Moving: Boxes

Save money on moving boxes by picking up used boxes from someone else who has just made a move.  Check the want ads and Craigslist.  Many people just want to get rid of them as quickly as possible when they are done with them.  They will give them to the first person who comes and gets them.


Another options is to check with a local mover, and see if they offer used boxes for a discount.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on moving boxes.


- Check the stores in your area to see if they crush all their boxes, or have a delivery day and will give empty product boxes away.
- Don't pack items like towels and blankets.  Use them as filler to protect other items.
- Use every item that holds storage for packing, including suitcases, wardrobes, drawers, etc.
- Declutter before you move.  Moving is a good time to "clean house" and get rid of items you
haven't used in years.
