Moving to a new place doesn’t end that day you shift homes. There is an arduous process of unpacking, organising and rearranging once you relocate. Also, most people don’t know what to do with all the cardboard boxes, plastic containers and wrapping paper once their work is done and it is not ideal to leave them lying in the home. So, let us help you with some ideas for ways in which you can reuse or repurpose those moving boxes.
Take help from your packers and movers.
You can ask your packers and movers to take the cardboard boxes with them so that they can reuse them for their next move. Alternatively, they can recycle them along with their left-over cardboard boxes. Also, if you invest in a full-service packing and moving company, they usually bring their own boxes and will eventually take them away after your unpacking is done. This can save you a lot of trouble.
Donate or sell the boxes.
Some people who require cardboard boxes for their relocation may look for buying them economically. List them online on various selling websites or you can donate them to anyone in need. Community centers, public housing units and local businesses may need as many cardboard boxes as they can get their hands on. Find out if there is any need for them near you.
Assign a DIY project for your kids.
What can be better than DIY projects to keep your kids occupied while you unpack? If your kids love arts and crafts, you can give them a challenge and ask them to come up with more creative ways to repurpose or decorate old cardboard boxes. You can find a lot of ideas on Pinterest. Some of our suggestions are,
