What to do with your Amazon boxes

After the holidays, put some of those shipping boxes to use with Give Back Box. You can donate items you no longer want and ship them to goodwill for free.

Then print a *free* shipping label at GiveBackBox.com.

It's the season of giving, and even though the biggest gift opening day of the year is now in our rear view mirror, Amazon wants to help you give a little more. The companies are using the Give Back Box program - a free shipping service - to find new owners for used clothes, cookware and accessories.

The program, called the Give Back Box, does not require the boxes to have the Amazon logo on them, so any cardboard box conforming to UPS or U.S. Postal Service requirements is acceptable for delivery of goods to Goodwill. A shipping label will be automatically generated.

Donations will go to the donor's nearest participating Goodwill organization.

If you received some gifts over the holidays that didn't fit the bill, there is a way to get a tax deduction and do some good.

Bring the box to a local post office or UPS store, and they will deliver it to the closest Goodwill.
