Start with packaging items that are not used often such as fine china dishware, stemmed glasses, seasonal or decorative dishes, souvenir mugs, and even party platters or food warmers. Wrap china and glassware in plain packing paper so that newspaper ink will not bleed onto these sensitive objects. Completely pad the bottom of the dish pack and insert extra stuffing in the corners of the boxes which are the most likely to be smashed in. Place the bulkier pieces toward the foundation of the box using cell dividers to hold dishes in place. Pack glasses and stemware toward the top of the container.
In small moving boxes load up recipe books with their binding facing up. This container could also stow away ornamental pieces, coasters, placemats or other miscellaneous items. Use small boxes to pack up cooking utensils and kitchen knife sets. Pack away spices or herbs in small moving containers. Furthermore, pack oils and spice jars that could leak in individual zip lock baggies to keep everything else in the box clean and dry.
