Free USPS Boxes, Envelopes, & Shipping Supplies

Ever wondered what you could do with a bunch of boxes? Well wonder no more my friends, because the USPS gives them away – for free! So go get your free USPS shipping supplies and build a fort for your kids…or yourself.

I originally posted this in 2006 (πŸ‘€) and it's still going strong all these years later.

You used to be able to flip these boxes inside out in order to ship things non-priority express, but they've since changed the construction of the boxes to prevent this. There's nothing stopping you from using them around the house, if you wanted, but obviously these should really only be ordered if you want to ship stuff via USPS Priority Express and skip the hassle of packaging your items once arriving at your post office. Getting these boxes sent to your home also allows you to purchase & pay for priority shipping on-line, then you can print out the paid postage and hand it to the mailperson when they drive by, thereby saving you a trip to the post office.
