    I am sure you can get legally creative with the expenses pertaining to your business. ;)

    Odd question - where do you get all your boxes for shipping at? I love the selling part on ebay but hate finding boxes without going out and spending too much on new ones. :confused:

    USPS.com

    the Post Office will send you (for FREE) as many Priority Mail boxes you can use

    I will often get 500 at a time of various sizes

    smaller boxes for first class parts are more difficult, luckily I have ins with a lot of my buddys that work at places where they accumulate small boxes (smaller than a shoebox)

    for bigger boxes I have another buddy that owns a local injection molding facilities so his cardboard dumpster is my cardboard dumpster

    plus I have friends that work at my local Lowe's...they will save cardboard for me as well if I need huge boxes
