Your post made me realize something.
Amazon places small items in large boxes with some sort of air filled plastic pillow.
The box is at least 10 times to large.
I am now convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Amazon is encouraging us to reuse their boxes.
I take that box and can wrap three books in cardboard, the way one would wrap a gift for a friend.
I received an email recently from an elderly lady out West who wrote: “Thank you so much for finding a little box that was exactly the size for my book!” LMAO… what a sweetheart!
