You want to do this to about 3-4 more plates all the same size. Stack plates together turn the stack upside down and wrap the entire bundle. Place the bundle on top of a layer of crumbled-up packing paper at the bottom of the dish pack, make sure to stand the plates upright and not lay them down. Continue this process with the rest of the plates and bowls.

Stemware and Glasses

Make sure to put crumpled-up paper in between each layer like frosting for extra protection.

Other Kitchen Items
