More on Gifts…BOXES!
It’s the holiday season and I’m sure you’re scrambling for gifts for friends, family, and loved ones. Have you thought about what you will put them in? Some gifts can be easily wrapped in paper, but others may require boxes for storage. Don’t stress about going out and getting boxes, I bet you have tons of re-usable ones in your pantry right now! Here are a few unconventional grocery items you can use as boxes for your holiday (or any other occasion for that matter) gifts!
These are just a few examples of things you may have in your home, without even realizing their use. Check out your closets, pantry, and kitchen cabinets for more stuff. Just by looking around my house, I have found a few boxes that I will be sure to use this holiday season. Here’s a few more: Cake mix or other recipe mix boxes, hot cocoa boxes, Cheez-it boxes, you name it!
Please remember, that if you aren’t going to use the boxes, recycle them!!! Cardboard and paper are recyclable items so don’t just throw them away! Also, remind your friends, family, and loved ones to recycle (or save for re-use) all their gift boxes and wrapping paper this holiday season!
