    If you were moving house... and were packing this weekend...

    .....how many rolls of birthday/christmas wrapping paper would you consider acceptable to move house with?

    My count was zero.. ie they were all going in the recycling bin as they don't fit any cardboard box and will get smashed up

    but there are other people in my house with other ... expectations.....

    None - as you will have bought and wrapped your presents already.

    (alternatively, you take them in the car as the last things to pack and the first things to come out)

    Don't even get me started... The amount of crap we have in our 'lived in' looking house drives me mental.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    If rolls of wrapping paper is a significant problem with the move, then well done on a smooth move so far

    We have a (never used for rubbish) dustbin full of wrapping paper. I think the dustbin just went on the truck as-is.
