Good Morning,

we are moving this upcoming weekend and most of our belongings will be in storage for the summer. We need bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts so can anyone recommend a place here in Austin that may sell it for cheap or someplace that may have it for free possibly?
We DO NOT want to buy any from Uhaul, they are expensive.

Thanks

Have you looked on craigslist under the Free section? People who have just moved sometimes post their packing materials on there.

Econobox on Rutland has some used packing options if craigslist doesn't come through.

I was going to say craigslist too. A lot of people give away all of their boxes and packing stuff after they move.

There's also a place called Ecobox on Brodie in South Austin that has used boxes, moving supplies. I thought they were very reasonable.
