    My car has turned in to a storage unit... Not to happy about it but I doubt we will be moving the stuff out until this summer.
    20 PVC pipes hanging out the passenger window while it was snowing going 55 mph was the last thing I tried to transport. I though for sure my window was going to break.

    People around here seem to use the paper for a lot of things, but I will check craigslist too.

    Mine wouldn't eat the TSC stuff either. Once you use more than 1/2 of the bag, all it is is dust! If you have a horse or cow feed store nearby, try there. The feed hay for horses is great for rabbits. They LOVE it, and its great for nests, too.

    Waste is why I used horse hay cubes instead for the rabbits. They ate most of it, tiny end fell through floor. They make different types of cubes.

    Am fortune we make our own grass hay for the horses and bunnies, not Timothy but ok stuff. And yes they will waste it no matter. Some rabbits prefer pellets to hay and vice versa. I feed pellets am, hay pm. Much less waste of both.
