The kitchen contains many fragile items—including dishes and glassware—so you’ll want to pay particular attention to packing everything securely. For expert tips on how to pack up your kitchen like a pro, watch this helpful video.
Before you begin, gather sturdy boxes, packing paper, small sealable bags, packing tape, and felt-tip markers. Fill the bottom of each box with crushed paper to protect breakable items. When packing plates, wrap each plate individually in clean paper, using several sheets. Start from the corner of the plate, wrap diagonally, and tuck in any overlapping edges as you go. Once the plate is wrapped, place it in the box on its end, not stacked flat. For even more tips, including in what order to pack your items and how to protect cups and bowls, watch this full video.
