A product review- Packaways!

Recently, I received some samples from Packaways. Have you heard of Packaways?

Packaways are a new type of reusable plastic storage box that sets up automatically and knocks back down flat for space-efficient, out of the way storage when not in use. Packaways are ideal for all kinds of applications: home organization, basement or garage clean-up, moving, back to school, kids toys, seasonal clothing storage, sports equipment, etc. All Packaways products are made in USA.

Initially, I was sent the wrong samples but they sent me the right ones promptly. Now, that is great customer service! I received the Tote Packaways and Under Bed Packaways for this review.

The Tote Packaways:

The Tote Packaways, measuring at 18"L x 13"W x 11-3/8"H is lightweight and came with two erasable panels for labeling your items. There is one panel at the front and another panel at the side. I like that you can easily see the labels however you choose to store your box. Isn't that thoughtful and convenient?

Another panel at the side of the box.

I use the Tote Packaways to store my son's seasonal clothing. He has a lot of sweaters and jackets so I am thrilled to free up some space in the dresser.

It collapses flat when not in use. 

The Under Bed Packaways:

The Under Bed Packaways is huge, measuring at 36"L x 24"W x 6"H.

Like the Tote Packaways, it came with two erasable panels, one at the front and one at the side of the box.

I use the Under Bed Packaways to store my bulky sweaters and winter jackets. I have a lot of them so the under bed storage really comes in handy.

The lid lies flat when it's not in use.

The same goes with the box.

Overall, I am pleased with both my Packaways products. Made of tough corrugated plastic, they seemed pretty durable. I also love that they can be easily set up with no tape required and can be reused again and again. (I love anything that can be recyclable!) The added bonus is they can be stored conveniently and efficiently in tight spaces. What's not to love?

*I received this product to review for free and was compensated but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Are you a fan of the Packaways as well? How would you use them if you have one? 


  1. They are reasonable and I believe would be a very handy way to store things...

  2. Sounds interesting and very practical!

  3. I've never heard of these. How awesome that they fold flat when you're not using them!!


Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you taking the time to share with me your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Your comments always, always brighten up my day! So, keep them coming. Have a beautiful day!
