Online shopping has many perks. You don’t have to leave your house and your order is conveniently delivered to your door, but what do you do with all the leftover boxes? We at Leader Box have come up with 10 creative ways to reuse all those amazon boxes you have collected.
10 Ways to Reuse Boxes
1.Gardening – Spring has sprung and it’s the perfect time to start planning this year’s garden. For many plants, you need to start the growth inside, and then transfer your plant to a larger pot outside. This is where cardboard boxes come in. They will save you money on a small planter and make great temporary homes for your plants.
2.Yard Solution – In addition to cardboard being used for gardening, it can also be used to keep the weeds in your yard away. Just place flat pieces of cardboard on your weed-prone areas and water thoroughly to help them stay put. When you are done, add soil or mulch on top to camouflage the cardboard.
3.Child’s Play – Your child may have all the toys in the world, but the one thing kids love is cardboard! Save your boxes and have them build a fort! They can color the cardboard or decorate it to match their style. It will be a great way for them to use their imagination.
4.Cat Entertainment – Cardboard boxes are a great space your cat will love. Not only do they enjoy taking refuge in boxes, but they also love the feeling of the cardboard. So why not save your furniture and give your cat a new, fun place to hang out where they can also feel safe.
5.Drink Coasters – Looking for a quick save for your tables, but don’t have time to shop for coasters? A pair of scissors and some cardboard is all you need. You can also protect your floor as these make great furniture sliders!
6.Gift Tags or Gift Wrap – Have a party to go to but you forgot to buy gift wrap? No worries! Reusing your cardboard box for a gift is a great idea. You can also cut out pieces of cardboard and attach some string or ribbon and voila, you have a gift tag!
7.Crafting – Reusing cardboard boxes for crafting is always a good idea. You can create your own paint easel, make a DIY picture frame or even your own wall art. The possibilities are endless!
8.Party Décor– When you have cardboard, there’s no need to visit the party store. You can cut different shapes and designs out of cardboard allowing for a sturdy, creative decoration for your next celebration.
9.Organization – Buying plastic containers to organize can get expensive. Save your time and money and use cardboard to organize your belongings. Cardboard is great to separate items or to use as file holders.
10.Bird Feeder –Give your feathery friends a tasty treat by making a homemade birdfeeder out of a cardboard toilet paper roll as your base. Cover it with peanut butter and roll it in bird seed. Then slip a string or ribbon through it and hang from a tree close to your window. The birds will be thrilled!
