If I have a parcel from Amazon who I my go to online shop I will always keep the box, as I am in the process of moving and it saves having to buy a load of boxes as they are there ready. I am also liking that online stores are using reusuable delivery sealable bags, as I have used this to put some clothes in ready to put in a suitcase when my love brings them round, to then pack without it taking too long.
I use boxes for storing certain items too, and I used to love Nigella Lawson as she would have a trunk in her shed where she would keep different frying pans in, of ones she loved using, but didn't use all of the time, and if you have a plastic microwave bowl these are great to use for a Lazy Susan and I have even used a Pot Noodle Pot as a pen holder on my desk.
I use shoes boxes as a bedside organizer where I put spare USB sticks and old bank cards.
I love any item that can be recycled, because it reduces waste, helps clear up spaces and saves me money on having to buy carts all of the time.
So look at the thing you throw away to see if they can be reused.
Look on Pinterest, which is my go to platform for ideas.
