    They make awesome drawer organizers/dividers. Just separate the top of each box from the bottom and put them both in a drawer with the open side facing up. Repeat with more boxes until the drawer is divided into many compartments. You might need to rearrange them a few times to get a good fit.

    I used my old box "collection" to organize numerous iPod/iPhone power supplies, cables, adapters, earbuds, etc., all in one large drawer.

    Yes.

    I find it easier to sell a phone if you have the original box (and untouched accessories).

    I've amassed so many accessories that I generally sell the box EarPods and power brick. Been getting $30 shipped. Not a terrible return IMO.

    I always keep my phone boxes because I usually resell them to fund a new phone.

    Do not save box long for things like the new iMac but once I know they are a keeper, that box is gone. Keep all my iPhone boxes, they take little space. I give them away with the old phone to mainly family or good friends who could not or would not spend that much on an iPhone.

    I kept the box for my 5 in case I ever wanted to sell it, but almost 3 years later I still use the phone.

    This is what I do. I never have more than two phone boxes at any time. No reason to keep them otherwise.

    Same here.
    Price is way better when sold with original box and unused accessories.
    Sometimes the difference is around $50 or so. Don't throw away if you intend to sell it eventually.
