You can usually get boxes at Walmart. Go at night after 3rd shift has started working and go on the grocery side...the stockers can usually gather some boxes for you to take. As for the newspaper...I usually have some on hand from time to time when we buy the Sunday paper so we've used that in the past.

Don't wait until last minute to pack...which is something we are notorious for doing and regret it each time.

Boxes are easy. Go to Walmart around 1 or 2am and they'll have tons that you can take off their hands. As far as newspapers are concerned, not sure. I would has my friends and family to save all theirs. you could always ask the local newpaper what the do with the copies that they don't sell.

also if you have freecycle in your area, that is a good place to  ask for moving material.

freecycle.org

I saved my junk mail- we get these newspapers in the mail 2 times a week..and used those to wrap stuff in..

Dont wait til the last minute to pack. Pack everything you can.. and as you pack put stuff you dont want or need in a seperate box so you dont take junk that you dont want to your new house.

Where do you live at?
