Bullock's Buzz: Put It Away with Packaways

Put It Away with Packaways

The Reusable, Collapsible Storage Solution


     Holiday decorations, photos, memory books, clothes, dishes, baby clothes, other memorabilia the list goes on and on when it comes to the amount of stuff a person can collect.  Then you need some where and some way to store all of that stuff, and that can be a challenge!   Especially for me since I live in an apartment without much room and close to NO extra storage space. True, I could go to the grocery and get some plain, boring old boxes to use to hold everything, but that is not very attractive and certain insects love cardboard;  not to mention a lot of this stuff means a lot to me and I want to be able to pass it on to my own children some day, so I want to keep it in a sturdy, nice storage box!  This is where Packaways come in handy!

Packaways are great storage solution containers.  They are made from heavy-duty, corrugated plastic and come in a variety of sizes and styles, each available in your choice of bright, cheerful colors.  Each container is lightweight, waterproof and has an innovative wipe-away end panel so you can change the label easily as needed.  Better yet, each Packaway is collapsible and very durable allowing you to use it over and over again!  If you no longer need to use it, simply fold it up and store it until the next time you need it.

There are 3 basic styles available:

Classic- available in 3 sizes – 12, 16 and 21 gallon – comes in white, pink, blue and green.

     - 12 gallon measures 21 1/2”L x 13 3/4”W x 9 3/8”H for $8.75 to $8.95 (depending on color)

     - 16 gallon measures 21 1/2”L x 13 3/4”W x 12 3/4”H for $9.20 to $9.50 )depending on color)

     - 21 gallon measures 21 1/2”L x 13 3/4”W x 16 1/2”H for $9.75 to $10.10 (depending on color)

Tote- measures 18 L x 13 W x 11-3/8 H (internal dimensions) and is available in white, pink, blue or green for $9.50 to $9.85 (depending on color)

Under bed- measures 36 L x 24 W x 6 H (internal dimensions)and is available in white, blue, pink or green for $18.55 to $18.95 (depending on color)

    Collapsible and Reusable

     I had the opportunity to review two of the Classic Packaways, the 16 gallon (pink) and the 21 gallon (blue).  Both are incredibly durable and can hold tons of items.  They were both extremely easy to open up into box form, and have holes for handles, and lids that close.  I love the both the fact that they have wipe away writing panels for labeling and that you can easily break them down when not in use.  Plus, they are so bright and colorful instead of drab and boring! Another bonus, since they all have the same dimensions around the bottom (length and width), they can easily stack on top of each other without forming the ‘Leaning Tower of Boxes’!

Have Wipe Away End Panels For Labeling You Can Change As Needed

     At first I was concerned about the amount of weight they could hold as I wanted to use the smaller one for hardcover books.  I was afraid the bottom might fall out since you don’t use tape to hold it closed, but the way they are designed to fold together on the bottom allows them to hold plenty of weight!

     My opinion?   Whether it’s in your home, an office or a dorm, Packaways are an excellent solution for storage, organization or even moving.  Sturdy, lightweight, waterproof, colorful, stackable, collapsible and reusable, what more could you want? Say goodbye to cardboard boxes, rolls of tape and leaning towers of boxes once and for all!  Get some Packaways!   They can be purchased through the Packaways website where you can also find some great ideas and tips for use.  Be sure to check out the Packaways page on Facebook too!



I received this product for free for the purpose of review.  I was not compensated in any other way, nor am I under contract with this company.  All opinions are my own.

I love the wipe-away labels on the end! So tired of using cardboard boxes from other products and just sticking a new white label on the end whenever the content changes...score!
