    Hello everyone!

    Please help me find the best place to buy egg cartons. Or who in your area would have free, that are maybe being thrown away?

    Thanks!

    Ebay is the quickest and easiest

    I use eggboxes.com. Boxes were shipped out right away, UPS I think?, and got here very quick. I ordered the misprinted paper cartons.

    since I am not going to sell eggs and am really not worried about getting a disease from used cartons

    I just put a sign up or email folks (at work, friends and family) when I need them

    (I use them to grow seedlings as well)

    you will get as many as you need just putting the word out to folks they are easy and not messy to keep for you they just stack up so everyone is willing to give them to me when I ask

    If you're not worried about what they say on them, just tell a few people you're looking for them. In time you'll have hundreds more than you'd ever use...[​IMG]

    Quote:This is true! Also my customers get a discount if they return the cartons. So I never run out!
