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.
just go to any store and ask thats what my freind done.
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 . 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.

I am curious where you get your food from.. Do you shop traditional grocery stores or are health food/co-ops the store for you? Do you grow gardens of produce? Do you can or freeze much if you do garden? Do you shop farmers markets rather than grow your own? Where do you get meats from?...

Do you save your moving boxes after a move or keep them for the next move?Do you throw away your boxes and just buy / acquire new ones for the next move? I always save my boxes so I do not have to worry about it for the next move.

Where does food from the 99 cent store come from?The 99 cent only stores sell brands that are in Vons and Ralphs at clearly, a fraction of the cost, so why are they in the 99 cent store?

Are friends becoming more of a commodity or a symbol of status in the advent of social media? What does the word "friend" actually mean these days? It can be partially summed up with the disturbingly common attitude that it's "rude" to ask your friends to help you move....
