January 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #125: Free Moving Boxes

Tip of the Week

If you are not picky about where your moving boxes come from or if they have been used in the past, you are a candidate for using recycled or free moving boxes. Let's face it, a moving box can be used more than once, cardboard is a sturdy material and lasts for a long time, don't hesitate to use recycled boxes for your upcoming move.

One great place to search for free moving boxes in your area is at Freecycle.org. A site such as this has advertisements for free items- and lots of times these free items are boxes that someone wants to get rid of, but doesn't want to throw away. If you find used boxes on Freecycle, you simply pick them up at a designated location.

Another place to search for free moving boxes is through Craigslist.com, which has a free item section. Search Craigslist in your area for free moving boxes today.

If you don't feel comfortable using the Internet for your free moving box search, try checking your local grocery store. Many grocery stores empty out several boxes in the early morning hours and many grocery stores will save boxes for you. You may have a grocery store that won't save boxes for you and instead will set out boxes each day for people to take. Either way, you can usually find free boxes at stores near you.
