Instead of posting links to Making Do Ideas on this blog now (I'll just post my own projects here though they are few and far between now), I'm now posting them on my Pinterest Board named Making Do Stuff.
You do not have to have a Pinterest account to see it.

Paper Bag Shipping
Use grocery store paper bags to wrap books or boxes for the post office. Don't need to buy the brown paper on rolls, just use one bag to cover up the majority of the box and put pieces in the holes that aren't quite covered and tape them on.
This is especially useful for shipping books. Don't need a envelope or box, just wrap them up in paper bags.
Put shipping tape across the address sections all the way around the box to keep it from getting torn off in transit.
