How do you get boxes from liquor stores?  Ask them at the front if they have spare boxes?

do you have a local starbucks where you have a good relationship with the baristas?  They get shipments of stuff almost everyday and might be wiling to save boxes for you.

I would just go to grocery stores and stuff and ask them if they have any extra cardboard boxes. We put most of our stuff in garbage bags! I hate moving too and just wanted to be out of our rental so got those big black heavy duty bags and just dumped armloads in it!

miss AsB – yeah, liquor stores usually hold on to boxes for packing up large purchases of liquor/wine, and they’ll sometimes hook you up with boxes if you just ask.

I will have to remember to ask people when we move!  I agree with Rosie that most of the time I usually put most stuff in trash bags or throw it in the back of the car to drive locally.

I used to hit grocery stores- but before you go get boxes, ask them when they normally crush them. Go the next time at the right time and it’ll be no problem. Also, this might not work for you in the city, but last time i helped our friends move, we went to the outdoor town center mall and drove around the back of all the stores and found some big sturdy boxes behind the furniture store, target, stores like that. There were other dumpster divers there too,haha.

Yeah, we put all our books, pots, pans, EVERYTHING you can think of besides glass in garbage bags! We also just loaded up the car without boxes and drove it over, unpacked and went back and kept doing that. With my SUV and his SUV plus his Dad’s truck, it didn’t take that many trips.

We called Walmart and they said they would hold some for us.  Got about 40 for free!

go behind drug stores or strip malls. But if it’s late take somebody with you, it can be creepy! But there will be as many boxes as you could possibly need!

the liquor store.  They are the right size and sturdy.
