my suggestion for moving boxes is to go to an accountant or lawyer friend and ask them to keep their photocopy paper boxes. Alternatively, call up Bankers Hall or one of the other downtown office buildings and ask their management if you could get the photocopy paper boxes before they are recycled one evening.
They are the perfect size so that you do not over fill them and make them too heavy. They are also easily stacked and well put together. Boxes from the liquor store or safeway are often dirty, wet, or reek. they are irregular sizes and become problems when loading or unloading.
We have moved twice in the past 5 years and highly recommend the photocopy paper boxes.

The Canadian Tire in Shawnessy has a bin near the front with a bunch of boxes they are giving away.

Do you know of anyone that works retail? I always use boxes from when I do stock at work.
I'd save you some from my work, but today is my last day before I go on maternity leave :(

How soon would you need them? I might have too many boxes for my move.

Our last move we went to Winners on Macleod and Heritage and grabbed dozens from their cardboard recycling bin that's to the left of their front entrance. Went back three times for more as they are all nicely flattened and are mostly boxes that held clothing etc.
