How Do You Store Jigsaw Puzzles?

 

We all know that a jigsaw puzzle can take a lot of room on the dining room table. And a lot of puzzles can take a few days, or even weeks to complete (depending on how much time you’ve got!).

A travel puzzle board can allow you to store your puzzle as you work, keeping the tables free for dinnertimes! For a cheaper and more transportable option, you can also get a travel puzzle mat, that rolls up and keeps your pieces secure and ready to get out when you have time.
