    Brag about yourself
    Ugh, boxes. We're guessing you probably have some boxes piling up at home, especially after the holidays. (Thank you, Amazon Prime). Sure, you can recycle them and do your part to cut waste, but there's another option: Fill 'em up with stuff to donate. Amazon and Goodwill have partnered to provide the Give Back Box platform, which lets you reuse Amazon boxes to ship (for free) clothes and household goods directly to local Goodwill locations. Check it out.
