Living during a pandemic means suddenly acquiring more boxes than you used to. Rather than going out to a physical store, you simply order what you want or need. Now add an infant into the picture.
Boxes on the floor, under the table, even on an exercise bike.
The apartment is clogged with boxes, and the apartment community's recycling containers are always full, because everyone else has a cardboard clogged apartment, as well.
So what in the heck do you do?!
You build an architectural masterpiece... or, at least a much-needed shoe rack.
