The United States Postal Service will send you free boxes Flat-Rate Priority Mail.  You can get them in all shapes in sizes, depending on what you need to ship.

The only catch here is that you need to use these boxes for shipping, so make sure you receive one as a package before you start this!


Good, now you have the box!

Now that you have the box, you should fold it together or unfold it as necessary (see second picture) so that it does what you want it to do.

I also recommend that you tape the edges so that they stay together.

Good, now you're done!

When you're 60 and still have All of your teeth, besure to thank you parents for the care they gave you.

 I've got a feeling that if too many people start to do this the USPS will notice and start to charge for the boxes.
Dude, people have been orderingenough boxes to make couches out of them for years.

 This is a poor idea, simply because you are STEALING!  Those boxes are for priority mail shipping only and when people abuse them it affects all of us.  If you want free storage boxes go to any retailer and ask.  They will happily give you arm loads.

I've been using them for years. I even made a table out of them for use during my garage sale then after used them to store the leftovers.
