Need Boxes For Moving? Storage? Whatever?

I see this a lot. Someone moving and buying boxes.... or posting on craigslist or freecycle asking for or where to get cheap boxes.

You can almost always get FREE boxes. (I only say almost cause I'm sure somewhere this isn't the case, I just don't know about the place).

Go to your local grocery store (well, probably any store really that does volume in sales) and ask for boxes. Take a piece of paper or index card with your name, number, rough size of box preference (if applicable), when you will be back to get them and how many you want. Leave it with customer service, a backroom manager or nightstock manager. Then come back at that time! (or the boxes will have long since hit the compactor).

Most stores are more then happy to throw some boxes in a cart rather then the compactor for a customer who asks nicely =)

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
