  • Family dollar, they will give you all the boxes they can. You can also check at food lion and places like that.

  • I always get the egg boxes from the grocery store or go to a liquor store. The liquor store boxes are also very sturdy since usually there are glass bottles in them. If you call ahead and ask most places will save them for you.

  • If you live anywhere close to a military base, look on craigslist especially because people PCS'ing in will often have LOTS of boxes they are willing to give away. Also like the posts above said, grocery store, liquor store, those are your best bets.

  • I hope you don't bring roaches along with you during your move! They are known to hide away in boxes from grocery stores!

  • The best boxes are from the produce section of the grocery store...go to the produce area of the grocery stores look for the produce person and ask for fruit boxes. They have handles and the have covers
    nursing homes and hospitals will have the larger boxes...ask the housekeeping office for them
    the liquer store has boxes with 6 or 8 sections that are perfect for packing glasses and cups
