Aligning text frames on a page bumper to bumper without any gaps

Hi there,

I have a very tedious job of moving up text frames up to the bottom border of the upper text frames. I have to repeat this work on every page. Any advice on how to do this job effectively? Is there a script or an easy way to do this? Thanks. 🙂

I've attached the pics of a problematic page (the number and height of text frames vary on every page) and the desired result.

Along with JMLevy suggestion.

 

You could anchor all your text frames in a single text frame.
