    You used to be able to buy rolls of blank newprint at The Food Bank for really cheap and they would go a long way.

    What about trying The London Free Press? Actually, I think that's where the food bank get it!

    Good luck!

    I second that! We used to buy it at the Food Bank for our science activities at work but I'm not sure if they still do it. I think it was $5 for the 'end of a roll'

    We bought rolls at the food bank $2 per roll but there is not much on the roll. We have just unpacked so if you pm me you can come and pick up what I used - it is all cut into about 30" pieces and now folded neatly in a clear garbage bag. It is most of what I had (still a few boxes left to unpack). I am in Southwest London area

    How about the dollar store, they have bubble wrap too. We used newspaper and stuck it in a recycling bag when we unpacked. Tissue paper works/ paper towels. If you have lots of towels/teatowel. Use them to wrap things in and then your towels are packed away too.

    I'm still unpacking items, I used newpaper for my fragiles, and once I unpacked everything, I flattened the paper and left it in the boxes........most have been taken but I'll have a couple more shortly if you're interested. PM me is you are interested in some. I don't want these boxes lying around whatsoever, nor the paper!
