Pack \PAK\ , verb;
1. To make into a group or bundle
2. To pack goods in compact form for transportation or storage

We're moving soon and the boxes arrived today, so it's time to pack. Today is also the hottest day of the summer so far and we don't have air conditioning. Tomorrow is supposed to be hotter. Awesome.
This pretty much sums it up (source)
Anyway, the verb pack came from the noun pack around 1300. The latter dates to the early 13th century from a Low German word which either came from a term used by wool traders in Flanders or Old Norse pakki, both are of unknown origin. The former was possibly influenced by Anglo-French empaker and Middle Latin paccare ("pack").
