If you’re a bookworm, you probably understand that struggle of packing and moving books when it comes time to move. Even if you’re not a big book fan, you likely know that books are heavy—about 3 or 4 books can weigh you down and could be hard to carry in a bag. Here are some tips for packing books, so they don’t weigh down your whole trip.
Tips for Packing Books
Do some “spring cleaning”
The best part about books is that they are not fragile by any means, so you can pack a lot at a time. The problem is, however, it doesn’t take much for a bag of books to become heavy. As we always say, the best way to pack efficiently is to get rid of a bunch of stuff. Surely, you can find some books you’ve read dozens of times, right? Well, you might want to consider tossing those ones.
Sort your books
With the whole idea of tossing some books established, here’s a good way to sort those books. First of all, you should have two piles of books: one pile is for books you want to keep, the other is for those you are going to trash. It may be hard to choose, but make sure these piles are at least evenly sized.
Gather up supplies
While packing books may not require much special treatment, since books are rather durable, they still should be packed with a bit of care That means gathering up the packing supplies you’d normally use for most of your other things. Packing paper, boxes, tape, and bubble wrap or newspapers.
Use a suitcase
If you don’t want to use boxes to pack and transport your books, you should consider using a suitcase. A suitcase, if not being packed with clothing is actually a perfect solution. That’s because it does a good job of holding the heavy books and is less susceptible to damage.
