I am able to pick up many things with my Pickup Box. This
carton really IS reusable.
I often drop things that I don't want to mutilate by picking up with my
feet, so I use my Pickup Box. This idea occurred to me while I was
living alone at the University of Illinois.
An ordinary cardboard box is stripped of its flaps and fitted with a
"string handle". The box I use is approximately 2' by 1' by 1'. When I
drop something, I turn the box onto its side, slide the fallen object
into it with my foot, turn the box right-side-up, and grasp the string
with my hand to pick the box up. I then set it on a table, turn the box
back onto its side with my chin or Headfinger, and get the object out
of the box with my Headfinger.
