Tired of my glasses and dishes flying around in the cabinet

Hi All...we just came up with a good solution to our plates and glasses flying around in the cabinet. We had some shelves made of plexiglas at our local " Tap Plastics " location and they are terrific! I've attached a photo.

Sometimes I wonder if a dab of rubber cement between each plate and the bottom of the storage compartment would hold the stack together and in place.......

The first weekend we had our airstream we parked it in front of our house, which is on a little grade. While loading more stuff into the trailer, I made the mistake of opening up a cupboard that housed all of our Corelle plates, bowls etc. A seemingly endless cascade of plates and bowls poured out, shattering into a gazillion little jagged shards on the dinette table. This tableware had survived over ten yrs of camping in our sob, and didn't make it to the first camp out in the AS. When Corelle shatters, it really makes a mess. We are much more careful now.

They was a recent Facebook post where an Airstreamer used wire shelving with the lip up from Lowes to partition off their overheads. Very clean and secure looking job.

I cut pieces of rubber coated mesh (like you would put under a carpet to keep it from sliding on top of hard surface flooring) on the bottom of our overhead cabinets (like shelf paper would be used). We put all our cups and glasses in one of the overhead galley cabinets and we put them in upside down. They don't slide around and they don't fall out when the cabinet is opened after traveling.

I put the same rubber coated mesh in the other overhead galley cabinet and we got two rubber coated vertical organizers. These things look like the things you would use to organize file folders. Our plates slide in between the dividers vertically (like file folders would do). We have 4 Corell plates, 4 plastic plates, and a bunch of Chinette heavy duty paper plates. Because the plates are in the cabinet vertically, the lip on the outer edge at the bottom of the cabinets keeps them in place. This has worked great. We've never had any damage to our plates and they've never fallen out of the cabinets.

We store ours on edge in racks similar to those used for Cd's or DVD's.. It always seemed like the dish we wanted was on the bottom of the stack before.

We've stored our porcelain china (4 settings, plus a large Corelle bowl (mainly used to cover dishes in the microwave) in the IKEA Skubb boxes-they are perfectly sized to hold stacked plates, bowls and cups in the overhead cabinet. It's been three years and not a single chip. Click image for larger version
