    I usually take the top parts of the box off and then cover the box in contact paper. Then I put dvd's in some boxes and books in others. I then stack the covered boxes on a shelf.

    2.When painting walls, woodwork - keep your cans brushes in these , to prevent spilling.
    3.When transporting plants in the car. If the soil spills out, just throw the box out.
    4. Keep a box in a spare room, basement. Throw items that you want to donate to charity in there as you find them, try the outfit on and think no...etc. When it fill sup put it in the car and out it goes.
    5. Save nice clean ones. When you are taking a dish of food to a destination, place it in a box. That way, anything happens, it will spill out in the box, not your car.
