Moving and Packing

We're moving!

And with moving, comes packing. Ugh. Not one of my favorite activities. We're not moving very far, just a few blocks down, so we've got one U-Haul, some furniture and some boxes. Also, because we don't have a lot of furniture, we dont really need to stack boxes. We also don't have too many boxes. So we thought, let's make the most of it and give our boxes some extra space.

The bigger boxes containing the tv and other fragilities will be boxed and sealed for cushioning. But we figured some of the others could remain top-open. This works exceptionally well for flatter boxes with less depth, like a Flat TV box, which can instantly get up to three times its original depth (see Picture #3 below). 

A simple tip for those moving, or when/if you move. Take the top open panels of your box and stick them together, standing up, with some tape. It'll give the box at least twice the depth needed for bigger things that don't have their own boxes or for stacking lots of easy access food while you're moving (and cleaning the kitchen).
