Corrugated Boxes

If you’re a collector like myself and are cash conscious then please read what I have to say.

I collect pop culture items: toys, comic books, magazines, diecast, books, etc.

One of my biggest concerns is how do I store all of this stuff?

Specialty containers made specifically for above mentioned items can get also most expensive as the items themselves.

I don’t know about you but I have a limited budget and what money I do have I prefer spending it on collectibles rather than storage containers.

What if I told you that there are alternatives?   Oh sure, you could go to the local office supply or moving store and purchase boxes but even then you’ll pay a premium.

How unnecessary!  Anyone with half a brain knows that if you buy more of a product the unit cost goes down.  And what if the single unit cost is not that expensive in the first place?

Is it really necessary to store most collectibles in acid-free, specially constructed boxes?  Of course not! 

There are items that are exceptions but the bulk of most collectors’ collections are just ‘stuff’.  Why spend a fortune on storage containers?

Recently I contacted Uline: The Shipping Supply Specialists, and inquired about some of their boxes and containers (of all types).

They were kind enough to send me one of their catalogs and after looking through its pages I spotted some corrugated cardboard boxes that looked perfect for my needs.

I selected four boxes sizes (26X10X10, 30X10X10, 36X14X6 and 36X12X6), and this is what I discovered.

The boxes are heavy duty, have easy to fold flaps, are tough and resilient enough to stack and with the aid of a little box tape I had the perfect containers for storing toys, magazines, comic books and other pop culture collectibles.

If you’re a collector and want to spend your money wisely and are looking for good, solid boxes then I highly recommend you contact Uline and check out their products.

There’s so much stuff (cool stuff) in their catalog that you’re sure to find the products best suited for your collector needs.
