Until either it's too late to return it to the store or the box falls out of the closet and hits me on the head, whichever comes first. :)

That's me. My wife usually throws them away sometimes after that and I discover it a few months later. :D

I think this thread (which is good by the way), should turn into a "show a picture of your oldest box."

Usually until I get new products lol. Definitely not a good thing to keep boxes too long. You don't want silverfish or anything running around after all.

Would love to build a box-fort though. Maybe this is why I don't work in a warehouse...

As long as it takes me to fold it and put it into my recycling bin :p

Pretty much this as I live by myself and don't want a ton of boxes crowding my apartment.
