Even though single wall boxesare usually a fixture in most of our homes, they don’t have to be very fancy in order to carry out their intended use effectively. Have you ever sat down and asked yourself what use or what part does ornamentation on these packaging supplies play as far as the transportation of your items is concerned? Will being fancy enable your packaging supplies reach their intended destinations faster? Or will the fact that these supplies or cartons are fancy make moving companies charge you any less for their services?

The above questions you will no doubt reveal to you the hard, undisputable fact that sometimes beauty and elegance add no value to packing materials.

Boxes offer a superb way of transporting and holding small and big items for storage. In addition to this, they are very adaptable as they can be easily employed for a myriad of other purposes. These purposes can range from crafts to home decoration to useful everyday items. The only thing that plays a part in the determination of what kind of usage your boxes will have are the kinds of material used in their construction and the exact requirements of the person using it. It’s no wonder that in some Asian countries such as India and Bangladesh, during the seasonal Monsoon rains, some home owners are known to spread these packaging materials, particularly those with plastic linings, on their floors. This in turn produces the desired effect of preventing water from outside leaking into the floors of their houses. This simple ingenuity by these people from these two countries strengthens the fact that sometimes these packaging materials do not have to be fancy in order to fulfil their intended purposes.

To many people who have grown used to the notion that boxes can only be used for practices such as moving houses or offices, storing items, construction of inexpensive toys for your children and in some other circumstances as garbage bins; they should understand that these packaging materials can also be used in the garden as mulch for your young plants. When it comes to such an undertaking you do not have to be a genius to come to the conclusion that this exercise does not require these packaging supplies to be fancy as their elegance will add nothing to the well being of your plants
