I often buy things from Ebay and here. Most everyone has shipped the items in a cardboard box or envelope. Not long ago, I ordered an item from ebay and it came in a used puzzle box. The item arrived in good condition and so was the box. LOL!!

Have you ever sent/received an item in different/odd packaging?

We have had some really funny things happen at Christmas time when someone put something in a box that was not labeled as the item inside. The person thought they were getting something completely different than what they got, LOL.

Yep, mac and cheese, pasta, cereal to name a few, recycling is popular and the shipping is often less.

I use empty oatmeal boxes to mail items. The round size is a hoot for the recipient. I can get lots of fat quarters rolled into a big oatmeal container.

How neat!!! I didn't know you could use boxes like that to mail stuff in. So much more fun to find in your mailbox than a plain box.

Oat meal containers are great mailers.
