Storing books

Recommended Posts

We are moving and I’m in sorta that prepping phase. Our new house will be 500 sq ft smaller so I’m thinking we might need to look at a storage type situation for the jillions of books we own. I’ve pared down, but with six kids ages 13-4, I have to keep the picture books AND the beginning readers AND the early chapter books AND the middle grade books, etc. 

I believe we can put our historical fiction that’s not in rotation in boxes. Any other solutions? 

Also, which boxes or crates are best? I don’t want them too heavy, but I do want sturdy.

If I was storing in a dry, climate-controlled environment and needed to keep costs down, I might just go with book-size moving boxes with handles. They also come in a heavier weight version. The size is nice because you can load it with hardback books and still lift it. Any bigger and it quickly gets too heavy. Also, they stack well.

This really depends on climate/environment conditions.
