In the wondrous world of moving there subsists an excess of headaches, a duffel bag of mixed emotions, the blood- sweat-&- tears effect, and that dreaded myriad of empty cardboard moving boxes. There isn't all too much I can do to help you through all of these, but I'll try. Now for the headaches I'd suggest popping the recommended dosage of your favorite pain reliever. Personally Motrin seems to do the trick for this guy, but to-each-his-own. For the blood-sweet-&-tears issue you've got yourself into it really depends on how much we're talking about here. If it's a light flooding, just go ahead and pick yourself up some Band-Aids, a headband (preferable not white), and a box of Kleenex. Anything more than that, I'd hop in the car and get over to a hospital. As for those mixed emotions, I'm no psychiatrist so you're on your own for that.
Alright so now that you're all moved in & snuggled up on the couch listening to your in-home psychiatrist try to work out those deep mixed emotional issues you now face as you play with a half of bottle of Ibuprofen in your right hand and rip off a Band-Aid with that tissue in your left, you still have one thing to worry about…What are you going to do with all of those cardboard moving boxes?!
Whether you're moving to Deals Gap, North Carolina (unofficial population of 6) or you're moving to Manhattan, moving boxes will come in handy. The problem is that many people have no clue what to do with them afterwards and end up just tossing them out. Fret no more for I have comprised a list of things you can do with that cardboard.
