Stay Organized with The Puzzle Pod {Review & Giveaway}

The Puzzle Pod{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, msilba!}

If I could take every aspect of our lives and place them into well-labeled, easily stacked clear containers, I would.

Every article of clothing, every toy, every scrap of paper into its designated container so that all of the frantic searching for the appointment card I brought home from the dentist six months ago or the permission slip for Big Sister E's next field trip or that strange-little-plastic-piece-that-looks-like-it-goes-to-something-but-I-just-can't-put-my-finger-on-it would never be lost again.

Unfortunately, that's not exactly feasible. What is possible, however, is to utilize innovative and high quality products that will help keep all of the small items around our house contained and accessible where and when we need them. And the most convenient and useful one that we love right now? The Puzzle Pod.

The Puzzle PodThe patent-pending Puzzle Pod is the solution for keeping track of just about any small items that you have around the house including, of course, puzzle pieces! Instead of being frustrated after spending time putting together the majority of the puzzle only to find the last few missing, this sturdy vinyl gusseted envelope can easily save the day.

Simply peel away the adhesive backing and it sticks to just about anything, creating the perfect place for those crayons, game pieces, scrapbooking tools, hardware, and more!

Not only are Big Sister E and Little Sister B big fans of puzzles, but we are constantly attempting to keep track of all the small things that go missing in our house, so when a set of four Puzzle Pods arrived, I knew right away that they would be a big help.

The Puzzle PodAs soon as I saw The Puzzle Pod in person, it was easy to tell that this simple, transparent item is not only made to last but extremely easy to use. The pouch peels easily off of the backing...

The Puzzle Pod...and adheres to the back of a puzzle, a game board, a clipboard, and more. When it is time for play, all of the pieces and items inside are easily accessible due to the clever addition of the Velcro tabs and children are even able to clean up after themselves when they're finished.

The Puzzle PodAs well as proving its durability and convenience at home with our puzzles and games, we also found the versatility of The Puzzle Pod for traveling to be really great.

For our recent vacation, I knew that Big Sister E would need a collection of art supplies to keep her occupied on the airplane. But instead of having them all thrown into a loose mess in a bag (like we normally do), I decided to see what The Puzzle Pod could do to help.

First, I used a folder for the large items like the notebooks, coloring books, and paper...

The Puzzle Pod...and then I attached and filled The Puzzle Pod with all of the smaller items that are forever being dropped and lost and requiring me to dig down under the seat:

The Puzzle PodIt worked perfectly! The Puzzle Pod didn't bend or tear through all of the times that it was pulled in and out of our bags and suitcases and Big Sister E was pleased every time that she was able to independently get her supplies in and out. I can see using these for all sorts of organizational projects for kids and adults!

Designed for ages 2 and up, The Puzzle Pod sells in a set of four for $14.95 and is a concept that works for so many situations. Whether used at home or on the go, they are just the thing for single or multiple children (or adults) to keep supplies, toys, games, and more conveniently stored!

And, thanks to the generosity of The Puzzle Pod, one person will be able to never lose another puzzle piece again, because...

One lucky person will win a set of four Puzzle Pods!

These are so cool. I would use them for homeschool stuff. The first thing I thought of was the magnetic wooden doll outfit my 4 year old has. Then all the shoes and hats would be in one place.

This would be very handy for us, especially if my daughter's favorite activity continues to be dumping stuff out of boxes and scattering them to the far corners of the earth.

I visited the website and think it'a a real winner for ME! Yes, I don't have any grandchildren yet because my only child is a 27 year old guy (ex-military) who doesn't want children until he completes his 2nd degree but since I'm disabled and its difficult to pick up small things, it would be great for me so I don't have a mess when I do puzzles. ;=)
