Nonword of the Week: Boxidemic

Boxidemic: a superabundance of boxes, storage containers, etc. in a particular area.

Example: The family room often experienced a boxidemic when Christmas decorating time came around.

There is a nonstop boxidemic raging in our basement, but it has recently spread to the main living areas. Containers full of ornaments and holiday doodads have been toted up temporarily to be unpacked, creating an impromptu obstacle course.

I should also note that there is a boxidemic in the garage right now and it is my fault – but it is temporary too (I promise!) and will clear up when I get a new apartment where I can stash it all.
