the boxes I was sent to review from PACKAWAYS, for my neighbor's daughter to use.  She loved the bright pink color, which she said stood out on the campus lawn as she unpacked her belongings and set them out on the lawn, waiting to move into her new dorm building.  Another feature besides the boxes durability and ability to assemble in seconds and fold up when not in use, was the fact that it had a unique wipe-away end panel, so you could label what was inside … then erase once the box was emptied and filled with new items.

With bright colors, a variety of sizes, and so many uses with PACKAWAYS boxes, these boxes are a must for families.  I ended up using the other sample to help me transition my oldest daughter out of her shared bedroom with her little sister into her own room.  Even though the rooms were on the same floor, packing and unpacking items from these boxes was a breeze.  And, now that she is settled into her new room, my daughter is using the bright green box we were sent, to store her plush animals.  As for my neighbor's daughter, she is using her PACKAWAYS box to store her laundry in, for easy transport when she comes home on the weekend.
