We use Corelle and carry them in an upright, rubber-coated dish/lid rack from WalMart, in a lower cabinet under the sink. We were told to keep lighter items up top, heavier below.

The dish/lid racks do well for all manner of kitchen items, utilizing frequently wasted vertical rather than horizontal space. We found collapsible collanders at Bed, Bath & Beyond, also collapsible measuring pitchers.

The Container Store is a good resource for organizing items, and have very lightweight yet soft-ish and airtight round containers in many sizes for flour, sugar, rice, etc.

Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc., carry small, round, screw-together craft item organizers which are good for spices and seasonings---again using vertical rather than horizontal space.

We use no slip material under everything in the cupboards. Our dishes are a mix of glass, ceramic, plastic and metal but most are Corelle. None of ours have broken while traveling.

You can access the Container Store online, they are also freestanding stores that are heavenly to peruse. Their website will give you locations.

Just be forewarned...I've been known to go there for "just one little thing" and leave with a five year supply of Christmas wrapping paper! W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L if you're into that sort of thing like me! Problem is, I already had a several year supply leftover from years previous ~

I love a pretty package!

Me, I hate to wrap, but I LOVE to organize. The Container Store has items for everything from kitchen to bath to travel. So fun!

The hobby & craft stores are great places to find inexpensive organizers, minus all the glitter and trappings----just function.

Paper Plates and Paper Cups in a bin under the sink.

Belle has her own utensils and silverware, also in a SS rack under the sink.

My favorite coffee mug gets packed last and rides wrapped in a towel usually in the sink.

We like our coffee in pottery cups (Fiesta) so those are stored in a soft china storage box from Container Store. Our dishes are mostly melmac and glasses are plastic. These are all stored in the cabinet above the sink, wedged in so they don't move. A plastic WalMart box holds the silverware in a tiny drawer beneath the sink.

We have the 23D International with the slide-y cabinets and after a couple of trips, the overhead compartment just isn't working out that well for dishes and glasses/cup storage for me. So, I'm hoping to revitalize this thread with some fresh ideas and photos.

How do you organize your reusable dishes so they are ready to use?

I have some square-ish melamine plates and bowls, plastic cups, as well as a just a few stoneware plates, bowls and tea cup set that I saw on JFMM blog and had to have; also a couple of stemless wine glasses. If I was taller, it might not be a problem, but I can't even see the stuff I'm reaching for and it's all piled in there because, um, I can't see. The overhead cabinet seems like it would be the safest place to put everything, but I'm reconsidering. Any ideas?

We have had two instances where we hit a hard bump and our corelle dishes came out of the cabinet above the sink. I can tell you they are not bullet proof. They don't break, they explode. We had tiney shards of the dishes scattered from on end of the trailer to the other. I have since rigged a sort of harness in front of the dishes behind the overhead door to attempt to prevent that disaster from happening again. My DW decided to try another set of corelle that a friend gave her. We shall see.

We also have Corelle. For almost a year we carried them in a set of china protectors, the quilted foam bags that zip up with foam sheets in between. Each time we stopped somewhere we had to get them out. I also saw the one on J5MM but didn't want to drill all those holes in my cabinet for the shock cord. I made a rack with three levels such that our slightly dished dishes and bowls would drop in. It takes up only the width of a plate in the cabinet and holds four each of dinner plates, salad plates and soup bowls. I mad it out of oak and oak veneer plywood and when varnished (quite by accident) it matched my cabinets. I'd post a picture but the trailer is in storage. Maybe tomorrow.
