Throwing away car seat boxDid you just buy a car seat? Don’t throw out that box or receipt just yet! You may find out it doesn’t work quite right in your vehicle or your significant other’s vehicle and you may need to return or exchange it. If you don’t have space in your house or apartment to store the box, it’s OK to break it down and store it flat.

The last place you want to throw away a box is in the parking lot of the store where you bought the car seat. That nearly assures you that once you get the car seat home, there will be a problem with it and you’ll need to return it ;) .
