wes: Moving Cartons - Portland Metro Ara - 05/11/07 03:24 AM
So you are moving and running short of cartons, your friends have given all they have, other movers have beat you to the free cartons on CraigsList, and you don't want to pay the prices for new cartons at the moving and storage companies.
