Packing dishes can seem a bit overwhelming when you first start. Pack them the wrong way and, well, you could end up with a lot of chipped and broken dishes upon arrival. The best way to pack dishes is to stack them on their sides, separated by packing paper or other protective wrap. Wondering how to get them to stay up while you’re packing? Pro tip: Turn the box on its side so you can stack normally and then rotate to fill the empty remaining space with packing materials and close.
