DW wants to know how you pack pantry for travel

I'm 07ThunderRoad's wife and I'd like to know from you ladies how you prevent damage to goods in the pantry. Where do you all put your stuff in your unit? The pantry has so much wasted space and I'm using the sliding racks in the cabinets left and right of the microwave for canned goods and coffee cups. All I know this setup isn't working.

The more you put in the pantry, the less things move around. I try to at least get enough in there so that whatever's in there holds each other up.

Not too hard to do when packing food for 4 (6 counting the dogs).

The DW places the throw pillows from the couch and chairs in the cabinets, it stabilizes most of the items.

Pack all your non refrigerator items in the pantry as well as any other thing that you have to use. Such as small appliances we also use the plastic baskets available at the dollar tree to hold items in place. Store paper towels and such ther as well

I am the DW - We never had a pantry. We have a corner Fridge and to the right of that was this big coat closet that had two hooks. DH took out the hooks, built shelves, and that is my food pantry. The cupboard above that was one big empty cupboard - DH built shelves, and that is another food pantry. They are quite skinny and there is always more food, so our TV Entertainment Center in the back of the 5th Wheel, I use the two bottom right cupboards for xtra food. The 2 cupboards on either side of the microwave he built shelves and that is for my dishes. The cupboard to the right of the oven is for pots & pans & coffee maker. More pots and pans are stored in the sink island/peninsula. I have no issues with things moving around.

I use plastic baskets from the dollar store to keep everything organize and also put the throw pillows in the cupboards while travelling.

I help to load up by packing stuff from the house to the trailer....

Bought some of these and cut to fit, tall stuff in front these help hold it in.

Put them in the door frame.

We bought a half a doz plastic stackable bins from walmart. They are maybe 10 x 12 x6, kind of a open screen pattern. We load them in the house, take out to TT and put in the cabinets or pantry. Just that simple

I line all the shelves with the rubbery shelf liner stuff. It really helps things from sliding around. You can get it at the dollar store or Big Lots usually pretty cheap and it cuts very easily to fit.
