Over the years I have bought several game mats, some get used some don't, but all cost good money and until now have been rolled up and crumpled in a corner due to lack of storage space. So last week I made the long overdue decision to buy some cardboard postal tubes in which to store my mats. It took a while to find something suitable that was a) big enough to fit 4ft wide mats, b) cheap enough not to break the bank and c) in stock!
Here's a tip, if you can buy 'in bulk' (usually five or more) the unit cost is much much cheaper. The company I bought from sold five tubes for the same price that two singles would have cost. I'm not complaining because it means I was able to get five 5ft tubes for just under a fiver each. Not too bad and an investment if it means my mats are properly protected (at long last).
Does this mean you'll need to buy more mats?ReplyDelete
Great idea Lee.ReplyDelete
I popped into a local carpet store and they allowed me to scavenge some carpet inner tubes for free. They're easily cut to size, although a bit bulky.ReplyDelete
