lol! no, egg 'cartons' won't do much for you. but they come to the store in cardboard boxes of 2 sizes. get the smaller of the 2 crates, not the double size. that larger size is too big unless you have baskets or a lamp or something. You fill one of those with books or clothes and it will be tougher to carry.

found another good source for empty boxes: if you know anyone who works at a Michaels craft store, or ask a manager... soemthing they call 're-pack' boxes. a little shorter than the egg cartons, but a little longer (so roughly the same space). nice and sturdy. they get loads every day.

Great, thank you. Next week is carton collection week for me, so I'll put Michael's to the top of my list.

Go to Chili's and ask for their fry boxes. My husband is a manager at one and we used those for our last move and they are great for movies and things like that. Nice and square. I promise, your stuff won't end up smelling like fries.
