Try a liquor store, and/or friends who work in places with frequent delivery of supplies.

Try your local kosher supermarket, a liquor store, your workplace.... We got 90% of our boxes for free just from scrounging around. Also, if you have suitcases, pack into all of them.

I don't know your financial situation but boxes from Home Depot/Loews are not that expensive... a medium box is 1.23/box. That does add up but it's a fair supplement after scrounging.

Have you tried Craigslist because sometimes when people move they have loads of boxes left over. Your moving company will supply the big wardrobe boxes which makes hanging clothes so easy to pack and unpack because you just use the hangers.

In my experience it is very hard to move with grocery store boxes because they simply aren’t meant to transport household items.

There are box stores and you can price them. In my experience you need more boxes than you think you need but real moving boxes are great because they are specialized so you get ones for dishes specifically

Some sefarim stores save their boxes and will give to people who need. Perfect boxes for your own sefarim and books (not too big).

Call shoprite towards the end of the day and ask them if you could pick up some boxes. They will give you various sizes
You pick them up early morning after they restock the shelves, probably around 6 am
