Thank you!
There is no way I am paying $4.00-$5.00 for 1 box. I went out 3x a week for 2 week, an hour each day and my house is LOADED with boxes, nice clean boxes for our upcoming move. Go to any liquor store and ask them for boxes, espically the ones that hold the large wine bottles, there are 6 dividers in them, not need to bubble wrap anything in them, unless it is very fragile. Also I have a strip mall by my house, Somerville area and a Starbucks, beauty salon and they are loaded with boxes. Have to be resourceful

You have lots of good suggestions. For small, strong boxes I find that the local liquor stores are the best bet. Lowes and Home Depot sell good boxes and if you belong to Costco, I believe I saw a moving box kit they were selling. Also, if you need school or neighborhood reports for the area you are moving to I can email them to you.
Good luck in your move!

The last time my parents moved they went to shoprite and asked. They had boxes that they throw away and they got them for free. They were good boxes, too

Thank you!
Sam's Club sells a bulk of boxes for about $20. You can also get boxes that are especially good for glasses at Liquor stores for free. They have the seperators to pack each individual glass.
Good Luck with your Move!
