You might ask around at some grocery stores, or convenience stores, if you think they'll even give you the time of day. I know at the convenience store I work at we let people part with boxes quite a bit. But in my experience we don't deal with any boxes quite that large.

You might just have to bite the bullet and pay for the packaging, I nearly croaked last year when I had to pay like 6 dollars for a box, but It couldn't be helped.
