January is always a good time for a fresh start, which means purging and donating according to this great POPSUGAR post on why parents should declutter in January. Amazon has a great solution to make the entire process of gathering items and donating them easier than ever.

With the Give Back Box program not only are you able to easily donate items you no longer need, but you’ll also be giving all of your empty Amazon boxes a new purpose. Instead of filling up your recycling bin, you can instead fill up your empty box with items you no longer need and ship them off for donation. No Amazon box? No problem. Several other online retailers, like Overstock, Jet, Uncommon Goods have also partnered with the Give Back Box program. You can also use any cardboard shipping box you have handy.

Once you’ve packed up the box with things like clothes, toys, shoes or other gently used household items. You can then print a free pre-paid shipping label through the Give Back Box site here. Labeled boxes can be dropped off at the Post Office or UPS, or you can even set up a pick-up from home by your mail carrier.
