    We just received our order from eggcartons.com and am very pleased with it. We do not sell our eggs as most people around here have chickens and the ones that don't do not want to buy them We have 22 chickens and get quite a few eggs. Most of the eggs go to our family but there is always a shortage of egg cartons even though we recycle them . I found eggcartons.com on another forum and got a catalog They sell misprinted eggcartons 12 or 18 They come 200 to a pack and the 18 sell for 29.95 I ordered them as I do not care whose name is one the box. I was very impressed I did not know what to expect but fthey look fine you cant tell they are misprinted at all. This is an inexpensive way to get extra egg crate if you need them

    Here's the other place that sells the mis-prints:
    http://www.eggboxes.com/

    I was at the point of ready to order a bunch from them but decided to have my wife post on craigslist to trade fresh eggs for cartons (I think we offered a dozen eggs for 6 cartons)?

    Anyway, once the word got out that we needed cartons people just started to drop them off... not even wanting eggs. I was also bringing eggs into work and people wanted to start buying them. Co-workers asked if I wanted any cartons and I said, "I sure do."

    Well, like Manna from Heaven we were abundantly blessed with a TON of cartons... ask and ye shall receive!

    Yes, I believe they are in Massachusetts. You should all do what I have done and they are free except I give the people a dozen eggs for them.
    www.freecycle.com Find your state, area, etc. and post an ad looking for empty egg cartons with the offer of free fresh eggs. I have more egg cartons than I know what to do with![​IMG]

    i get my egg cartons from family and friends. everyone saving them for us when the girls start to lay. In about a month i think.
    manchaug is about 6 miles away from me about, small old mill town. manchaug is one of the many indian names given to things and sub towns around the blackstone valley. we also have a lake called and I know i will spell it wrong but here goes. Lake chargoggagogmanchaugoggchabunagongamog in Webster. Webster is going to the dogs but the lake is pretty. Erin M
