I have some things I need to ship to the family. Looking for 18" x 18" (more or less) cardboard shipping cartons. Does anybody have any ideas where I might find some? Thanks.

My neighbors who are moving off island used the boxes they sell at Home Depot. They then shipped them via US postal service.

Aren't Priority Mail boxes free, so long as one ships priority?

I order my Priority boxes online, they send them to the house. No cost.

I recommend using a better quality box for USPS shipping from island. OfficeMax ones cost more, but they don't arrive all ripped open everywhere. I think the HD boxes are fine for storage or local moves, maybe lightweight things, but I do not recommend them for anything at all heavy or valuable. Been there, done dat.
