..where can I get cheap ones? :rolleyes: I want to redecorate my room so have to box a load of stuff. Argos has around 5 boxes for like £15 that seems pretty expensive to me.

Try your local supermarket. They often have spare cardboard boxes which they'll give you for free.

When we moved house we just got the boxes from the end of the tills in Tesco and Lidil
Lidil was the best actually :yy:

just temporarily throw all your stuff into a corner of somebody elses room, don't see why you need to bother with boxes

Ask the person stacking the crisps for some big empty boxes, or to keep some for you later. Also wines are packaged in thicker boxes.

As people have said supermarkets can sometimes give them to you. At supermarkets near where I live they used to pile them up near the checkouts for people to take but have stopped - probably because of the fire hazard. You could still ask at their customer services though.

Removal and self-storage firms sell them. If you have a self-service warehouse near you it is likely they will have a shop.

If you are starting university in the near future I seriously recommend getting some decent boxes anyway as you will likely end up moving rooms a few times. I used a combination of cardboard, plastic stackable and plastic folding boxes - all have their advantages and disadvantages!
