An excess of boxes

My roommate and I both order a lot from Amazon consequently we have many boxes around here. I try to utilize most of them in some way, but I have lots that are sitting here empty taking up space. I need to take them to the recycling center. Do you ever have extra boxes around?

I donĀ“t buy so many things so as to have too many boxes. I mostly spend my retirement money in food and bills

Well one of the boxes that just came was a box for my cat's special food. Also, my sister sent me some birthday presents in a box.

@snowy22315 If a box comes to my life, I place it by the garbage can (not inside). The people who come for the garden take then to special places and they get some cents for them.

@marguicha That works! Some places in other states pay for recycling bottles and plastic containers.

I find it really hard to throw out nice boxes and I end up having empty boxes stashed in cupboards so I have no hope of finding them even when I want one.

Well these aren't nice but they are serviceable. Christmas boxes and the like, I agree with you.

@snowy22315 I've also kept a couple of Christmas tins which I thought I might fill with home-made biscuits this year for gifts.

The kids at home love to play boxes and throw anywhere so there aren't boxes here.

Yes, I have extra boxes around all the time. We take them to the recycling bins every two weeks.

Well since, I am planning a move, I am using most of them..but looking around right now, I see 4 empty ones. I will take them to the recycling I think, because I am sure they will be replaced!
