Personal Archiving 2

All personal collections tell a story. We surround ourselves with things that we find pleasing, things that commemorate personal achievements, and memories of people and experiences long ago. I’ll be moving again soon, and it’s now time to ‘archivally rehouse’ my life into boxes- some to be stored, and others to continue the story that I’d like to tell. Let’s see if  Meissner and Greene can help:

Less Process, More Product:
-Doubles are discarded
-Subject/Material (or room)-level description, not Item-level description
-If an item can be found elsewhere (replaced) without major searching or expense, then they are discarded

How do you attempt to pack up a life’s worth of collections? By material? By use? By room? By robot design?
