I got a couple of computers for the kids They come in these biggo boxes. Been hesitant to throw them away because if I ever need to return them for srevice they will come in handy.

So do you guys throw away your boxes?have you really ever needed to use them to send back stuff.

Merry Christmas

Put them in the neighbor's trash. That way if someone goes through the trash to see what new stuff there might be to steal, they break into the wrong house.

You might think I'm being mean in doing that to my neighbor, but he is the living definition of redneck. He lives for this sort of thing.

I use them to send out other gifts through out the year . Nothing like getting a sweater and rocks in a TV box .

Fire! Burn them! I usually douse them with lighter fluid or charcoal lighter first.

I use em to help get the tire pile lit. I am trying to hasten global warming, I'm tired of winter and cant convince the wife to move back to Atlanta.

I do the same thing. My brother got a gift certificate in a box that a guitar came in.

+1. The big boxes also make cheap IPSC silhouette targets as well.

Can it ship a rifle? If so keep it

I throw mine in the attic for about a year. Then when Im up there throwing more crap for new electornics I thorw out the old ones. Your right though keeping the boxes makes more sense if you have the room.

I keep them for when I have to pack up and PCS to another base.
