Some places just feel like home 🙂
And even though moving back home, or into a dorm, or to a new beautiful house can be exciting… moving books is always a pain in the butt!
If you fill up a box with them, the box is too heavy and more likely to break open. Piled books get heavy quickly. So… how to move all these books?? Well, here’s how I made this process a bit easier!
Tips on Moving Books
1. Spread them out in boxes with lighter items
If you’re packing blankets, pillows, comforters, or other fairly light items, sprinkle in some of your favorite books. The box will get heavier, but not overly so.
2. Prioritize and downsize
Unfortunately, if you’re a book hoarder like me, you’ll have to prioritize which books to keep, and which books to give away. Try doing a yard sale, or turning in your books at local stores for cash or store credit. You can re-purchase your favorites later.
3. Consider the Kindle
You won’t know how much you’ll love your Kindle, until you have to move 🤣 When I moved, I got to keep 100% of my digital books, and that is awesome! Because I have gone through the discomfort of moving books in the past, I now also check my Kindle options when it comes to reading.
Hauling a ton of books is always a pain in the butt. It takes some prioritizing, but there are ways to make the process a tad easier 🙂
