Where to Buy Moving Boxes and Supplies
Moving Boxes and Supplies - Where can you find them?
Moving is one of the most stressful life events that you can go through. To better manage this stressful event, plan ahead. One part of the planning is making sure that you have the right amount of moving boxes and supplies so that you can quickly and safely pack up your belongings in an organized way.
So where can you buy moving boxes and supplies? I'm going to help to give you some ideas here below. I'll also share some helpful tips for packing so that moving will be as smooth of a process as possible.
Grocery Stores For Free Boxes
If you don't have a lot of things to move and are moving from a smaller apartment to a home, going to your local grocery store might be a good way to find some free boxes for moving. However, if you have a lot of things and are doing a big move, this may not be the best option because the boxes you will find will be different sizes which makes it more difficult to pack and fit in the moving truck. The different sized boxes also makes it hard to plan your pack.
However, if free sounds good for you, go to your local grocery store in the weeks before you move. Be sure to stock up ahead of time.
My favorite boxes from the grocery store are milk boxes. These are great because they are a perfect cube and are strong enough to hold 4 gallons of milk. This makes them sturdy, easy to carry and easy to stack.

Buy Moving Boxes Online
It may not be the most conventional way to buy moving boxes, but there is something to be said about convenience. Ordering moving boxes online is becoming an increasingly popular method because the boxes are affordable and they can be delivered right to your front door which saves you the time and hassle of going to the store to buy them or from trying to find free ones at the grocery store.
These boxes are ideal because they are strong and durable and they close securely without needing any tape. They are also easy to assemble and are easy to break down for future use.
