Organizing Ideas For The Weekend #4

Happy Friday everyone!  This weekend's task is to organize your kids' puzzles.

First, purge any that are missing pieces or that your kids have outgrown.

If you have boxes that are worn or broken (or duct taped together!), here's a great way to store the pieces so none get lost!


You can use any containers you have on hand as long as they are sturdy and seal well.  Plastic shoe boxes work well or you could repurpose baby wipes containers.

Once you've put the pieces in the containers, cut the picture of the puzzle off the box and tape or glue it to the outside of the container.  That way your kids can see which puzzle is inside and use the picture to assemble the puzzle.

You could do this for adult puzzles too, particularly if you have worn boxes or even boxes that are all different sizes and shapes.  Using matching containers will allow you to stack them better which will make it easier to keep them organized.

How do you organize your puzzles?  What other containers could you use for puzzles?

Happy organizing and have a great weekend!
