I like to jigsaw puzzles, therefore I buy one every months or so. I have puzzles that I have finished in there boxes taking up room because I really don't want to get ride of them. Therefore, my question is: What do you do with your jigsaw puzzles once you have completed them? Take care Snow

We don't have any jigsaw puzzles laying around here that I know of. One that was bought and built is hanging on the wall in a frame. You could buy puzzle glue, glue the puzzle together, then get it framed, that way you can keep it as wall decor. haha, it might end up as another way to clutter, but atleast this way they won't be in a box!

Your welcome, glad to be of help! I just thought, if you'd like to, you could do what I suggested, and those you don't like that much you could sale.

A good thing to do is to donate them to senior centers and nursing homes. Also for activity centers for teens or for the adult disabled. You can glue them together and frame them or put them under glass on a table. If you have the right size, glue them together and use them as placemats at the table.

There was quite a few good ideas in your comment Gerty. I give a lot of things to charity shops etc, but it would be good if people who would really enjoy them could be given them for free.

I liked to play jigsaw puzzles when I was a child. I ever bought 1000 pieces of puzzles of the world famous painting. It's sad to say that I didn't finish it at last. I was not that patient. Now, it seems it is much more impossible for me to finish it. Time is the real problem. If I could finish such a masterpiece, I would buy a picture frame and hung it on the wall in my living room. So everybody can see it. I love China

Hi, I am a fan of jigsaw puzzle too. For me, I will glued them up because I can't afford to put them in frames because I have insufficient area for storage/display. Without the frames, I can squeeze them in my cupboard. I have got 3 of them in my cupboard and 2 in frames for display. Nowadays, it's hard to find inexpensive jigsaw puzzle that is nice. The last time I did was this 3D jigsaw puzzle of an apple. It's my first attempt with 3D and I took around an hour to complete the very first one but the subsequent one is completed within mins because I know the trick to assembling them. Do you do 3D puzzles?

Hello, It has been a very long time since I sat down and did a jigsaw puzzle, and I mean about 25 years. I did enjoy them at the time, but, I dont think I would have the patience to complete a picture puzzle now. The thought of getting to the end and discovering there is one piece missing would drive me mad. When you do your jigsaws do you always start with the outside edges of the picture ?

I start with the outside edge first. Yes, I know what you mean when you can not find that one piece. Thanks for stopping by and I enjoyed reading your reply. Take care Snow

When my older children were younger we used to have a puzzle going during the colder months and we would just stop by it and work it for a bit, sometimes we worked on them seperately and other times we worked on them together. We once did one that was a Thomas Kincade type it was beautiful, we bought the puzzle glue and glued it to have framed. When we were done we took them apart after a few days and stored them till we had a garage sale. I liked the idea of giving them to youth centers, or retirement centers. Maybe even hospitals. I haven't done a puzzle in probably 7 years now, guess it's time to find one and get started. Happy Mylotting!!!

I know what you mean. We used to do puzzles all the time and when they were done we had them laying on the table forever. Then we put them under the bed and covered them up so they don't get all dusty. The really nice ones we framed and hung on the wall.

They are fun to do and for me they take me a while to do them that I just heart to take it apart. I think that I will put the one that I like the best on the wall. However, that's another story because I like them all. All in the life of puzzles. Thanks for stopping by and chatting with me. Take care Snow

Hi, snowqueen2000802. If I put them all together, I will just keep the puzzle pieces in a storage plastic container. I will sit it out for a while for others to see, and eventually the puzzle gets mixed up again. It will be all over the place, so I will just let it be.

Hi cream97 I was thinking of getting a plastic storage boxes that you can stack them on one another for my puzzles being that I don't have much space left in my one room apt. That for stopping. Take care Snow

hi snow for me I just do them on the computer for free and no boxes to put away or take up space as I am in a room with a roommate and not a whole lot of extra space. I am a senior citizen living in a retirement center. oh lord I do love doing them but If I got started again I would not be able to mylot too. sad. but mylot is so much fun and also pays for me so I can pay my internet bill each month.

Hi I loved jigsaws when I was younger, although now I have 2 kids of my own and an accounting course to keep me busy I never have the time for things like that. Like you I used to just shove them back in the box, but I remember once my grandfather glued one that I had completed on to a piece of wood so that it was like a picture. I was only young, but I can still remember how clever I thought he was for doing something like that.
