Today I shipped off 6 books I even had a conversation about it with the post office cashier. She wondered why I was sending all these different books to different address and I told her. Within the next week or so I should have a total of 11 credits for my future book requests on PaperbackSwap. For now I am looking forward to finishing this decluttering of books. I’ve got a total of 4 boxes of books. Two of which I am keeping and another two of ones I am not.
First Box: Books I intend on reading in the next two months.
Second Box: Books I intend to keep because I love them or ones that I intend on reading but know I won’t get to until later
Third and Fourth Box: Books that I am willing to trade away. If you’re a member as well here is a link to my PaperbackSwap profile: http://shawie.paperbackswap.com/profile/
So the technique I used to organize my books in boxes is I first stacked all of my books (already decided which ones to keep and which ones not to keep) Placed all of the tallest ones at the bottom and the shortest ones to the top. I layers the books and they fit like I was playing Tetris or something! Doing this allowed me to place all of them in boxes and I am able to see in a glance the book titles.
