Moving Boxes

Tomorrow (today?)I start moving from my apartment into a house. I'm exhausted so I went to bed early. I slept for a little more than an hour and now I'm wide awake and all wound up at 3am. I gave up and got out of bed and packed my last empty boxes.

It is so hard to get boxes. I used to go to Boarders and they would load me up in a trip or two with the awesome book boxes with folding snap lids and handles. Now I have to go to place to place and ask multiple times.

"Do you have any boxes?"
"Sorry we don't have any. Try tomorrow at two."
"Are you sure you don't have any now?"
"They would be broken down."
"I don't mind, will you please look?"
...eye rolls and sighs...

Then they look and they have lots of boxes and they aren't broken down. They ask how many I want. I answer "As many as I can have. All of them." and then they bring me out three. I ask for more and get one more. Oh, and when I come back the next day at two there are still no boxes.

I've started going to the grocery store at 11:30 at night while they are unpacking and practically snatching them out of the stocker's hands. I can get about 10 a night that way. I would think they would be a great time to get lots but still it's hard to get them to let go.

Boxes are somehow important in moving out, especially if don’t have containers and such. Anyway, it seems like you had a rough time getting those boxes, and I think asking for them would be very difficult. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. All the best!
