    What to Do With All Your Shipping Boxes From Online Shopping

    Chances are your home swelled with new holiday gifts, as they mixed in with all the old items. Not to mention all the boxes piling up from online shopping.

    It's time to get rid of the old toys and clothes, and make room for all the new stuff you may have received recently.

    Amazon and the company GiveBackBox have teamed up to make donating easier, while reusing all those shipping boxes at the same time.

    UPS or the U.S. Postal Service will deliver the box.

    Amazon says the donations will go to the nearest participating charitable organization, and your effort will help those boxes get more use as well.
