I live in Fridley, Minnesota. I'm looking for a lil help. I need some small package supplies like peanuts. I have looked everywhere. They very expensive to buy. I'm just looking for a cheaper way to get some. If anyone knows where, I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
Ask on facebook, craigslist and freecycle
i do not know how large Fridey is but maybe you have some of these places close by. Try calling these first and be sure to pick up when scheduled.
health food/vitamin stores, Pier One, candle stores, breakable/collectable items stores, optical/eye glass shops, also lots of supplies at furniture stores (ask inside).
When in a pinch I have bundled clean store bags (several bunched together inside one or more bags) and placed these around an item.
Always keep a free ad on freecycle:
I have away a bunch on Freecycle. Put a want ad. You can also visit a school or office. They probably have plenty to give away. I work in a school and got a lot of packing material and boxes for my children when they moved.
I get mine from a lady at my Michael's craft shop. They throw them away otherwise.
