Storage ideas: The more you store - the less you carry!
- Use rubberbands, ribbon or shoestrings to secure box games. Then store them upright instead of stacked for easier and faster access. (Also sneaks in shoetying practice during cleanup time)
- File cabinets and old fashioned chalkboards make great vertical work surfaces and most are magnetic also. If not, suspend a cookie sheet from the top hooks.
- Add magnets to the bottom of anything and everything, then place on any metal surface. Great for those things you reach for everyday.
