Moving

 

The problem with moving from one home to a new one is – packing, of course.

We’re moving in about a month. That gives me 30 days to pack up everything, including 1,200* books or so. I’ll need to label the book boxes so I keep Mt. Bookpile separate from those I’ve read. I’ll want to keep genres together because that’s how I shelve the paperbacks. The hardbacks are partially within genres, but the rest are in alpha by author.

One of the good things about moving is that I’ll gain a couple more book shelves. The person I live with has some in storage that he’ll take out when we move. I believe there’s plenty of wall space at our new place for them. That means I can take them out of the boxes and bags I used as a temporary solution when my daughter took a shelf when she moved to her new place in June. That also means I should have extra shelf space again. Currently what I do have is overflowing…

My DVD’s were easy to pack. They’re light. I was able to put them into shopping bags with handles. Many of my clothes will go into suitcases that sit on the shelf empty. The cats will go in their carriers. But everything else requires boxes. I’d better go find more…
