Sometimes they help keep the box lid snug , sometimes they are just in the way . Depends on the box and application.

CBG non-rule # 3   The day after you toss them out ,, you'll  need em for something  ;-)

And this - Murphey's Law

I have used them to brace cardboard boxes. make saddles, shims, and a variety of other uses. I never toss them out.
