in reply to The Best fit by capacity of Box

Are the books all the same size? Do each of the schools order at least 400 books?

If not, I'd buy some different boxes.

Sort them by amount, divide each amount by 400. (If the box has a capacity of 400 books, odds are the manufacturer has a schmatic on how they would fit.) Put them in boxes. Put the leftovers in smaller boxes. Ship them out. Good luck.

Also... the books where shipped to you, right? Well, then why don't you use the original boxes? That would potentially save some book-to-box packing time and you'd be recycling.
