What sort of places should I look in person to buy crushed paper, and protective paper, to wrap fragile things? I haven't seen it anywhere. Does the post office sell it?

Crushed paper? Buy packing paper and crush it as you pack. Go to a moving company.

Do you have a newspaper printer near by? (Does your local or regional paper print on site? ) Call the production department there and ask if you can have the end of spool paper, Normally they just recycle it.

Its newsprint paper with out the ink on it, normally about 4" long and 10-20' in length (End of the roll/spool).

Lowe's sells it for $10 for way more than you'll ever need to use.

I think flyonpa means the paper is 4' wide (not 4") for the end of the spool newspaper.

We used quite a number of fruit produce boxes and found that some apples are individually wrapped in a thin Styrofoam-type wrapper. We did buy quite a number of bubble wrap options from Walmart - some were just rolls and some were perforated to create sheets.

Use what you have in regards to linens, towels and blankets. I know you will probably need more, but they can make a great start too.
