How Do I Keep My Puzzle Contained?

Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to exercise your mind, relieve stress, and have a good time. But something that many individuals struggle with is how to most effectively keep their jigsaw puzzle contained. What happens if you’re putting it together on the dining room table and you don’t finish it in time? Is there an easy way to transport a puzzle while it’s in the process of being put together?

The Solution: A Puzzle Tray

There is a simple solution to your dilemma- invest in a puzzle tray! These wooden trays are made to perfectly accommodate various puzzle sizes, so you don’t have to worry about the puzzle being too big or too small as long as you have the right size puzzle tray. These trays make it easy to move your puzzle from place to place without running the risk of it falling apart or getting in the way, and will help you stay incredibly organized. You’ll find that they are lightweight and don’t take up a lot of space, making this a fantastic option for keeping your puzzle well contained.

A Designated Spot For Your Puzzle

Let these trays become the designated spot for your jigsaw puzzles, and it resolves the issue of using the dining room table. If you start a puzzle and can’t finish it in time for dinner, don’t stress it! Just move the tray and you’re good to go. These trays also make it easy to put your puzzle together in places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to, such as on the carpet or on top of a bed. It expands your options and makes it easy to have a modular, designated spot for your puzzles.

Consider Getting Two

Having one puzzle tray is a must, as this is the best place to put together a puzzle. However, you might want to consider getting two puzzle trays. Just as an unfinished puzzle needs a way to be moved around, so do the pieces that haven’t been put together yet. Yes, you could always toss them on top of your unfinished puzzle or organize them later, but keeping unused puzzle pieces on a tray not only makes them modular, but it keeps them consistently in the same spot. If you’re always rearranging your unused puzzle pieces, it becomes harder and harder to recall where “that one piece” is that you’re looking for. Keeping them in the same spot makes them more manageable.

A Better Puzzle Experience

As you brainstorm how you can improve your experience putting together jigsaw puzzles, take some time to consider a puzzle tray. Not only will it keep your puzzle contained, but it will help you to stay better organized and more efficient when putting together your puzzles.
