Other than going to walmart or some store and asking for some.

  • That is really the only way, no shame in my game...

    That I know of, local stores.. Instead of walking in call, and see if they have any.

  • Call around to your local moving companies, they have tons of used boxes that they throw away or recycle. They might give you some. Good luck..

  • Check Freecycle as well. You can get boxes from there and I have before.

  • Liquor stores are a good source for strong boxes, and the built-in dividers are good for small items and breakables.

  • I would check with U-haul. They company owned ones have a box recycle program where you can drop off used boxes after your done moving so other people can use them.
