    They seem quite sturdy. We had a cardboard one from Asda but it just didn’t last, plus these are a decent size so should fit a good amount in and once we no longer need it for Xmas eve box can always use it for decoration storage.
    My store didn’t have many left, they had loads a couple of weeks ago!

    The boxes from Home Bargains are excellent, bought them the past few years.

    I've still not started :( I have lists but need more money arghhh. I get paid end of the month.

    I admit in the past I've used my CC and paid myself back but trying not to this year. Also just paid out for girls swimming lessons and gymnastics which was £200.

    Hoping I can make a start after half term.
