Stowing glass jars

We wrapped glass jars in the plastic bags that newspapers are delivered in. Most jars were double bagged and just folded over the ends. We also sealed lids with wax before wrapping. The plastic makes a cushion to prevent breakage and will hold leaks. We had no breaks or issues with any glass when doing this. I bought extra bags from a newspaper delivery guy. They work really well...cruised two years and no problems.
