Maybe you decided to do a lot of online shopping for Christmas with Amazon. What do you do with all of those empty boxes? You could recycle, or put them to good use.

Did you know that Amazon has a program where you can fill those empty Amazon boxes with old clothes or unwanted items? You can fill these boxes with the normal things you would normally donate or throw away. Amazon will send these items to the nearest Goodwill location.

All you have to do is print out a free shipping label from, take it to the post office, UPS location, or schedule a pickup from UPS. Fill the box with the items you'd like to donate, and Amazon does the rest of the work. You can even send ripped up clothing as long as you specify on the box with "rags" or "Salvage", that way these items get a second life too.
