What can you do with all of your Amazon boxes?


  1. Fill them with stuff to donate and ship them for free (link)
  2. Turn them into a home for your cat / guinea pig / ferret
  3. Use them for a recycling bin in your home or office
  4. Save them for friends who may be moving
  5. Organize your year-end files / paperwork for storage
  6. Compost
  7. Make little robots
  8. Build a fort
  9. Cut them into cardboard sheets that you can put in envelopes to keep them from bending
  10. Build a wall that you can crash through, Kool-Aid Man style
  11. Return whatever you ordered to Amazon (you probably didn't need it anyway)
  12. Put them on Craigslist or LetGo for free
  13. Recycle them
  14. Teach your kids how to use a pocketknife to cut them up
  15. Flatten them out and put them in your mudroom to absorb all the snow and mud this time of year
  16. Fill them with cookies, tape them back up and leave them on your neighbor's porch
  17. Tape them up, put them on your porch and tell your kids to watch and make sure nobody steals them
