To make sure you don't find the pin or tack you need by stepping on it, fasten a vintage soap dish to the bottom of your bulletin board. Look for soap dishes at flea markets and online auctions, and make sure they have holes for mounting with screws. Use the depth of your board's frame to gauge the screw length you will need; then use screws to attach the dish.

I like this idea... I will add a bar of soap and push the pins into it.

I use an Altoids box for push pins, paper clips, etc and wrap rubber bands around the box, as I always seem to need them.

great idea - though for safety's sake, i'll probably put it closer to the top of the bulletin board...

To prevent these from falling out, it would be helpful to put some adhesive magnet tape in the bottom of the soap dish. As a teacher I will probably use this idea in the future. Thanks!
