When it comes to packing, I always remember those years when my family and I used to live in rental apartments and we had to move to a new place every third, second or even single year due to the fluctuations of the prices or other issues.
My father always had the best ideas for the most efficient layout of stuff inside the boxes and also for wrapping the boxes tight with strings and applying various types of nuts. I can clearly recall his posture and his hands holding the boxes, the noise of slipping string on the cardboard and the torn or crumpled edges of the box under the pressure of his hands.
