Cheapest packing supplies/boxes

Wheres the cheapest place to get packing supplies and boxes?

UPS charges like 6$ for a roll of bubble wrap, kinda on the high side I think?

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

not sure for bubble wrap but for boxes and stuff uhaul was reasonable. You can also take back what you don't use and get a refund.

Target has bubble wrap pretty cheap....and ask one of the associates for boxes. I work at Target and we do it all the time for customers.

Don't need that much

Just need to send out my fairings, and I wanted to wrap them up nicely so UPS can't destroy them in the process.

Craiglist always has moving boxes listed in the "Free" section.

Just a thought.

Go to the warehouse at work and tell your shipping guy you need some packing supplies. Of course if you have no shipping dept at work this makes it more difficult. If you must pay for it I would think OfficeMax or one of those big box office supply stores are the best bet. For boxes you can always ask the manager at your local supermarket, they just breakdown the boxes and put them in a compactor anyhow. They would be happy to give you the boxes so they won't have to deal with them.
