[aisle] Moving Books for New Carpet

I boxed a section at a time and labeled the boxes by section (FIC, NF, YA,
REF, etc) and 1 of __, 2 of __. When done with that section I would go back
and put in the total number (1 of 54, 2 of 54). Label boxes on as many
sides as possible by writing directly on the box (no tags that can fall
off). By pure luck all of the young adult ended up in the same type of box
so, on purpose, I used another type of box for non-fiction. When putting
things back everyone knew at a glance that all the flat, rectangular boxes
went to the non-fiction area and cube boxes went to young adult. Fiction
was everything else because I couldn't get that many boxes the same.
