Until the advent of cardboard made boxes a reality, humans were forced to place all deliverables into the mouths of pack mules and hope that they didn't get hungry. Embrace modern packing methods with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of packing and moving supplies at The UPS Store in West St. Paul.
Known for being quick and convenient, The UPS Store can help bundle important packages or entire households into sturdy, snug containers. The sizes of UPS's durable shipping boxes range from jewelry box to jukebox ($1.75 for a 6"x6"x6" box to $14.95 for a 15"x15"x48" box), making it easy to delight far-off loved ones with tokens of affection or frustrate enemies with a package containing 12 nested boxes. Larger, lighter-weight moving boxes ($3.30–$7.29) build strength with an array of tape ($1.99–$7.99), bubble wrap ($2.95+), and packing peanuts ($3.49 for one cubic ft., $18.99 for six cubic ft.). The UPS Store's on-site packaging experts gladly assess moving and shipping needs, dishing out advice on the number of boxes one might need or the best way to wrap one's extensive collection of Harry Caray snow globes. Cardboard artisans can also custom-build a box in virtually any size for $25 plus the cost of materials.
