Use bubble wrap for storing small breakable items. Cut the mailer into wide strips. Place the strips in between items as you place them in the storage box. This protects things like china cups, ornaments, glassware or anything breakable.
Store the good china in zip-lock bags. It prevents scratching and assures that they are clean when you want to use them.

My family used to run a restaurant/bar and we got TONS of beer boxes. By using the boxes with the dividers inside (used to keep the glass bottles from breaking) to store Christmas ornaments we had a thrifty yet extremely practical way to protect glass ornaments and other breakables!
