Get Rid of the Games You Don't Play


The first step to organizing your board games is to get rid of games that you do not play anymore, games that are broken, or missing pieces. You'll instantly make more space for storing your board games!


Consider donating the board games you don't use or giving them to someone who you think will love them. If you have a board game that is educational, you can ask a teacher if he or she would like the board game for their classroom.


Make Their Packaging Smaller


If you own several board games, you may have noticed that sometimes their box is way too big for the number of items in it. This automatically makes the board game occupy more space than it needs to.


If you take the actual board game out of the box and place it in a large ziplock or these zipper pouches the board game will take up less room.


I found these large zipper pouches to store our board games (They come in several sizes and colors). The majority of our games were able to fit, even the large ones. The pouches are see-through enough to see what game is inside them. No need to label the games, unless you like to label things!



Place all the Board Games in a Larger Bin


The final step is to gather all the board games into a bin large enough to fit all of the board games. This could be a storage trunk, a cube bin, a storage basket, a plastic bin with a lid, or anything that you think would work for you.


My advice would be, before you go purchasing storage containers, to look around your house and see what you can use to store all your board games.


An easy and simple board game storage that will make space in your closet!



That is how we went from this:


To this:


My favorite things about this are that it helps keep messes to a minimum, no broken or moldy boxes, and leaves space for more things in the closet.


Happy Decluttering and Organizing!
