    dunno what they are called in english, but a simple plastich box with a closable lid works pretty good, they usually come in diffrent sizes. Ikea should have them. I have my loose TF in those now since a movie( or storage) is gonan happen.

    I have one small tub (about the size of a shoe box) and anything in there is in a ziplock. I don't have enough small parts to fill it though.

    I've got all my spare parts in a couple of ziplock bags (I don't have many), and I've got all the instructions from my TF's in a shoebox, though I'm thinking of throwing them away (or have some fun and burn them :D ), as I don't really have any reason to keep them anylonger.

    Walmart sells little plastic containers for 50 cents that are the perfect length for tech specs and 2 stacks of instructions. The only tech specs I have that it wont hold are Metroplex and Fort Max.
