Keep a lid on the fun.

Even before we were being driven back to our dining room tables to play economically austere games by the primitive flickering light of a Yankee Candle, I’ve been a big fan of board games. They’re inexpensive, communal, portable, and nostalgically resonant for the geezers among us. They’re also frequently packed in boxes that can’t stand up to the stresses imposed upon them by aggressive game playing joie de vivre. Enter The Container Store‘s sturdy board game cases. Yes, you could use a jumbo ziplock bag (a strategy I actually do heartily recommend for puzzles in dying boxes), but these stack neatly, come in three sizes with preprinted labels for many games, and are sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of recession-era fun.
