Looking for tips to organize board games and save on space? Check out this simple system.
Learning how to organize board games has been on my list of organization problems because the games were having many issues. First, some of the boxes were torn which meant the pieces fell out frequently. Second, the games were taking up way too much space!

How to Organize Board Games
First, take a minute and go through all of the games you have.
As with all organizing projects, it is smart to go through things before you start organizing. Remove any games that you no longer use or are missing pieces. If there is a game that you never pull out to play, it is time to give it away.
Decide on your organizational system.
There are many different ways you can organize the games. Take a minute to consider your space and determine what would work best for you.
I prefer to store the board games in zipper pouches and the card games in small boxes. This has saved us so much space!
Use bags to organize.
The main reasons I love this and choose this organization idea are:
- To save space– No matter the size of your house, we all like saving space.
- To be neater- Many of our boxes were broken and falling apart. Storing the games in bags, keeps everything neat and together.
Steps to setting up this system for board games and cards:
I ordered these bags and am using a fabric cube. I would suggest also ordering some longer bags to contain the longer board games. All of my home organization favorites are in my Amazon store!

Empty the contents of the board game and place them inside a zipper pouch bag. Cut the board game name off the box so you can tape this to the front of the bag. This way you can easily know which game is in the bag.
Store the bags. I love how everything can fit in bins and there are no more odd shapes or broken boxes!
Now you can put the card games in their new system. I love using these plastic boxes to hold the cards. I put a label on the front of them. This has helped keep the cards together and they are easy to grab if we want to travel with them.
