Moving Boxes - greener and cheaper

For all of us who cringe at using brand-new boxes for our moves. . .

I just got a call from Warren at Bay Area Box Express - which reminded me how great is is to have someone selling manufacturers' overstock, misprinted, and barely-used boxes - and at discount prices. And they deliver!

Since Bay Area Box Express only serves the San Francisco Bay Area, another company worth knowing about is UsedCardboardBoxes.com.

Wow, that is the most mind-wobblingly useful link I've seen in forever!!! Used boxes! Fabulous!

I'm about to move, so I might look into it. The first and most obvious is to get them from work to eliminate any other type of disposal, we'll see how many I can come up with, my boss is moving, too, I might have to fight for them. ;)

Best wishes for the move, Melanie. And if you can't get those free boxes at work, I'm glad to have provided a good alternative.

Most peoplee don't realize these moving boxes can be used more than once. I even use some of them to storage things at home. I have some electronics, cables and a bunch of stuff in them. For me is a good alternative to buying extra file cabinets. And even they are carboard made I can say they are really strong
