Well, I know what my wife would say if that showed up at the front door! And she's normally very supportive of my "stamping".

lol to all the answers

fyi, my wife and I were both guilty, so no divorce - but as to where all these boxes are going - oh boy

I got a nice US lot, but she bought the world - to answer what's in the boxes? Stamps - lots of stamps. It was a worldwide "accumulation" lot at Kelleher.

We're you there? I sat from 10 until 3:30 and all my lots were consecutive so I had 3 minutes of bidding and left! Fun fun I only bought 47 albums in 15 boxes.

For the record, the non-US stuff goes on stamps2go and frankly doesn't sell very well. So most of this is just getting organized and put in albums. What will probably come out in a few years are a number of much more organized lots with all the stamps she doesn't want. So look for a great buying opportunity in about a decade - lol.

Let's back up for a minute .......Here is what your going to need .

Buy two gallons of Ice Tea , clean up a area ,like a spare desk or the kitchen table . Go to the Dollar Store and purchase about 10 of those plastic "shoe box size" containers for sorting ,pick up a felt black marker and a roll of masking tape to label those record storage boxes and labels for those shoe boxes . Maybe even a few 9x12 large envelopes .

The first thing is spend the first day just looking into each box and get a general idea of what you received ,don't unpack ,just look and get a idea of what is there .

Take a break and get something to eat .now in your head you will have a better idea of what you have .


Now your ready to attack it . Empty a few boxes and place the contents on the floor . Now your ready to start writting labels and placing them on your boxes . Labels will read like this -------On paper Worldwide , off paper worldwide , U.S. MATERIAL , Glassines , album pages , covers , Better stuff to keep , Trash and a few others depending how you want to break it down .

Now your ready to sort and have fun .Drink some tea .

You forgot "Recognise your early mistake. Throw the iced tea away, then make a pot of proper tea".
