Something I tripped over,, sounds like a great way to get rid of stuff.

A few years ago Chicago businesswoman Monika Wiela came up with a novel — and completely painless — idea for recycling used items. Pack them up in all those shipping boxes you have piled in the garage, slap a free label on them and ship them to Goodwill. And it costs you nothing.

Here’s how it works:

You take the cardboard boxes that all of your online orders were shipped to you in – or any large cardboard box at all – fill it with your donations and tape it shut. Visit the Give Back Box website and print a free shipping label. Drop the box off at the post office or UPS, or request a pick-up from your post office.
