Hey :) I'm new here and thought I'd like to contribute something that I didn't even know about until I got a job at Volde-Mart. I looked through the memories and didn't see this, so I hope I'm not repeating something. If you live near a 24hr Wal-Mart, and you need boxes for yet another move to a more affordable apartment, here's a tip: Around 1 or so in the morning (earlier if you want, but not before 11 pm), drive down to the Wal-Mart and look for 3rd shifters unloading pallets of freight. Ask if you can snag some of the empty, collapsed boxes :) Chances are, you can. Just watch out- you can't snag 'break packs' and make sure you don't grab any. The store gets credit for returning those to the manufacturers. Regular boxes, though, are fair game! The reason you want to try and go at 1-2 am is because earlier means that they may not have that many boxes empty, which could make the trip a waste of gas. If you go more towards 4-5 am, they may have already taken the boxes to the baler. Now, I don't know if you can do this at a Wal-Mart that's not 24 hrs, but you could always go in and ask! :) Far as I know, Wal-Mart doesn't really lose anything by letting people take empty cardboard boxes from worked pallets. And it's a whole lot cheaper than buying the boxes from the stationary aisle. Hope I helped!
