Moving? Get Free Moving Boxes!

My friend was moving apartments the other day and he was telling me how his roommate had taken some of his moving boxes without his permission. When he told me he had paid good money for his moving boxes, I told him that when I moved I just went to the grocery store to get some cardboard boxes they were going to throw out.

An advantage besides getting free boxes is that you can dispose of them after the move, thus freeing up space. Ask for "banana boxes", which are pretty big and can carry quite a bit of weight. They need to have a liner in the middle of the bottom of the box which is usually a strong construction paper material.

Good luck and remember to lift with your legs!
