    I get some great big boxes from the car seat installers at baby bunting near us. You could ask at Baby stores. They installers say they usually just end up putting the boxes in the recycling box at the end of the day, so if you get them at the right time you could get heaps of them for free. They are quite big boxes though, so you wouldn't want to put too much heavy stuff in them.

    With how often i move plastic boxes might be ideal. I'm starting to think i should just stop unpacking apart from the bare essentials.

    This^^^ Ask the staff when they restock, then drop in the next morning. You can pick up a roll of packing tape at the same time

    I went to a storage place and bought the second hand ones - they also buy them back from you.

    They're really good because they're big and really strong.

    Our supermarket does not give boxes away anymore either; they are a hazard because they clog up corridors, and also we get that many people ask to save some for them and then they never come in. There is simply not enough room to set them all aside. So we have a blanket rule now not to save them. Some staff members (especially day staff) are not aware of this, and occasionally will say that we can save them. Then us night staff have to be the one to tell them no. So the staff member you spoke to probably wasn't just 'being a b!tch', but was probably the one with the most up to date practice.

    Just wanted to point that out.
