Default Bottle Boxes

Does anyone know where I can get the cardboard boxes that you get when you order bottles of off websites such as AHS? I am talking about the ones that hold 24 bottles per box. One of mine broke due to my dumb handling, and I have acquired many more recycled bottles that I would like to store in one place. Thanks for the help!

Make friends with someone who works at a bar. You will get thousands.

Also if it helps, milk crates hold 25 bottles pretty much perfectly.

Never thought about milk crates, but how well do they hold 24? lol My OCD wouldn't allow me to store 25 as even though 25 is a nice round number, its not divisible by 6.....

I get all my bottles from my LHBS. Just ask them if you can sort through their returnables. I pay $0.10 a bottle and get the cases to carry them for free. I'll bet most places would let you do this if you asked.

I bought some boxes from Staples that hold 30 bottles. These are the boxes that are used for document storage.

30 is divisible by 6.

Just a thought...

Ask a liquor store for their boxes. They'll hold 4 x sixers (with the 6 pack carriers). I've got a couple of those, and those are by far my favorite ones.

30 IS divisible by 6, that I can do lol. Will go check Staples some day. The liquor store I frequent here in town is very friendly, so I will see what they can do as well.
