    I bought some bubblewrap bags that you can tear off a piece of tape and seal them from ULINE. I think a 1000 bags were $84. It makes the job alot easier. [​IMG]

    I buy the big 200' roll of bubble wrap from Staples. It's around $20, and I can wrap 400 eggs out of it. I use a LOT of bubble wrap per egg (a 6" X 12" piece for each egg).

    I get mine from walmart, it's about $12 for 100 sq. ft. I have checked on ebay, and all the ones I found with the same amount has been more. If you were to buy a larger amount, then ebay would probably be the way to go, if you don't mind waiting for it.

    Sam's club has a box of 3/16" bubble wrap 240' X 12" (240 Square Foot), I think it was 15 bucks.... maybe 18.

    I use a lot of bubblewrap for shipping Sugar Eggs (not the real thing, but about as fragile [​IMG]) and I've found the best deal to be at Sam's Club unless you need an insanely large amount.

    I get the big roll, it is 240 sq. feet perforated every 12 inches, and it costs about $13.

    You can always ask a local business to save some for you as well-I know someone who requests it from the local drugstore and dollar store, and they set it aside for her instead of tossing it as they unpack fragile merch. Good luck!

    Good idea! I would have never thought of that! And man, I wish there was a Sam's around here! [​IMG]
