How can I safely bring these glasses home?

by Hillela G.
My coworker generously gifted me these glasses. She brought them in one-by-one to the office. I'd like to bring them home all at once ( I take the bus).
Any ideas how I can pack them up so that they make it home in one piece? Thank you!!icon icon

    Bubble wrap. The dollar store carries it.

    Bubble wrap & possibly a small hard sided cooler. If not to bulky for the bus. Could b held in your lap maybe.

    If you have bubble wrap handy that is a great idea. Finding a card board box
    that's just large enough, pack the glasses. Lastly with just the right size
    shopping bag, placing the box inside can help carrying them home with some control. Without access to a bag large enough for the box, some handy packing yarn when tied carefully can help carrying the box on the bus. If you feel the package is too large, can you bring the glasses home, say two days in a row?
    Two smaller boxes with bags that have handles, accommodating the size of the boxes may easily be carried with one on each wrist. Packing paper, or 'pop-corn' can be used if it's available.
    When you do get your glasses home they certainly will become beautiful conversation pieces, for your next get together.

    wrap them in left over grocery bags and stull one or two inside the glass and pack them in a bag lined with more bags They would all fit in one of those larger $1 plastic grocery bags the stores like Marc's sell for reuse and it wouldn't be heavy or take them home 1or2 at a time like suggested above

    Double wrap each glass in a sock and then you can put it in a tote.

    I would bring them home two or three at a time, The more you try to brigh them home all at once the more you risk one or more getting broke.

    Whatever way you choose, be sure to stuff paper inside each glass before wrapping them to increase the stability of the glass. Hollow objects beak easier. I shipped similar glasses from Boston to Pittsburgh via USPS and I stuffed the glass with paper and wrapped them in thick layer of newspaper. Not one was broken but the bubble wrap is best as I ship glass items to Florida all the time with much success!

    Bubble wrap and liquor store boxes. Those boxes come with separate compartments for the bottles. Will be too tall...but just maybe tall enough to stack the glasses one on top of the other (with both bubble wrapped of course).

    Get an empty Wine box with the dividers and wrap the glasses and that would protect them. You can get empty wine boxes at jewel in the wine dept and cut the box and the dividers down. it worked for me. GOOD LUCK!

    Don't know what your house is like, but in mine, even with the kids gone and living alone, I have a drawer full of single socks that missed their moment to escape. I usually use them for dusting and nasty 'need-to-put-my-hand-in-somewhere-yucky'. I think I would put a sock in each glass and then put that glass in a sock. If you have large rubber bands at work or maybe some large zip ties, even sticky tape would work, fasten three glasses together. Then put the three in a plastic shopping or small garbage bag and tie that bag. Put the two tied glasses of three (looks like you have six glasses in total) put them in another shopping bag, Tie them up tightly, and then put them in say a canvas or reusable shopping bag. Glass, especially on the bus is very hard to get from Point A to Point B. I have a rolling bag that I use to take items to a friend in a Care Home. Sometimes he wants Sodas, and other items, and it is just too much for me to carry. I use that all the time. I had actually purchased it for my Cat (it is a pet carrier) and he was too tall for it. I have put it to good use, so on that though, if you had a travel bag with rollers, wrap the glasses well and you could transport your glasses safely. Good Luck!

    First ball newspaper.Put that in the bowl.Then you generously wrap the outsides with newspaper.Pack them in a box.Put more newspaper in there in between the glasses.The other option is to buy a ton of bubble wrap.They do sell it at dollar stores!

    Liquor stores will give you a box that comes with the dividers already there. I've used them many times for moving.

    Go to a wine store and get empty wine boxes with the dividers. Set each glass in each area and you don't need any other wrapping. Works every time. My daughter just moved and not one glass broke.

    Supermarket bottle carriers. They have six sections and a carry handle. Use bubble wrap to wrap them then put them in upside down as this is more stable.

    This works great if you have a shredder in the office. Get a wine box from the ABC store and put glasses in each slot. Generously fill slots and glasses with shredded paper. This works better than plain newspaper as it does not leave black ink all over everything.
