To think -- we used to pay for shipping envelopes and boxes!
We still have to, on some occasions, but clean, dry boxes left from cereal, cookies, and other edibles make good shipping containers for books, magazines and sturdy items, though they're too flimsy for more fragile things.
I just turn them inside out.
MY RECOMMENDATION : SKIP the ones that contained peanut products. Toss 'em out.
I was about to assemble for reuse this box that had held peanut butter cookies, when it occurred to me that an eBay buyer with severe enough peanut allergies might actually react to the trace amounts in the cardboard. This one goes to recycling instead.
And that was today's project.
