This question already has an answer here:

For some reason I keep my old Lego boxes (since the 1980s), and my son's old Lego packages. Because they are quite large, they take up a lot of space in my house, even if they are put one into another. I suppose I am not the only one (see this comment) who keeps them.

I actually don't know why I store them &emdash; maybe some psychological issue &emdash; but how can I effectively store old packages? And those of you who keep old boxes, do you ever display them, or browse them? Or do you just keep them?

Hi Voitcus, have you seen this question: How do I keep LEGO boxes looking thier best for as long as possible? –  Zhaph - Ben Duguid Jul 9 '13 at 8:52
    
What do you mean in your last question with "return to your packaging"? –  Joubarc Jul 9 '13 at 8:55
    
@Joubarc just take it off the closet and watch :) But I'm sorry, I haven't found this in archive, so I will remove this question soon. –  Voitcus Jul 9 '13 at 8:58

Well there is two ways the easy way to throw them into a bucket or you can first separate them into groups either by size,color,set,etc. than put each group of separated Lego's in some sort of container such as a bucket box or back. I think that a bucket is the best idea because it is more safe and can be put anywhere of size

I was asking about packages (boxes), not bricks –  Voitcus Aug 1 '13 at 6:13

Well I used to keep mine as well. One thing I found very good was to take a razor or a box cutter and cut the front and backs off! this may seem obvious or defeat the purpose, but it made them easier to store. I would stack them all and slip them on a shelf or under my bed to keep them flat. This proved to be a very effective solution. Also, you could try to collapse them at the ends to have them take up less room as well.
