Cardboard boxes?

Inspired by BSG.

So in the first hour of the 3 hr series finale, we see the Old Man packing all of his books into boxes. Cardboard boxes. My question is this, where do you get cardboard boxes on a battlestar? And, generalizing to all sci fi (I’ve read my fair share), if space is so tight on any kind of space going vessel, excluding most of Banks’ Culture vessels, where would you store all of the boxes? Why would you store boxes? Why would they be cardboard boxes?

This is going to bug me for a while.
