How can I reuse amazon boxes?

I get a lot of Amazon deliveries (living in the boonies). I would love to see some reuse ideas for them. They come in all different sizes so it would be great if that information is included.

    Pinterest search Upcycle boxes. I have seen people cut the lids off, use fabric or wallpaper or even decopage' glued to the outside, maybe a layer of fabric inside for a finished look, and use for storage around the house. This is a great way to clear the "cluttered" look, and create a unified decor on say, a bookshelf.

    I also have this problem. I also do most of my shopping through Amazon. Their boxes are such high quality, it seems a shame not to reuse them rather than just recyle. I get far too many to reuse myself. I guess they would be great for small businesses shipping things, or perhaps people who sell on Ebay.......Millions of dollars are ending up in recycle centers rather than being reused. I don't really want to put them on Craigslist, since I don't want strangers traipsing around my property. I even mentioned the problem to amazon when they wanted feedback about their packaging.

    Since I love to garden and mulch my beds and shrubs yearly, I use broken down cardboard boxes under the mulch, especially where there is a reoccurring weed problem.

    Recently; I saw a project where the box was wrapped entirely in heavy twine glued directly to the outside of the box. When finished; the crafter made a cloth liner (such as those seen in baskets) and created what looked almost like a basket. The nice thing about this is you can create a box just the size you need.

      @Trish Lally So funny! That's what I was going to tell her! The boxes looked so cute! Almost like actual baskets without the cost! I'm planning on doing the twine on boxes for my laundry room as well as labeling each!
