I'm in India where we don't have U-Haul or Ikea for new boxes. I asked the manager at the local supermarket outlet and was offered a variety of cartons in various sizes. My boyfriend was incensed because when he asked earlier they told him they recycled their boxes for cash.

In India, you can lean on your landlord to repaint before you move in (labor and supplies are cheap). However it's annoying if you're moving in anywhere between June to September because the landlord can use the excuse of the monsoons to put off doing the job (allegedly the paint doesn't dry well because of the high humidity and leads to cracks in the damp walls). Ours promised us he would do it in January but by then we had been living in the apartment for 4 months and were too lazy to empty rooms and deal with fumes and painters traipsing through the house. Hiring a guy for a day to sand, prime and paint costs about $15 and sometimes he comes with his own rollers, brushes etc.
