I was needing to pack some highly breakable items they are very sentimental to me and I didn't want them to break while I have to store them. I didn't have bubble wrap or newspaper but I did have a million old socks so I decided to use them for my packaging.
What I did was take an old tube sock and a teacup. I held the teacup like I was going to drink out of it and I just slipped it into the sock pushing it all the way down to the toe, the part that was left over I just shoved into the cup, I suppose I could have wrapped it back over itself also. With the saucer part it slipped right into the sock and I folded it under when I put the plate in the box. I'm going to use more socks this way I have a lot of them that lost their mate or one has a hole in it and no one wants to mend it. Plus it saved me from having to go buy bubble wrap and saved myself some dough.

That's a great idea. I used my kitchen towels, pillow cases and doilies for wrapping things when I moved. It saves on boxes as well as gives a great cushion for delicate glassware.
Really great idea!
When we moved across the country We didn't have a lot of space for everything so I decided to use our clothes, towels, sheets, etc for wrapping up everything. And EVERYTHING needed to be wrapped for this 3 day drive to protect it. I used our blankets to protect furniture, clothes and such to wrap dishes and collectables, even put towels between some boxes. Not one thing was broken or scratched!
