DIYSHIPPING Packing Materials
Packing can be one of those moving stressors you don't think about until you actually do it. We all have moved at least one time. If your family moved when you were growing up, remember helping Mom clean up after holiday dinner? You were worried you'd break one of those heirloom plates -now you have some idea of how stressful it can be to handle and pack your own goods.
Packing supplies you'll need for packing china:
- Packing peanuts or an environmentally friendly alternative, like biodegradable packing peanuts or eco-friendly cushioning
- Bubble wrap, newspapers (many use newsprint but remember, you'll be washing dishes to get the "dirt" off your things, Newspaper Wrap) or another soft padding for between the dishes
- A compact box or boxes that hold no more than 10 lbs, sometimes called a dish pack barrel. If you have the original box your china came in, all the better
- Packing tape
- Magic marker
