    Re: dishes

    For us, plates, bowls and coffee cups and mugs just get stacked in the overhead cabinet.
    Wine glasses get wrapped in paper towels.

    Re: dishes

    We also just stack our plates, bowls and coffee cups in the overhead cabinets. But we also place a paper towel in between each one just for a little extra protection. Glassware, like already mentioned, gets wrapped in small towels. Never had any problems with breakage.

    Re: dishes

    We always used regular plates, bowls, but had mostly unbreakable glassware. Everything in cabinets, never had anything break.

    Re: dishes

    I use the rubber stuff for cabinets, cut small squares to stack dishes in the cabinets and put between glasses. Never had anything break.
    If it isn't mounted securely then it goes in a lower cupboard with the pots and pans.

    Re: dishes

    We use Corelle dishes and bowls and just stack them without any problem. 95% of our glasses are plastic so no problem there. We have 2 glass coffee cups that fit nicely into a small plastic storage bin and we use a piece of rubber shelf liner to separate and protect them from breaking or chipping. We are full time and this is what works best for us.

    We use a thin rubber shelf matt
    Preventing them from sliding around.
    We also put the same between the dishes.
