    I would like to buy egg cartons online and have been a little overwhelmed by the variety of prices and shipping costs. It varies so much and I can't tell the quality of each product.

    I would love some feedback regarding good deals and quality of cartons you may have bought. Thank you!

    I haven't every bought egg cartons as I've had enough people give me cartons that I probably have a lifetime supply. Everyone I sell eggs to, and family, always saves their egg cartons for me. But, I did come accross an egg carton site you might check out as you compare prices. It's www.eggboxes.com

    i too have never purchased them, but i have looked at them online. I wouldn't be able to tell you what a good price is BUT i bet if you told people at work or the people (if you sell your eggs) that purchase them to return them.... you'll be set. word of mouth works pretty good. the people i sell to @ work usually return them. and family members of mine that don't buy them usually give us a couple extras when they have them.
    good luck!

    eggboxes.com is where we always get ours. They have misprint specials. Right now they have 150 for $34.50 with free shipping. Haven't found any place cheaper.

    I put an ad on my local Freecycle saying I wanted egg cartons and was inundated with people ready to give them to me....

    Thank you. Eggboxes.com does have good prices.

    We are currently using used boxes, but if we choose to see "off site", Washington requires new boxes by law. So, we will need new ones if we choose to go that route.

    My feedstore sells them for 28 cents apiece.

    Imp- At one point the local grocery store checkers gave them to me for free. That store closed a couple years ago.
