Moving Tip: Haul Your Dishes in Restaurant Racks

Carefully wrapping all of our glassware in bubble wrap and newspaper only to drive it ten minutes to our new house and unwrap it was making us a little bonkers so we came up with an idea.

We borrowed some dish racks from a local restaurant and it made packing up our kitchen much simpler (not to mention greener). The racks are stackable and very sturdy and would probably work well even for a longer move. And they come in all kinds of configurations so they hold different shapes and sizes of dishes.

If you can’t find a restaurant in your neighborhood willing to part with a few racks for a day or two, you can most likely find them at a store that sells used restaurant equipment (in Rhode Island, try Business Surplus Inc).
