I’m excited to announce, Tuesday Tips. Each Tuesday, I will share a simple tip that our family has found to be helpful in parenting, homemaking, etc.
Today’s tip involves puzzles. I know there are some of you who store puzzles in their boxes, and the boxes look brand new and you’re wondering why is there a need for a puzzle storage post.
We are not such a family. My boys tend to be a little rough on things, and they really love their puzzles–they work them all the time. Between the constant use and their less than gentle handling, the boxes tend to get crushed. Once that happens, the pieces will constantly fall out, and eventually get lost. Our first solution for this problem was to simply tape up the boxes. That lasted for about 5 minutes.
So, we needed a new solution–and ziploc bags were perfect.
I just bought store brand, quart-sized bags (these came from the dollar store). If you’re concerned about the size, the freezer bags are usually a bit bigger than the sandwich/storage bags.
I cut the image from the puzzle box to include in the baggies. If it’s a big box, you could also work the puzzle and take a picture of it. These have worked great for us. My boys have a lot of puzzles, so we keep them in a Fabric Storage Bin like this one.
Do you have a tip to share? I would love to feature your ideas.
