I am loving the show "Mission: Organization" on HGTV and have recently taken an idea from that show and done it at home.
The kids are always losing all the parts from board games or just taking them all out of the box and using them as toys. It drives me nuts! But one thing I saw on there was that if the box did not have any information on it (like directions or something like that) then throw away the whole box and put everything in a zippered container. It also said that if you do keep the box, take all the pieces and put them in a zippered container so that if they drop it, only the zippered container and the lid fall out. So inspired!
Of course, she had super-cute zippered containers, but it works just as well, and I did it with, plastic storage bags!
