# Packing with less plastic

I have about 5 seconds to write this but I have to tell you that I dislike plastic bubble wrap, although it is often necessary when moving. Instead of using bubble wrap or even newspaper when packing delicate items, here is what I do: I use all my linens (towels, washcloths, bedsheets, blankets, etc.) to wrap vases, glasses, and to put between plates. Of course, I run out of linens eventually and have to resort to traditional packing materials but using the linens reduces what I use by about half!
