when i was a youngun i would pull the pull out part of the box completely off and tape saurian wrap across the hole, then cut a door on both sides and the back, and pretend it was a subway. it entertained me for hours

*posting because I'm interested in any ideas that come up too*
This will probably not be helpful to you, but at my house we drink an awful lot of mountain dew.  I usually buy the fridge pack and then when its empty I buy the 24 can case and refill the fridge pack, because the fridge packs are handy, but the 24 can cases are usually cheaper.

Hah!  That is pretty neat.

I cut one diagonally and made a ramp for my son to roll his cars down.  He destroyed it after a few days, but it was cool while it lasted.

I store grocery bags in them to keep the mountains of grocery bags under control.

Not sure how well this would work cause I just came up with it but I think they'd make a neat wine holder. Maybe you could hook a lot of them together and make a wine rack deal, or use them as wine gift boxes.

That's a cool idea, but I think they'd be too weak for that.

You can store the kids' toy cars in there...they can pretend it's a parking garage.

What about paper-mache?  It'd be a pain to do the full depth of the boxes if they were left (mostly) intact, but you could shorten them...orcut a section out of the middle, leaving a strip of cardboard connecting the front scetion to the back section.  Tape, add funky cardboard details,, and voila!

I've made various hanging shelves with random pieces of cardboard or boxes paper-mached...after drying they are quite strong.  Did a 4-section knick-knack shelf with four OJ cartons cut off and taped together...lots of possibilities!

You can cut the side open that has the handle/opening(disposing of it) and then put contact paper on the now open rectangle  box and put it in the tops of closets or inside desk drawers to  put things in for storage that don't fit in a conventional size storage box.(those fold up umbrellas, rolls of shelf paper, loose things like clothespins,pipecleaners,pompoms,)I used my husbands beer boxes for magazine holders. They were just the right size and when I contact papered them and stored them in my laundry room, they looked nice, too.
