Looking to tame that rec room?! Here's a round-up of great tips to help with games.
I got a kick out of learning that the 6th of this month is "Play Monopoly Day" as I used to play it a lot as a kid. Needless to say it got me thinking about board games and storage! Yep, my mind typically goes there as a Pro Organizer!
Here are 10 great ways to organize your board games for ease of use and maximizing space.
1. Looking to store your game collection in a closet? You can't beat this hanging wardrobe idea. I love that you can see everything at a glance and it utilizes vertical space.
2. Love this simple solution using plastic drawers. You can easily pull out which one you need and you can stack a bunch of these drawer sets to save on space.
3. Have any extra diaper wipes containers? They're the perfect size to hold card games and are much sturdier than keeping them in their cardboard boxes.
4. Another option is to use cheese containers or another type of Tupperware container. How perfect would this be for car rides, camping, or to take to a friend's house.
5. Hate having a precarious stack of board game boxes when you want the one on the bottom? Store them on their sides using the stability of a pan rack.
6. In case you have more puzzles than games, use a pencil pouch to corral the pieces. With those grommet holes you could even place them in a binder or hang them on hooks.
7. If you're looking for a more aesthetically pleasing look try glass jars. Perfect for scrabble tiles, dice, dominoes chess pieces and checkers.
8. I love this practical solution to use what you have. Keep boxes upright and with their lids on by securing them with colorful elastic hairbands.
9. These flat storage containers can be used for a multitude of things, but will hold board games nicely. I love the locking feature so the lid stays on and the pieces don't get lost!
10. These Gamesaver boxes are actually made to hold an array of board games. Their divided compartments can keep cards, spinners, money, and dice at the ready.
How do you store your board games?
And I have to ask, what is your favorite Monopoly piece to use when you play? I always used the top hat!
