Small plastic drawers are perfect for game pieces. Make a label for each so you know right where to go when you’re looking for a game.

Here are a few that I really like to keep games tidy:

- Amazon’s Basics 6 Tier Hanging closet shelves have pockets which could be flexible for different size game items and boxes including those smaller games and small game pieces. The board game shelves are great for keeping missing pieces in check.
- This shirt organizer for closet shelf is more structured for a stack of games and could be great for box storage and games with a variety of sizes.
