Whether you use a professional mover or not you will want to pack some things yourself or even take some things yourself. That means you are going to have to get creative and become a box finding machine. Here are some places to start this endeavor:

The Office

Every office has boxes. Office supplies, books, manuals, equipment are getting shipped in boxes. Go the office manager and ask for them. They are there for the taking.


Ask the librarian if there are extra boxes from the masses of books that ship in and out.

Know someone who works retail?

Retailers always have extra boxes. Ask that friend you know who works there to see if they can get you some

Have a friend who works at a restaurant?

Guess what–there are supplies coming in all the time. Ask that friend who works there to commandeer some boxes for you.

Your Pharmacist

If you are like me you see the pharmacist, at the drug store a lot. Ask them if you can have some extra boxes

Pacrat Friend or relative

We all know someone that is a junk magnet. See if you can take some of those boxes off their hands. They probably won’t even know they are gone

Garage Sales

Hey why not. They have lots of stuff they brought out. They sold some. Now there are some boxes.

Your Facebook feed

Remember that community of people you see on your Facebook feed. Put out a post that asks them for boxes. For many of us this feed connects to people at our jobs, churches etc. Don’t overlook this resource.
