|Half-Filled a Box

Today (Tuesday), I actually used some stuff I'd set up months ago. I cut up the sheet of paper with "BOX #1" printed on it five times in big letters & taped one to each side of the box (not counting the bottom cuz that would be dumb).
Then I filled it with zombie books because I have a lot of them & I thought "Hey, how cool would it be if I could FIND my damned zombie books when I want to?" and I wrote down the author (or editor), title, publisher, & year on one of the little spreadsheets I'd thrown together, printed, and clipped to a clip board (also months ago).
Turns out I don't have the patience to write down the ISBN (didn't think I would, but thought I'd give it a shot in case it was in my realm of insanity), but I did write down whether it was hard or softcover & whether it was an anthology.
I'm adding "spreadsheet" to my tags to remind myself to ditch the ISBN column & make the title and the publisher columns wider. Maybe add a skinny little SC/HC column.
I didn't have enough zombie books to fill the box, but I threw in a couple of other anthologies as well. Still not full, but I got bored & my 15 minutes were up.
Later, I slammed my shin into the damn thing in the dark. So I have a nice, achey reminder of a job well done.
