Pack Pillows not Books

Moving Tip: Well ok you have to pack both of course.  But in VERY different boxes. This is probably obvious to everyone but I'm passing this tip along because it's a mistake I made (seriously).  After college my wife and I were moving to our new home.  We had a LOT of books.  We found a couple of used pillow boxes in dumpsters behind stores.  Big boxes + lots of books = perfect solution.  At this point it probably goes without saying we pretty much couldn't move the boxes after they were loaded and taped shut.

So be wiser than I young Padawan.  Find a few nice sturdy boxes that are probably no larger than 16 x 16 x 16 and your move will go MUCH smoother than mine.
