According to CostHelper.com, typical costs for boxes run anywhere from $1 for a small box to $3.75 for an extra large one. However, specialty boxes (think: wardrobe boxes that allow you to store clothing on hangers and mirror boxes) cost much more. Packing paper runs $9 per pack on average, glass-packing kits cost $10 to $15 per box, and kitchen kits designed for packing glasses and dishes cost around $102.


A moving kit for a one-bedroom apartment runs $69-$90 and includes anywhere from 14 to 29 boxes. A moving kit for a two-bedroom house runs $178-$197 and contains 55-60 packing boxes. And a moving kit for a four-bedroom house runs $311-$404 and contains 86-119 boxes. (All kits also contain other supplies like packing tape, bubble wrap and markers.)


Places like U-Haul, Rent a Green Box and Bungo Box are good options if you need to rent some plastic moving boxes. Check out our roundup of the 8 of the best companies for plastic moving boxes.

Turns out, your local Walgreens, CVS, or even your mom-and-pop pharmacy could be an excellent destination for finding cardboard boxes at no cost. When it comes to Walgreens, for example, call your local store in advance to ask if they will save you a certain number of boxes from their next shipment, according to Neighbor.com. So long as you give the pharmacy notice, you should leave with an armful of boxes.


Your local recycling center is a prime location for scoring moving boxes of all kinds. Call ahead to make sure you can pick some up for yourself, or visit the center to learn about your options while dropping off your ready-to-recycle glass, plastic, and paper products.


Schools get a ton of deliveries, between foodstuffs, books, furniture, and supplies. Try connecting with the janitorial staff and offer to take boxes off their hands and save them the time of breaking them down for recycling.


Home Depot stores offer a broad selection of moving box sizes and kits. Shoppers also have the option of ordering online and having boxes shipped to their home or for free to their local Home Depot store. Anyone looking for detailed information regarding products benefit from picking up moving boxes from Home Depot. Use their store locator to find the closest Home Depot to you.


If you need to rent a truck, U-Haul also has boxes to help make your Moving Day a success. You can choose between buying moving kits and various other boxes online or in stores. U-Haul also carries specialty moving products, including disposable moisture absorbers and storage bags, if you need to pack items for long- or short-term storage.


Depending on what you are packing, you might need a wide variety of moving box shapes. In addition to finding this variety at Office Depot, you can also find the moving supplies you need to stay organized. Office Depot has an extensive collection of heavy-duty boxes with lids and handles for moving paperwork and other heavy items like books or plates. Find a store location near you.


Knowing where to buy moving boxes and how much they are going to cost helps you plan for a successful move. You can find moving kits, boxes in various sizes, and heavy-duty boxes to accomplish all of your packing. Some retailers sell boxes in bundles and kits, but you can also purchase single boxes.


You can find free moving boxes from your friends and family, in your office, at schools, from local shops, at big-box retailers, at clothing donation centers, and on Craigslist. U-Haul also has a box-exchange program for those who move and want to pass their moving boxes on to someone else.


Check to see if your neighbors or family need any boxes, bring them to your local recycling center, or donate them to your local charity. You can also create listings on BoxCycle.com and FreeCycle.com.

Remember when you're finished unpacking after your move that someone else would appreciate your free moving boxes. If you can't find someone who wants your free moving boxes then recycle them at your nearest recycling center.


Cardboard boxes can be reused numerous times if they're in good shape and have not gotten wet. Before packing and reusing, carefully examine them to ensure that the boxes are in good condition with no rips or soft spots.


If you have used up all your moving boxes, there are a number of items you already have on hand that can be used to pack your belongings in. Clothes hampers, laundry baskets, suitcases, and garbage bags all work well to pack stuff in when moving.


This was by no means a magical box, and it was merely an old Apple MacBook box. I was doing some decluttering in my apartment and came across my 2015 MacBook Air box, instead of throwing it away I decided I would try and sell it. After researching for maybe 5 minutes, I found a whole community on eBay that was buying empty Apple Boxes. I thought that this was a total joke, why would any logical person want to buy an empty box? I decided, well let's test this out. The day was Friday, and right before work I opened an eBay account, a Paypal account, snapped a few pictures of my empty box and listed it. A few days passed, and I forgot about the little experiment until I got an eBay alert on my phone on Monday night. The listing said, "ITEM SOLD."


I didn't even know what the next steps were, so I rushed on YouTube and searched "what to do when my eBay listing has sold" So I found out I had to go to a post office and send it out. As I was driving to the post office, which I hadn't been to in years, I started to analyze what had just happened. I couldn't believe it. I had sold an empty MacBook air box had sold for - $13.99, the buyer paid the shipping, and I paid eBay- $1.25 in fees. This got me thinking if I can sell an empty box, what else is out there?


This opened my eyes to the world of reselling. I was shocked and through the next few weeks started getting as many boxes to sell as possible I got them from friends, family, and stores that recycle (biggest tip, a lot of stores like whole foods have paper recycle boxes right outside of their stores). The more time I spent on learning better ways to market the boxes the more I started to sell.


I did do some research on my customers, and they were too resellers. They would take the boxes I supplied and put the corresponding products inside of the boxes. From this, they would gain an additional 20-40% increase in profit. Thus, it was a win for me to get rid of boxes and make some money. While a win for them because they would pair the box and product together for increased profit. 041b061a72
