    Not sure how long it will last, was just there today. I also picked up some swim noodles from Target - buy 'em now before summer is over, the foam is great for padding corners!!!

    Makes me so mad what office supply places charge for bubble wrap.

    I get my bubble wrap from the office, sometimes in the form of bubble lined envelopes which aren't recyclable anyway. We have a can out by the recycling area for them.

    Used to get miles of heavy duty stuff from a furniture store (Furniture Row, but probably others too). They (manufacturers, many of whom are overseas) wrap huge pieces of furniture in it before putting them into a carton or crate. Anyone shipping a lot of stuff should buddy up to the manager, or go around back to the loading dock and ask the guys back there. They also get sheets of 1" Styrofoam. Tons of stuff.
