Does anyone know where to get moving boxes for cheap? Obviously getting them from someone who just moved in is the cheapest (free), but for those that need to purchase some - where have you found it to be the cheapest?

I have bought sets of packing boxes from stores like Sam's Club and Costco in the past. I can't recall the exact pricing of them, but it was reasonable.

Go to the bakery department at Sams or Costco in the morning, and ask for their empty boxes. They are clean, sturdy, and great for moving. When we moved I did weekly trips to Sams for these great, FREE boxes. Good luck with your move.

Our moving company - 2 guys and a truck - provided us with all the boxes for free. I bet others are doing the same think. If not using one, try amazon or costco.

We've gotten spare boxes from department stores, but lots of them were somewhat damaged, or weak. I've always found it best to look up local companies and compare prices. When we lived in Texas, one group we considered was http://www.boxes4u.com/categories/boxes
