Question for Military Wives August 2, 2009

Filed under: Military,Travel — Misa @ 5:57 pm

My question is about jewelry and how to PCS with it.

Obviously, any nice or special jewelry will be coming with me in my carry-on luggage. That part is easy. However, I’m a bit of a costume jewelry fiend. Costume jewelry is the only thing I allow myself to kind of horde and I have a ton of it. It is way too much to put in my carry on. The question now is to I put it in my checked luggage or can I pack it with my home goods? No single piece is worth that much money, but as a “collection” it has some value attached to it. Lots of this costume jewellery looks like the real thing. I’m worried that someone will steal the lot of it thinking that some of it is real. Perhaps this is a little paranoid, but sometimes paranoia can be helpful. I was thinking I might wrap it in Ziploc bags and tissue paper and then pack it in sealed shoe boxes – along with some of my shoes – and just ship it with my home goods.

I should also mention that I am returning from Europe so I cannot just pack it in my car and drive it to our new base.

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. 🙂

    I think the shoebox thing is a good idea.
