Moving out...

Moving out is one of the most tiresome/exciting things about living in America. The chore presents several interesting optimization issues too. Given a certain amount of junk (stuff/personal belongings with economical/sentimental value) how best can you fit them in a given number of boxes (of varying shapes and dimensions depending on your preference and resources). There's a problem for the optimizers. Technical overtures aside, moving also allows you to take stock of all the junk you were reluctant to throw away the first time you saw it.
