    Not sure where to post this... where do folks buy their pulb/cardboard egg cartons? I'm looking for the least expensive place to get them. THANK YOU!

    ask friends and neighbors to save their cartons for you it's the cheapest way to go.

    Quote:True. I also get them from our CO-OP. They save them in the back and I just ask, and walk out w/a huge stack. They can't be recycled, so the eco-minded folks bring them in.

    I like the plastic ones that you can see through. I bought them at Murray McMurray BUT I didn't realize it at the time they are the type that break in half and make two half dozens. I don't usually sell/give away just six eggs and it makes the cartons flimsy.

    I think I paid around .55 each and that included shipping.

    PS: A lot of people think the plastic ones are wasteful but we re-use them, they are easy to clean and they are made out of recycled materials. PLUS you get to see your pretty eggs!
