A while ago I figured out that you can save a whole lot of storage space if you cut off the top of a jigsaw puzzle box and put it into a gallon Ziploc with the puzzle pieces.
Along those lines, I’d like to propose a new federal mandate that board game boxes all be sized and shaped identically. Can you imagine how much more beautiful the insides of closets could be? (Or, in my case, the tops of bookshelves?) If we can convince our lawmakers to drop the evil upcoming fluorescent bulb mandate and take on this instead, that will be a political cause I can get behind.
(Not that we have a lot of board games. Apparently those members of this family who favor games of the electronic persuasion are also the more prolific purchasers.)
