The mystery box of treasures 6



View Profile

I had a lovely surprise this week and it moved me so much I had to share it with you.

A large cardboard box appeared on my door step. On top was a message.



Inside we found all sorts of things:  mugs, an apple peeler, books and a variety of beauty and household things. The note urged us to take a couple of things and perhaps add a couple of things and pass it on.  We have no idea where it came from, but have done what they asked, all the goods were in new condition. We added some new books and a necklace etc to the box and then left it on the doorstep of a neighbour.


Its a nice idea, just wish we knew where it came from!


Has anyone else here ever seen a mystery box like this?  Is it something you think might be nice to try?

She worked at a hospital, where she took several Certificated courses, she cleaned a school, helped to run two conventions, wrote short stories, started painting, and in fact is never bored even now, "I honestly feel we are lucky to still be upright and breathing, and my motto is, Remember yesterday, dream of tomorrow, but live today. I love fun, clothes, food and friends."

  1. Hi Jacqui

    I haven’t experienced that, but what a good idea.!! When we have a cleanout,often items unused and unwanted are included, and often get thrown out. The box could be left on a neighbour or Friend’s doorstep (as long as you are sure nothing in the box was a past gift from them)for them to take/add things… but it could just be added to as well and then taken to a local organisation that distributes to those in need. In either case, someone gets the benefit!

  2. What a lovely idea! Haven’t heard of this one, but there is a book scheme, where one leaves a book that has been enjoyed in a public place, with a note to pass it on once the receiver has read it. I have encountered three books in this way, and have let several books free to fly!

  3. What a lovely idea I think lots of people would have something nice to put in a box and pass it on

  4. Lovely idea and way to recycle, I haven’t had one left on my doorstep and not sure how I would have reacted if I hadn’t of read your post.

  5. When someone writes an post he/she maintains the plan of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.

    Therefore that’s why this post is great. Thanks!
