I got caught last night smuggling the Wii box into the basement. Spousal conflict ensued, during which I was informed we’ve been using the Wii for over a week, it works fine and we don’t need to keep the box.
A week? Please.
I save boxes. You know, just in case. The Sony Reader’s box is down there. The box for the Playstation 3 the kids got two Christmases ago. The box to my four-year old laptop. The box for the flatscreen TV that’s happily lived up at camp for two years. The three or four year old camcorder’s box. The boxes to our cellphones. The boxes to the cellphones we had before these. And, yes, the boxes to the cellphones we had before those.
And now, the box to the Wii. (The conflict ended as is usual for us—with Mr S saying “Do whatever the hell you want as long as you Shut. Up”.)
How ’bout you guys? Do you save boxes or toss them? If you save them, do you have a time limit or do you let them take up space until you run out of places to put them?
