When packing to move, use plastic food wrap to enclose your utensil trays, and any tray that you might have in your office desk that holds paper clips, stamps, staples, etc. Same with your cans or jars of pencils from your desktop or by your phone. Wrap them till complete enveloped with the plastic wrap. So if something should happen to it, all the items or utensils are contained to the tray and do not go all over the place.

Wow, what a great idea. I love to use the Glad Press N' Seal wrap for covering my watercolor palette. The paint stays put and I can put it away safely even when thje paints are still wet. This could also work for packing salt and pepper shakers- unsrew the lid and cover the shaker with wrap, then screw the lids back on....voila, no mess !! Or shampoo bottles, open mayonaise jars, kids glitter, etc.... oh my, the wheels are turning now.
Actually, rather than use expensive plastic food wrap, you can get rolls of movers plastic wrap, which are longer, and cheaper by the foot. Look for it in catalogs that sell packaging supplies, or industrial type catalogs. A moving company might even sell it to you. Mover's wrap can be used on nearly everything. You can wrap it around small chests to keep the drawers from opening, and just leave everything inside, wrap table legs together, etc.
