Cardboard availability
« on: December 05, 2012, 04:28:58 PM »
Went looking for cardboard for the garden. Best place is dollar general. They have it in racks outside and did it mind giving some.  All other big stores have it bound on pallets for recycling

I always go to the furniture store down the street. They have the big stuff. I sometimes find that big chain stores won't give it up but any store locally owned I've never had trouble taking all I wanted.

I love getting it from the mattress stores.  King size boxes!! It's great!  Thick too.
There is no $50 job that I can't do without a $100 worth of new tools.

Craigslist & freecycle often have cardboard moving boxes listed for free.

Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” –U.S. Senator Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
