Moving Boxes and Supplies
For some of your more delicate and fragile items, you will want to buy Moving Boxes and Supplies for your move. However, for other bulk items, there are many places that you can get free boxes and other moving supplies that would otherwise get thrown away.
- Grocery stores – Ask the produce section for boxes. They have lots of wooden boxes that are great for medium weight items. These boxes will probably be very dirty, however, so use them for garden and hardware items you need to move.
- Bookstores – Ask your local bookstore if they have any extra boxes. Boxes for books tend to be better quality and good for heavy objects.
- Bars and restaurants – They will also have good quality boxes for heavier items you need to move.
- Craigslist – A quick search in the free section will often produce quite a few boxes and other moving supplies that people are trying to get rid of. Don’t forget to pass them on when you’re done with them on Craigslist.
For all of these places, the gracious thing to do is to call ahead and check if they have any boxes they are trying to get rid of. That way, you save yourself time and they will know that you are coming ahead of time.
