Getting ready to move again, have done so locally many times before.
I thought I would add a few tips of my own.

1) Liquor stores have boxes with dividers that are normally free. These are great for drinking glasses, vases, etc., anything similar in size to a liquor bottle. They are heavy-duty and not too large. You can pack smaller glasses on top of each other to fill the tall cell, just be sure to put padding in between (small cardboard squares are sometimes all you need). This size of box without the bottle dividers are great for books. Books are heavy and need small boxes.

2) Paper and foam plates are great dividers for dishes (glass plates) and easily available. Seperate with the paper/foam plates and wrap a stack of them with bubble wrap or towels. Use more plates for delicate dishes.

I have a lot of dishes and glassware and have moved it successfully many times. Remember, though, for long hauls with large loads glass items need to be packed with extra padding to allow a bit more abuse of the packed boxes.
