I am having a packing related nightmare! Where has all this stuff come from and where is it supposed to go?! I've ran out of suitcases and boxes anda fhsdogihsdogihsdgoihdfg.

I need either someone with a magic wand or someone with some kind of creative packing ideas. I still have a whole wardrobe of clothes and loads of books and crap to somehow bind together so I can put them all into a van.

HELP ME, I AM GOING MENTAL.

Vacuum bags

Ask on Freecycle for cardboard boxes

throw out all your shoes except two pairs-thats all a normal person(i.e. a man) requires anyways-this leaves plenty room for everything else.

Vacuum bags



It's not really the space that's the issue, just the fact I have nothing to put anything in. I need normal bags, not even vacuum bags. I don't want to put things in black bags.

But then I might have to meet some mental people...what if someone tries to put me in a box?!

Why do you assume I have crap?! It's all very important things. My shoes are especially important...

My pound shop sells these huge plastic laundry bags for £1 each. A few of those should solve your packing problem.

Yes! I need those!

We don't have a pound shop here. I live in the Cotswolds, darling. I'd have to go and pay £10 for the equivalent in Laura Ashley or something.

Also the next issue is me on the roads in a transit van.

Are you moving in with Micoo?

I can't tell you where I'm moving to. Otherwise McVB1 will find out and then I'll have to move again.

nudez first.
there must be some shop nearby that sells boxes, bags or plastic containers. a tesco within a few miles surely ?

You can buy boxes off removal companies and then keep them. I did that a few years ago when i moved 6 times in 18months!!

But I'm not using a removal company, I'm getting a van and removing myself. I don't want any jokes about removing me from hukd either.

I'm going to roll down both the windows of the van, stick my arm out, burp and whistle at girls out of the window. Then I'm going to fill the front window up with pasty wrappers and empty coke bottles. I'll be professional about it.

I guess I could do this with all my clothes, but I'm not sure about dragging it across the floor! I need some slaves.

Poundland opens in a few weeks haha

Valuehouse next to BlockBuster has smallish boxes, or if you go in Tesco, you might be able to get hold of their card board boxes from the crisps (biggest boxes they get delivered).

Don't need to use the removal company if you buy boxes off them. Or a storage place would sell them too. Somewhere like the Big Yellow Storage company....they sell all kinds of packing materials.

Again...I live in the middle of the country. I think I'll just get a load of slaves and they can carry a few things each, then I'll load them all into the back of the van and take them with me. Seems like the sensible option.

Urgh the feelings mutual brah. Its quite funny all the northern poorness is heading straight for you though.

AF, are you near to Swindon? My geography is poor, and all I know is that it's also in the Cotswolds.
