A little friendly competition never hurt anyone! Playing games are a great way to spend quality time together, grab a few snacks, and share some laughs. So prep your game stash for the next night of fun with these 5 game storage tips.
1. Rainbow Order
Memories can be triggered by smell, taste, sound, and even color! Storing games in groupings by package color not only looks stunning and appealing but can help you locate what you’re looking for faster.
2. Go Vertical
Stacks of boxes can be a pain to get games on and off the shelf and are prone to box damage. Try switching it up and stand them on end like books. This makes it so much easier to remove one game from the shelf without disrupting the rest.
3. Open Bins
Some games are nearly impossible to get back into the box they came in. Other times the game and packaging are on the small size and prone to disappearing in the back of a cabinet. Storage in open bins are a good solution for these types of games with large pieces that are fairly self-contained and/or small game units. (Find similar white bins HERE)
4. Zippered Pouches
Have you ever opened up a game and it’s 80% filler? Like those dang chip bags that are half full of chips and the rest is just air! Save on space and ditch the box for a zippered pouch. Be sure to attach a label (it can be cut right from the box!) and include the instructions. (Find my zippered pouches HERE and round acrylic tags in the SHOP)
5. Deck Cases
Card games are difficult to get in and out of the box making them break down over time. Protect your cards and make storage a breeze with these plastic photo storage boxes. If you have several card games you can even get a handled case that holds multiple photo boxes making it card game central. (Find photo storage boxes HERE or the case option HERE)
