I stick most of them in the recycling bin; cardboard, plastic wraps, they all go in the recycling basket in my room. If the wrapping is a sturdy cardboard box that looks nice, I keep it for storing my jewellery.

right now im keeping all my boxes because im going to be moving soon and i would feel so much better knowing everything is protected just a little bit more and it will be easier to pack. but once i move and get settled im going to throw away all boxes since im already running out of space.

Well after I’ve photographed any packaging (if neccessary) for my blog I put it in the recycling bin. I prefer things that don’t have any packaging. While it’s nice to get a pretty box it’s also quite wasteful.

I tend to keep the packaging, if it’s pretty 🙂 I’ve never thrown away chanel’s packaging, because I love it so much 🙂

hehehe very very quickly. lol
what I do with regular packaging is throw it away. But when its something with special packaging (hello kitty, dame edna)on the boxes, I cut out the main design and I have an inspiration wall it reminds me of past collections and makes me smile!

I keep every single perfume box I acquire (I like them!) but other beauty packaging is thrown away quickly. I try to recycle packaging whenever possible but I do not reuse any jars or tubes.

i like keeping the boxes so my make-up still looks new although it causes quite a clutter! i may get rid of the boxes soon!

I always save it and I really regret it because then its just clutter. I think there must be SOME way to recycle it and so I painted some MAC boxes and put glitter on them. Now I have glittery clutter….I like your idea better, just throw it away.

I don’t what it is, but I’m such a hoarder. I keep all the boxes for everything and there’s no rhyme or reason to why. I need intervention!

As well as you I throw boxes away among with papers so they can be recycle. I back to Mac whatever I can and use all those samples containers they give me. I consider recycling really important, why waste, right?

If I shop for a product at the mall and then stop for coffee, etc. I have been known to throw packaging away right there!

I dispose of the outer packaging as soon as I start using a product, and of the actual product packaging when I’ve finished a product. I sometimes keep larger containers like moisturizer pots to store small things like q-tips or bobby pins.

Hi there!
I usually collect the boxes until it piles up a bit and discard then if i dont need. (mostly for the prices or ingredients and such) it does pile quick 🙁
But definitely totally reuse packaging like jars – i am from india, the land of reuse where we accumulate a lot and never tire of it 😉 and it hurts to throw away 🙂
