Hi there @janelleharvey,
Welcome to the Dropbox Community!
From what I understand, you are sharing content by sending it to users in a shared folder.
Since shared folders take up storage in your account and anyone else's who adds it, you can send them a shared link to it, instead.
That way, they'll have view-only access and the folder won't take up space in their account.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions and I'd be more than happy to help!
