Use Plant Trays to Store Mugs and Glassware

An empty plastic plant tray.Many of the places I buy potted plants from gives the plastic trays that plants are delivered in away free to customers. Some garden centres often leave them in the packing area after the checkouts so you don't even need to make a purchase to get hold of them.


They are a fantastic storage solution for breakables including occasional crockery and glassware, enabling you to put them on shelves without danger of them banging together and breaking. There is even a space for handles and it is a brilliant way to organise canning (jam) jars by size! This tip could also be useful when packing for a house move or to help safely transport breakables for trunk sales or perhaps if you need to loan things to friends or groups.

It made it easy to pull things out from the back of the shelf too.
