Gosh - well-remembered. This tip may have been overtaken by bubble wrap, but we've been in a lot of countries where that is not yet available
Plates should be stacked with paper towels between them - or J cloths - and sellotaped together. Likewise saucers,dishes etc.
Paper towels or J cloths rather than newspaper as you will have something to start the cleaning the other end and you won't need to wash the china before you can use it.

I stick wrapped bundles of plates in my big pots for additional protection and to save space. Also put smaller things inside bigger things whenever possible. It can be a bit disorganized when unpacking, but I always plan for a couple days of ordering meals whenever I move. I pack the coffee maker, giant cup and sugar in one box. As long as I can find that box I'll survive the disruption.
