    Making a moving sale is an interesting idea – I am planning to move this summer and I will certainly use these tips! Thanks. Jeremy

    Great! When I come to think of it, my aunt and uncle recently moved – I can surely ask them if they still keep their boxes!

    I had never thought about facebook but it really works – funny as it may sound. I did post your article on my wall and one of my friends I am not keeping in touch with wrote me to tell me he has some boxes he is not using so I just had to drive by after work and pick them up. He got some extra empty space at his attic and I got some free boxes – isn’t that awesome!

    I didn’t know there could be so many ways to supply myself with boxes for my moving!

  8. You can check them online too. Make sure you do get those with high quality. So that you can use them in the future. Thanks for the ideas you shared too.

    Moving is one of the most stressful things in life and not having the right equipment/ people to help is a mistake. Planning, planning, planning.

    Craigslist. Works every time. Not only have I gotten boxes from Craigslist, but when I was done with them, I passed them on to yet another craigslister!! Happy moving!!

  11. Never thought of a liquor store for boxes. There is a third option for moving boxes. In Portland, Oregon you can rent moving boxes from a company called AlienBox. Cheaper then driving all over town to buy boxes, assemble them and then break them back down to recycle.

    You can go to a local Dick’s Sporting Goods Store or Walmart. They are always receiving trucks into their warehouses and stores and should always have cardboard boxes available for free if you just ask a manager.

    The idiot at my supermarket's service desk snidely informed me at lunchtime today that they don't save boxes for people. Sure enough, a whole pallet of them broken down behind the store. What a waste, and what horrible customer service skills. Taking my shopping dollars (and maybe finding boxes) elsewhere

    Thank you so much for this post! I learn a lot from here on where I could get free boxes,like asking your friends and family if they have used boxes, or check supermarket for used boxes.

    I found out that there are some companies who sell brand new boxes and used boxes. They will buy back your boxes as soon as your done using it!
