I want to get some cardboard boxes (preferably all one color, but not cardboard color!) in different sizes (like CD storage size, paper storage size, etc) to organize my craft supplies. The only place I've been able to find them is at IKEA...and we live nowhere near an IKEA and they don't ship them. Does anyone know where I could find something like this?

I have seen them at The Container Store.

You can also try some moving companies or moving supply companies. I seem to recall a company or two who used "fancy" boxes.

Also, do you know anyone who lives near an Ikea and would be willing to purchase for you and ship? Are you willing to pay the shipping and give that job to someone?

I buy file folder size at staples. 3 boxes for $6 or something close. You can also buy boxes at most mini storage companies. The ones at staples are white, and it's hit & miss which mini storage companies offer white and which offer brown. You could always make a craft project out of brown ones and do some rubber stamping.
