There are always people selling or giving away moving boxes on Craigslist in our area. Much be worth the effort to check it out.

If cardboard is OK with you, check in the dumpster behind your neighborhood grocery or liquor store........

If you are looking for big plastic ones, Dollar General has a bunch for 50% off at my store. Don't know if it's all of them though.

CVS had these for %90 off so not sure if they still have any, but also my freecycle group in my town usually see a lot of people giving away moving boxes.

I saw some 18 gal plastic containers @ Lowes that are on clearance but forgot to check the price. With the $10/$50 coupon, these may come up very cheap if you need lots of them. call your Lowes first because clearance may be YMMV.

For plastic:
See if anyone has the Xmas Containers still left, although Green & Red very sturdy.
A Mgr. told me they will keep extra stock from year to year, if they do not all sell out. So you may get a great bargain.
Lowes just had a clearance on Sterlite Containers.
Home Depot has a section as well, and Target.
For small containers try Big Lots, or (I believe Bette mentioned) Dollar General

Cardboard:
This may sound odd. But the cleanest card board boxes are the ones that apples are shipped in to the grocery store. There are liners
inside and the boxes usually have a coating of wax. The lids are quite sturdy.
If you are shipping or storing clothing, I would place the items inside a glad bag (inside of the box) to stay fresh & clean.
There is an open forum where we reside, and people that have just moved in post that they have boxes and packing materials free for the pick up.
Whatever you pack, place a few of the little bead freshness packets that will absorb any extra moisture.
Hope this helps...Happy packing!

I almost forgot I received a Buy 3 get 1 Free from Sterlite.
Check out the websites of both Sterlite, Tupperware and Rough.

IDEA:
And what about the storage bins for childrens toys? You may be able to get a few of these at a garage sale or childrens resale shop.

The liquor boxes are excellent! We have used them several times when we have moved and they are very sturdy! They don't want any possibilities of the Liquid $$'s being wasted!!
