I have been using plastic storage boxes for just about everything. I have them sized to fit in all the nooks and crannies. The keep everything in its place, no sliding around and banging the cabinet doors open. With a small trailer and limited storage spaces “a place for everything and everything in its place”.

Hey Terryandann, congrats on the new FC and welcome to the forums, a great place to be for all things airstream.
We use some plastic, some paper. They seem to travel nicely just stacked up in the cabinets. We turn the tumblers upside down so the wider rim keeps them from falling over. Rolls of paper towels stuck here & there help stabilize things too. We put the lighter stuff in the upper cabinets, heaver stuff down low.
Good to see you here. John

Oh yea, things like bowls and tupperware containers that have rounded bottoms pack better upside down so they match up to the curve of the trailer inside the cabinet.(still trying to train Susan on that one).

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

We use very few breakable plates or dishes, coffee, wine, cocktail glass and the few other items that may break are wrapped in dish towels and stacked.
No problems so far.

We have to use the vertical storage space in cabinets, and put plates and bowls in lid organizers.

Works great.

You will. The more you do it the easier it gets. Most of it is still a mystery to me. I just muddle along.

We require REAL wineglasses....I keep them each in their own (new!) tube sock. Works very well-and if I ever need some clean socks I know right where to find them!

I'm with ya on that one, I refuse to sip good Scotch from anything less than glass. I keep 2 small glasses (one for me , one for a guest) in the china cabinet up front.

for plates and bowls, we bought some groovy melamine ones at Crate and Barrel. For wine glasses, coffee mugs and our vintage press-pot, there is no substitution for the breakable. I wrap breakable stuff in tea-towels and stuff our pillows and throw blankets in the cabinets to make sure nothing can move around. I used to work for a lighting company and had to make sure glass items would make it shipped overseas, I'm kind of compulsive.
