Storing Bottles

So I'm packing the RV for this weekends trip, and as usual I'm separating the few glass bottles I carry, spaghetti sauce, jam and such, with food in cardboard or plastic containers. Like all of us, I have done this a lot and it works out just fine. It did get me thinking: How do you folks pack your glass containers? I have the bottom covered, and the sides up about 4 inches with that rolled rubber shelving stuff. That works pretty well with keeping the rattles quiet. I had the thought about using a "Dollar Store" mitten with an elastic around the bottom to hold it in place. Just a thought.
As always, your thoughts will be enjoyed!!!

I usually alternate plastic and glass. Otherwise some bubble wrap left over from some packing received.

We ended up getting woven plastic sleeves on bottles of wine from Liquor store.
They work as well.

1st, we sub-pack most everything into short height boxes of various sizes; box size is what ever fits into a particular storage location, using multiple boxes in a location. Something like a wine bottle gets its own tight box.

Then we try to fit whatever is non breakable in between glass items if it makes sense to be there (dont pack dog toys between spaghetti sauce and jam just because it fits).

Then for possible breakage contact that cant be secured as above, we use various materials; that "rolled rubber shelving stuff", bubble wrap, whatever is soft.

We strive for near zero movement within the storage location. The sub-boxing really helps. We have found glass to hard contact (even other glass) is ok, if properly secured (boxed).

Exercise caution when opening a cabinet or ice box after travel.

Never done anything special. Each shelf is designated a food type, like snacks, mains, etc. We just make sure the shelf is full, which means we might lay something down. Never had a damaged item.
