The last time I moved I made a pact. I will never use cardboard boxes again. I have more class than that. The movers must have been mortified. But even I, a connoisseur of the finer things in life, has to admit that cardboard boxes are the practical way to go. They’re lighter than trunks and definitly cheaper.
X-Tape makes cardboard boxes appear to have good ole strong hinges. The illusion is quite realistic, though I must disclaim that I DO have a glass or two of brandy in my system.
