5 Favorites: Good-Looking Cardboard Boxes for Long-Term Storage

A quick poll of our editors revealed that those of us lucky enough to have access to an attic storage space have filled it with unattractive plastic storage bins. We know we can do better, but how? The answer: cardboard document boxes. Don’t let the name fool you; they’re true multitaskers and fit our requirements—sturdy, stackable, inexpensive, easy to move around, and much nicer-looking than their plastic counterparts. Here are five favorite options; bookmark this for storing your seasonal and holiday decor.
