Great idea! I showed Liz and she looked them up and is oohing and awing. I think there will be some in our future. Thanks for sharing!!

Here is our plate and bowls. They travel like this with no issue.

Here are the slotted interlocking dividers. We use them for cups and other places (like my flashlights):

And we also use risers a good bit. Things don't fall off of these nearly as much as you'd think they would:

We use the rubber liner stuff between plates and bowls. (Corelle) They sit in a plastic basket. Non-perishable food items are kept in plastic totes. They are sized to take maximum advantage of cupboard space. About the only thing in the cupboards that don't get their own box would be cereal, potato chips.

We use the rubber shelf liner between plates, bowls, etc. It not only helps keep things in place, it also keeps them from rattling, which is important when driving a motorhome. I've also used the cabinet bars vertically, to keep things from moving forward, which is the natural direction for them to go when driving down the road. Small plastic baskets help keep the smaller items in place, too.

We use the grip stuff and we customized the cabinet to hold more "stuff" with free standing shelves. We have not had an issue with things moving but as you can see, the cabinet is pretty full. We use the microwave for our nesting melamine bowls. Everything else is either melamine, plastic or collapsible. Also posting a picture of magnetic storage bins attached to the side of the stove hood. They don't budge.

I cut some super thin plywood to fit the overhead cupboards and stapled the grip to it. The grip then stays in place and the items seem to stick well to the grip.

I also made some shallow containment trays for the plates, etc. A square piece of ply with a 2 inch or so dowel screwed to each corner. Easy to get the plates in and out but they can't slide out of the tray and hit the door open. Having lost a Corning Ware plate yet.

I also use empty 6 pack beer bottle carriers to keep glasses from moving around and banging into each other.

I've always used the grip stuff on the bottom of each cabinet. The plates and bowls are stored on their edges in a divided organizer. I also use stacking wire shelves for smaller items. Nothing is glass or ceramic except for our coffee mugs. These I wrap in kitchen towels each time we travel. I also use dollar store basket bins to keep them together. I have never had anything break while traveling except the last time when we have a sway incident. That time the drawers and cabinet doors opened and almost everything flew out. I will be looking for a way to secure the doors and drawers now.
