    Dh helped me organize my very long shelf of jigsaw puzzles today. We stacked them in stacks of like sizes and such. When we got finished he said, there is a puzzle piece on the floor. It was an easy fix, i recoginizeed the piece and went right to the puzzle.

    I enjoy enjoy jig-saw puzzles too, but never was able to find a good place to keep up with all the pieces. Now I do some of them online.

    My mom is the jigsaw puzzler here. She will only do them one time tho. Says it's like ready a book twice....why bother. Therefore, I take them and donate to local nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the area. They are greatly appreciated, and we don't have to store them.

    My kids and DH loved them, I could take them or leave them. They did them all over every year it seemed. So to keep them all apart, I would take out the new ones as we bought them, turn them all over upside down and spray paint each set, lightly, a different color. Then a whisk of that color on the side of each box would help identify each one.

    One of my favourite activities as a child was to assemble two puzzles with different pictures but the same pieces, then trade some of the pieces around. I've been known to spend an entire day working on a jigsaw puzzle, although now that's only when I'm visiting my mother.

    Pretty impressive. I would have had to put the piece in a safe place and pull it out when I made a puzzle with a missing piece. I would never have known which box to put it in.
