  • You can often get really nice boxes for free on craigslist. Also check places like grocery stores, shoe stores, etc. I got many free boxes from Krogers.

  • Autozone battery boxes are great for kitchen glassware. Walmart and the dollar stores. I would not go to grocery stores or you may take all of their salmonella and e.coli and roaches with you. Food=contamination.
    Also music stores like GuitarCenter, their amp boxes are double boxes, so you get two with each box and they are the perfect size for towels linens and toys, pillows.

  • won't take food boxes but will put dishes in BATTERY boxes? OMG, tell me that's a joke. It's ok to put your dishes in boxes with poisoned corrosives though?

  • If you military or live near a post/base, go there! There should be tons at the recycling center. Also if you live close to a post most have sites such as "sill yard sales" and "lewis yard sales"......That's where I posted all my boxes after our last move!
