It would be easy enough to simply dump my bookshelves and filing cabinets into the boxes and leave it at that. But since I have to handle everything, I might as well sort through it and get rid of stuff -- I know I have a lot of paper files that don't need to be kept any longer. Plus there's library books that could be returned, and my own books that I need to weed out and put some up for sale. It's not all going to happen today, obviously. I have limited time and energy for this sort of thing, especially since I've been doing so much sorting, purging, and reorganizing in my study at home as I try to get settled after our move. I'm ready to use my brain for other sorts of things.
So, the priorities for the rest of today:
finish sorting and clearing files and items from desk move superheavy 1950s metal desk to wall to make room for boxes purge filing cabinet 1 and box up the remaining files box up filing cabinet 2 (these are already archive and utility files, no need to purge) box up library books box up my books box up personal items
