 > Clicking Remove will do the same thing as "Save for Later"

 Two things here. It feels a bit repetitive to me, because we have two ways
 of doing the same thing, which are named differently.

 Second, I think we are mixing actions with choices.

 Move (action) -> place (choice)
 Remove (action)
 Move (action) -> save for later (action)

 I don't think we really need to have Save for Later under Move. If
 anything, maybe place it as a sub choice for Remove, along with an
 additional option of Delete Permanently.

 Move (action) -> place (choice)
 Remove (action) -> Save for Later or Delete Permanently (choices)


 That would function as a confirmation of deletion, which was requested
 earlier, and at the same time give people a quick way to do either.
