I save a few of them for school projects for my son and grandkids. Also since my son has big feet - so big shoe boxes..., I keep my craft paint bottles in them, cover them with colorful paper and label them on the side so I know what is in it before taking them all out of the closet where they are stored...
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.

I take mine to the recycle center along with my cardboard, I have gone to plastic shioe boxes for storage and I pick them up whenever I see them at the thrift store. Don't really get many cardboard ones any longer as DH and I usually buy our shoes at Walmart or Kmart so no shoe boxes usually even come home with us any longer. I like being able to see through the plastic ones stacked away also.

I like them in my drawers to divide socks and jocks etc.
The boys shoe boxes are fantastic as they have ginormous
feet and therefore big shoe boxes.

I use plastic too and recycle the boxes through the city. I try really hard to keep cardboard out of the house as bugs, spiders, etc. like them.

I have a school aged kid still so they are saved for projects during the year. She only gets 2-3 pairs over a years time so we haven't had to deal with storing them too long.
