    I am getting so many eggs daily from my girls I need to sell the extras. Where do I get egg cartons cheaply?

    One of our local hardware stores has a PILE of cartons. People just bring them in for the chicken farmers to use. They're free. Maybe you can set up something like that.

    I put the word out amongst friends and my SO's co-workers. I now have a box that a large desktop computer and monitor came in filled to the brim!
    I had to go back and tell everyone, no more cartons for awhile PLEASE!

    I got mine from the feed store. They buy eggs from the locals to sell back to city locals. The buyers bring the cartons back to keep costs down. I tell everyone I sell to that the eggs are 50 cents more if you don't bring the cartons back because then I'll have to buy them. Works really well. [​IMG]
