Puzzle Storage

For jigsaw puzzle storage I found these flip-lock small containers at Hobby Lobby.You could also use those 5 x 7 photo boxes to store puzzles.

Another mom recommended using pencil cases stored in a 3-ring binder as another option.

Using these smaller, sturdy containers makes them portable and great for travel.
