    Does anyone work in a place that has some boxes kicking around that we could grab? :x:

    I know most places compact them pretty much as soon as they are emptied :happysad:

    Sobeys, ask for some Big 8 water boxes. They're really strong.

    Thats awesome Tanya! I'm in the process right now of packing up what I don't need in the next week. I'm not exactly sure how many more I'll need at the moment.. I will probably have a better idea later today or tomorrow

    The HFX mall after hours. All the stores put their boxes outside their stores to be picked up by maintenance.

    I'm on the hunt again.. :lol:

    Picked up some from the LC (but they're just wine boxes, so not really the size we need)
    the boxes I got from Sobeys were smallish aswell.. :(

    I think I must ust go on the wrong days or something.. :happysad:

    Janet, can you find a way out to Fall River? I just broke down some boxes, but they're easy to reassemble (they're not cut apart).

    I think I could! (mind you, I justk now how to get to the sobeys area... I may get lost if I need to get too deep into fall river... haha)

    But Greg knows the area, so if you were able to hold onto them tonight, I imagine he'll be able to get them!
