where to find styrofoam sheets

updated tue 26 aug 03

Furniture stores. They regularly throw away big sheets, like 3 feet by
5 feet, which you can cut to fit and line your boxes. Like Chris, I
often line boxes with thick sheets. (It's not really Styrofoam, which
is a brand name, and is extruded. The white stuff used for ice coolers
and packing is "expanded".
