Computers, tvs, ipads – everything we purchase nowdays comes in a box. The question is, how long should you keep those boxes around?
A few questions you’ll need to ask yourself before you toss those boxes:
- Is the warranty still valid? If you still are within the warranty period and you may have to ship the item back to the manufacturer (check your warranty) then you’ll want to keep the box for easier shipping.
- Will you resell the item? If you tend to purchase the latest gadgets, keep the box if you sell your older gadgets. This will increase the amount you get when you resell the item
- Moving soon? Keep the box, it’s easier and safer to move your flat screen tv inside the original box
