VIDEO: LOOTB + ASU Students Give in Mexico

Giving school supplies is our favorite part of LOOTB, so we were REALLY excited to bring a group of awesome students from Arizona State University with us to Mexico to give school supplies.

Life Out of the Box Timeline

This month we’ll be celebrating the 2 year anniversary of when we first launched the Life Out of the Box online store.

LOOTB Gives in Nogales, Mexico

After crossing the border, we were all excited to explore Nogales and give school supplies to children in town.

Wherever we go, we are always trying the different street food throughout Central America in attempts to further understand life in their country. Sometimes it’s a delicious meal, while other times not so much and it literally bites you in the […]

This is Life Out of the Box

We made this video of us when we explored the epic ruins of Monte Albán. Life is all about living it to it’s fullest potential. This video shows just that. The importance of taking advantage of the life that has been given. Live it up because you can. That is Life Out of the Box.

LOOTB Explores the Ruins of Mount Albán

Mount Albán is an amazing ancient Mexican ruin found on the edge of Oaxaca. For just under $5 one can see a very cool part of global history. We started through the museum to read and get a better understanding of what life was like thousands of years ago. Amazed by the attention to detail […]

After an amazing experience of giving school supplies to children in Oaxaca, we decided that we were ready for another adventure. This time we wanted to explore the tourist attraction, Mount Albán, which is an ancient Mexican ruin. Visiting tourist attractions is not our typical type of excursion, but none of us had ever seen […]
