The dreaded 'BOX'

Post by Triumph-Rat »

After setting stuff up today I have discovered that my house has A BOX!!

I thought I had eradicated these from the building when I gave up keeping reptiles, but in one weekend messing with tanks I now have a new one growing.

At the moment it only holds a few clips and magnets and a thermometer (which I probably will never use.....YES YOU WILL.....no I won't :cry: ) but I have seen these things before and know they are like gremlins fed after midnight!!

How do you guys deal with it, as I know a small cardboard box this week will be a metal container next week.

Please help!!

hide it the attic so it doesn't tease you!

Although mine turned into 3 large cardboard boxes, one plastic and a few things scattered around the attic ( light units, canister filters to name a few )

Haha, my house is a dormer bungalow so this is a real issue for me, there's literally no storage anywhere!

I don't go in the attic, it might contain reptile remnants that I could catch and just make the situation worse :cry:

I have a box with spare heaters, filters and other odds'n'sods.
I am a box squirrel anyway, just in case things have to be returned/moved/stored....... ;)
