Sturdy Game Storage
As a homeschooling family that watches very little TV, we have developed quite a collection of games.
Many of those games still live in their original boxes and are stored either on the shelves in our Spare Room or in the awesome storage baskets in our playroom. (See below.)
A few games, however, suffered from disintegrating boxes which had to be replaced. Our new, sturdy game storage containers have worked out splendidly!
Awesome Storage Baskets
I absolutely love these storage baskets. As you can see, the basket on the left contains games. The one in the middle is for toys and the basket on the right holds our collection of dress up clothes.
Card Game Storage
The flimsy Uno box didn’t stand a chance, and our game was in jeopardy of getting lost or damaged.
These index card holders were just $.90 at Target. They’re the perfect size for storing card games, and are super-sturdy, too.
Plastic Shoe Boxes as Game Storage
Our Zingo box really took a beating and needed to be replaced, but the Zingo card shooter is such an awkward size that finding the right box was a challenge.
Then I remembered the sturdy, transparent shoe boxes from the Container Store. In my former life, these boxes contained my shoes. Now that I live in an old house with children and a tiny closet, the boxes have been reborn as storage containers for games, playdoh and various other activities.
Our new Zingo box is performing well–it keeps the game well-contained and protected among the rest of our games in the storage basket. The lid has a very secure catch, as well, which means the contents stay put. I’m very pleased!
