How do you store those 'lift out' puzzles

Do you know the ones I mean?.. Those rectangular wooden things with pieces cut out with small knobs on for toddlers.

I seem to have a lot of these from various presents/hand me downs and NONE of them come in boxes! I find myself shoving them under the bed or stacking them on top of each other on a shelf but they invariably topple over and/or pieces get lost. Is there a solution to this?!

I got a load of those zip up type bags, you know the sort school children bring their reading books home in. So I can chuck them in cupboards and even if all the bits fall out, we've not lost any.

Because I can be quite thick sometimes I used to write the name of the shape in the space where the shape goes. I pretended that it would help dd with early word recognition grin
