I buy 36 x 12 x 4 boxes in bulk - 20 for $41.52 at http://www.amazon.com/36x12x4-Shipping-Boxes-20-Count/dp/B0087DJZ6W.

I don't think they sell single boxes.

I hoard boxes from work whenever I get the chance. A local small foreign auto repair guy also has larger boxes & peanuts his parts come in and he prefers people to take them to his putting them in a dumpster.I also save boxes from what other people send me (I have a trade imbalance).

I HAVE also purchased boxes in flat bundles from ULine. They are by no means the only source of bulk boxes, but it is easy to browse their catalog or website and choose the most economical ones - they have some common sizes that are a lot cheaper than the uncommon ones...Usually I get 25-packs of small boxes, and 15-packs of larger ones, less frequently. I don't think you can buy individual boxes from them, but it's much cheaper than shipping service stores which are shocking in comparison,

Lastly, USPS.com will send you boxed bundles of flat Priority Mail boxes at no cost, with the legal constraint that they are to be used for the service intended. They have a variety of sizes the local USPS branches do not. Flat Rate is probably the only great deal in the Priority Mail menu of rates. There is an oddball size called Regional Rate A that is surprisingly cheap. There are also larger Regional Rate B and C boxes that are large enough they don't seem like a bargain, but what is when it comes to shipping these days?

I'll give these ideas a try , thanks, Sonny
