Next time you have to move, you might be tempted to just throw everything away and start over as a "minimalist." Instead, try this!
There's an easy way to prevent that. Styrofoam plates aren't great for the environment, but in this case they're justified, because they'll keep you from having to buy all new plates. Just place a Styrofoam plate between each item in your permanent collection to make sure everything survives the move.
