We have a daughter and her family who live 3000 miles away so I am always mailing packages. I also order many Christmas gifts, etc. and save the boxes to re-use. Removing the mailing labels has always been so annoying, but I happened to think of using my blow dryer to heat up the labels. Usually they peel right off! I was elated!
Occasionally, I receive padded mailers through the mail and always keep them to reuse. Most address labels, stamps and return address labels can be removed totally. If not, some brown tape will cover what's left. These recycled mailers can be used again, and you've saved the cost of new ones. It's been several years since I have had to purchase any.

Here are questions related to Reusing Mailing Supplies.
You can call your local elementary school and ask if they need them in the art department. I know we save all of our paper towel rolls and different kinds of cans, like coffee cans for the local headstart children. They do many projects thru the year that they can use all of these items.
