Residential recipe

Directions for moving from one apartment to another

One (1) empty apartment (new)
One (1) full apartment (old)
One (1) car
Several empty boxes, bins and bags, with total storage space not to exceed 1/2 of the space that would be occupied by the contents of the full apartment
Packing tape, not to exceed 1/2 of the tape needed to seal all boxes
Packing labels, not to exceed 1/2 the number of boxes on hand

Pack items. Load car. Drive to new apartment. Unload car. Unpack. Drive to old apartment. Repeat until a) the old apartment is completely empty of books, dishes, clothes, stuffed animals, computers, random pieces of paper -- anything that is or ever was yours, and b) every square inch of space in the new apartment is occupied by items that may or may not belong there.
