    I am getting so many eggs that I want to donate or give to friends and family.
    No one returns the cartons either, Where is the cheapest place for egg cartons?

    I found some pretty cheap one's at and if you want them to return them to you buy some stickers that run in your printer and print up some of your own lables or get in touch with I belive her name is Adzngirls or something of this nature she makes and sells labels stick them on the carton and tell them if they return this carton they will get X amount off the next carton of eggs.
    Worked for a friend of mine so now I plan to do it as well.

    Good luck to you.

    When I know that I won't be getting my egg cartons back, I put my eggs in brown paper bags. I decorate them with stamps, (and or) stickers, put shredded paper inside so the eggs won't break, and punch 2 holes at the top and tie a ribbon to hold it together. I have had more complaments on my bags. For easter, I use spring-time stamps with different color inks, for example. I even put a "suprise" like a piece of home-aid candy if I have any available.

    I am currently looking for cartons too.
    Eggcartons. com is more expensive than .

    Eggcartonstore - .50 ea paper/.39 ea styro

    Egg carton source - .45 ea paper

    Ebay - .31 ea paper

    Egg boxes - .31 ea paper .67 ea paper/.63 ea styro.

    Just called TSC and theirs are .49 ea styro.

    So there you have it.

    If you find some cheaper please shoot me a PM. I'm looking for 100 at a time or more. I still have some from Eggcarton my first order and didn't pay .67 cents ea. that's for sure. They were rejects but still good and I did buy them long ago. Looks like prices went up.
