    Where do you go to get boxes when you move?

    I've had some success at book stores, and, of course, you can always buy them. Anybody here know some low cost (or free) places to get boxes?

    I moved recently and ended up buying a pack of small boxes from Uhaul; they guarantee to buy back any you don't use, so you don't have to worry about getting too many.

    You can ask for boxes at your local grocery store.  They have tons of them from all the product deliveries. They usually cut them up and dispose of them.  If you want all a specific size, try your local UPS store. Do a Google search. Hope that helps.

    I ask at Wal-Mart...generally if you let them know what size you want, they'll save a cartload from the cardboard compactor. One of the stores I've gotten them from I had to come back after they'd gathered the desired boxes, but two trips to the store is better than spending money in my book smile. Freecycle.org can be pretty useful for stuff like that too.

    You can go to pretty much any store that has products shipped in and ask for their empty card board ones.

    The hardware and grocery store.  They dispose of the boxes pretty quickly but you can call ahead and ask them to save some for you.
