The Cheap and Easy Way to Pack Plates

When you’re moving, little tips and tricks come in especially handy. This moving hack is a simple way to pack plates.

Instead of wrapping each plate individually with newspaper or wrapping materials (when did those get so expensive, anyway?), just use disposable foam plates.

Line the bottom of a box with a blanket (there’s one more thing packed!), and set the first plate in the bottom. Alternate your breakable plates with the foam plates. The foam will cushion the plates during the move–and when you first move in, you’ll have a bunch of disposable plates you can use until you get your kitchen set up.
