Highly recommend you find out when your local liquor store puts theirs out on the curb.  Those boxes tend to be the right size and strength for moving.

Check your local public school on recycling night. The school near me puts a ton of cardboard boxes on the curb.

BJ's has tons of them. I went there yesterday at about 9 AM and there were piles near the checkout.  I don't know what their cycle is for delivery and trash, but they were there yesterday.

So... we've started packing in earnest and we went thru all those boxes really fast (thank you btw)! And damn it, we have lots more stuff. Anyone got more boxes? Even one or two, we'll take them. Seriously.




Those fresh direct ones are really great....

Wow, well this thread is quite a trip down memory lane...


Anyway. We need your boxes! Give them to us! Please?

Thanks again everyone so much for helping with your boxes, your backs and your big wheels.

Now . . . who wants all these boxes?  We've got enough boxes to make a whole hobo shantytown out of em. Enough to make the world's largest origami crane.

Hell, we've got enough cardboard to build our own Grove Pointy.

And not only that, the very nice couple above us still have a giant pile of boxes in their hallway from when they moved in. So if you're moving soon, or if you've just got some kind of corrugation fetish, PM Fang or me for more info.

Come and get em!

Thanks so much to everyone who donated their boxes (and backs) to helping us move out of 515.

Fang and I are settling in nicely, and can't wait to have everyone over for a housewarming party.

In the meantime, we've posted this notice to avoid any repeat problems from the last place:

And more boxes! If people have more boxes we want them!

Why?  Are you thinking of adding a second story to your new place at 537 5th St?

Yes.

Thanks!

That would be fantastic. I'm sure they'll get used again for that same purpose.  ;D

I have 3 medium size boxes in here now, they're yours if you want them.  They're the ones that my comics come in so I hope they're big enough

All your cardboard boxes are belong to us.

Actually this might give me incentive to empty the last remaining boxes of stuff in my place and hand them over.  I'll see what I can do asap!

Well kids, it's that time of year again, we are once again moving in two weeks and once again need as many boxes as you can give. We have even more crap then last year. It just keeps happening, but people keep wanting to sell me cameras, I can't help it!


Also, if anyone has recently purchased a new SUV type vehicle and would like to drive us and our boxes around the corner we'd gladly appreciate it.  ;)

Fancy snacks again for all volunteers!


Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, we're planning on doing the same thing we did last year and pass along the boxes to someone else looking to move when we are done. Recycling! It's not just something the cool kids do!

Thanks very much Jenny and everyone else who has helped and donated boxes and their cars and such. But we are doing the big move next Saturday, so if anyone is free next Saturday... it'll be a lovely afternoon and a balmy 45 degrees. And think of all the snacks you'll get in return!  ;D

Good luck with the move tomorrow!  I would offer my services but I am bossy and opinionated and too Type A and would take over the process and put all your stuff where I think it should go and then get mad if you didn't agree and then you would all see my true colors and it's too early in the year to start burning bridges...

...so...

I will celebrate with you tomorrow night instead.

Welcome to The VVP, kids!

So, who gave you boxes so far? WHO?  >:D


Come on now, we don't want to turn this into a competition. Unless we do in which case I will be keeping tally and there will be a prize for the winner.
