    I just wanted to pass along something I learned the other day - our local recycling center saves all of their styrofoam egg cartons that come in for recycling and sells them for $3 for 100. I don't know if this is the norm or not but it would certainly be worth a call to your local recycling center. Not only are you getting cheap egg cartons, but you aren't contributing toward more landfill waste.

    The ones at the recycling center I go turn have been run through the sterilizer and are all in good shape. They keep them specifically for people who want to use them to sell eggs.
