I found Bed, Bath, & Beyond to be a great resource for free boxes. They gave me a ton of them in all different sizes. I would ask the store the best day and time to pick them up. Usually it will be a weekday morning. Also look at Craigslist as people usually post about giving away boxes. If you have freecycle here, that is another resource. As other posters stated, liquor stores are good for small sturdy boxes.

I like the cardboard file boxes with handles and lids that you can get at Office Max or Staples. They are sturdy enough to fill with books but not so big that you can't pick them up afterwards, and they are easy to stack. They aren't free, but they fold flat so you can re-use them. I have some I've used for three moves so far.

We scored over 200 free boxes on Craigslist several years ago when relocating. After we moved, I posted them on Craigslist in the free section and they were all gone in 2 days. Pay it forward!

Liquor stores have always worked for me. If you ask ahead, they can tell you what day they get their big shipments in.

Don't forget that this would also be a good time to donate items that you don't need or use anymore to Goodwill or Salvation Army. Get a receipt so you can take a tax deduction for it. Plus, it would mean less stuff to move.
