I see that many of use the large flat pizza boxes for storing our UFO's. The computer tech at our school was unloading seveval new keyboards, and had a stack (yep - 10-12) of the boxes just on the floor. I thought that they were the perfect size....and they are! About 2 x 12 x 24. Man, am I gonna be organized now!!!!

I have used the pizza boxes, but I haven't used computer keyboard boxes. Great idea! Now if I could just find someone who would have several of them, I would be all set!

I used to use the pizza boxes for my students' projects. You can buy them in bulk at GFS. I don't remember how many come in a package, but I do know that they come in different sizes. ;)

I went into my local pizza place and asked for new unused ones. I got the 14" and they are just perfect for 12" blocks. He charged me a quarter a box all put together and ready to use. I love them.

That sounds like a great size to use. I wonder if the big computer stores would have any to give away.

I tried getting some of the pizza boxes but they wanted to charge me the price of a pizza! Needless to say I didn't buy any.
