Acquiring free shipping materials

Amazon has become extremely popular and I've found a way to reuse their shipping materials.  Amazon uses sturdy boxes and they often add some shipping airbags, Bubble Wrap, or craft paper to keep the items from rolling around.  That's useful stuff!  I posted on my local Facebook group and Craigslist to let the community know that I'd happily take that stuff off their hands.  The boxes are branded, so I cover them up with the brown craft paper that came in other Amazon shipments or I buy my own craft paper which is inexpensive.  It's been an easy way to acquire free shipping materials.

Unfortunately, my cats call dibs on the boxes and craft paper as soon as the package arrives.   You have a good idea about reusing those supplies.  It saves money and it keeps it out of the landfill - at least for now.
