How many Kindlers keep the pretty box your new friend came in?

After reading someone's post about how nice the box was, some of the replies from other kindlers and myself wanting to keep the box I wondered how many of us do the same.

I kept it for a few weeks and then just looked at it and said, yes, it's pretty but it is big and taking up space. So then I tossed it.

I am working hard on curing some of my pack-rat-itis. I cleaned out my linen closet two weeks ago and I swear, some of the ratty towels I tossed must have been at least 30 years old. And I probably haven't touched them in 20 years!

We have two and the boxes are on the bookshelf like treasured books.  One day they will have to leave when I get around to decluttering that shelf, but for now they are safe.

I can be a bit of a packrat, therefore box saver.  (Nothing like on Oprah last year though.)  I have my pretty box saved inside a plastic box.  Ya know . . . I could put my two iPod Nano boxes in there with the Kindle box too.  Hmmmm.

I have both Kindle boxes. Both still contain the included USB cord and one has an unused wall charger. I'm not keeping them because the box is pretty; I'm keeping them because I'm too lazy to throw them out.

Packaging like that deserves to be saved.  Mine too is next to the iPhone, iPod and Nano boxes

I'll save mind mainly for one thing.  If my Kindle dies and is still under warranty, I'll need the box so i can send it back.  If it dies and is out of warranty, the box will make a nice coffin.

Boy, do I feel better now.  I'm not the only one.  Yes, I kept my box.  Can't bear to throw out such a nice box.  Besides, it protected my baby while she was waiting for me to adopt her.

I keep most boxes for my higher end electronics, cause if I ever upgrade and buy a new one, I will resell the older model to recoup some of my money. Having the box makes it more appealing to the buyers. I also really do like this box, so it was a no brainer for me.

I do think that it is amazing they put so much thought into the design of the box and so apparently little into the the cover... must have been different departments!

Now I am feeling like I really screwed up. Oh well, c'est la vie. They're long gone (I had multiple boxes from multiple Kindle purchases).

I keep too many boxes, but I'm much better than I used to be. Either I will find another use for this box or it could become a wrapping box for birthdays or Christmas....
