Day 13 Purge via A Bowl Full of Lemons


Welcome to Day #13.  It’s time to purge some of those old game boards.  If you don’t play it anymore, why keep hanging on to it?  Let it go.  Someone else would love to take it off your hands.  I happily let a lot of ours go to charity.  🙂

This is what we had before the purge.

Purge Day 13: Game Boards

Task:  Pull out game boards & puzzles from all closets & rooms.  Make 2 piles (keep & purge).  Decide as a family, what you want to keep or toss.  This alleviates any surprises down the road, when someone is looking for a game.  Ask your family these questions.

  • Have we played this game in the last 12 months?
  • Does the game have all the pieces? (Go through each box)
  • Is the game in good working order? (broken, torn, etc)

If you answered no to any of these questions, it’s time to purge.
Organizing Tips:

  • Place small game pieces in ziploc baggies.
  • Place puzzles in smaller boxes or baggies (to allow for more space). Don’t forget to cut out the small picture on the side of the box.

After the purge:  We purged a lot of game boards that we never played.

  1. Much appreciated post today! We have so many board games and I never know where to place them.

    Wow! That’s real downsizing! We probably have what you now have & I would get rid of them all if not for my daughter. She asked for several board games last year for Christmas & despite me telling folks we just don’t play & it would be a waste, they all now reside in my coat closet. Because so and so just gave her this, she won’t dare let me part with them.

    Your original collection was so neatly organized that I’ll bet that they were in great condition inside, too. Regifts?
