If you're not too busy...
...could someone show me how to pack?

Here's a few ideas:

1. Invest in Rubbermaid bins. They're strong, they're durable. They have handles. They're good for books too.

2. Go to Sprawl Mart. Look at the label aisle, and they should have stickers that say things like "KITCHEN" "LIVING ROOM", etc... Use these lables to mark your bins. (And boxes too)

3. Sell stuff. Make a flyer of stuff you're getting rid of. Make copies, put it up on the bulletin boards at RIT.

4. Prioritize. Put important stuff, like, winter clothes into boxes that you pack last. You'll need those first when you get home.

5. Contact alexatrit. Offer him some of the junk you want to get rid of. Or post it to the Dumpsterdiving community. Tell them, that you're getting rid of stuff, but you want to save them the dive in this cold weather. Oh yeah... tell them where you're located at.

6. There is no rule 6.

7. No poofters!

Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks. I could have told myself most of that, but the problem is actually DOING it.

I do have some Rubbermaid bins, and they hold a few things, but not nearly enough.

What types of junk is alexatrit interested in? Old video cards? Pieces of metal? LCD ripped out of a dead calculator?

If they're dumpster divers, then probably anything leftover. :)
