u/emkay99 · 15 pointsr/Genealogy

Speaking now as a local history librarian & certified archivist:

You do know those scrapbooking-type plastic sheet protectors are NOT acid-free, right? You can get archival-quality plastic display sheets online, but they aren't cheap.

Personally, I just use acid-free folders and banker boxes for everything. They're the standard storage medium for libraries and archives, they're sized for standard folders, they're inexpensive, and they stack neatly in your closet. Amazon has them and so does Walmart.

I especially wouldn't use air-tight plastic tubs for photos. And definitely NOT for pre-1900 photos, because the chemistry is different from the later Kodak methods and plastic tubs will retain moisture, which can destroy them. Snapshots and such from ~1930 and later will be just fine stored unmounted in acid-free folders.

I'm the oldest in my generation, the designated family historian, and so I now have (literally) several thousand photos from the 1860s through the 1990s. Mostly, I group them in folders by family and sometimes location, and I pencil a letter+numeral code number on the back (lightly). And then I have a separate sheet, or set of sheets, in each folder keyed to those numbers with all the notes I can gather and identification of people and so on. That info gets updated and expanded from time to time, and you don't want to be erasing and re-writing stuff on the back of the photo. You don't want to write that stuff on the photo itself, and you never want to write anything on a photo in ink. Pencil only!

All the photos that might conceivably be of interest to anyone else, I've scanned and organized in folders on my laptop. Many of those have been posted at one website or another, and they also are all stored at Carbonite (along with everything else on my computer). That also means I don't have to handle the physical photos very often. Ditto with most of the documents.

Also, this being hurricane and tornado country, that online storage gives me a backup in case of disaster. Even if I lose the house and the original photos, the images themselves will still exist.

One other thing -- and I can't stress this enough: There is a special circle in Dante's hell for people who LAMINATE old letters and documents in plastic. Do that, and you've just destroyed the document. FOREVER.

u/DaddyDaz · 8 pointsr/comicbooks

I use one of these.

u/pro_organizer · 6 pointsr/organization

The easiest and cheapest way to sort and temporarily store paper would be to have it vertical, especially if each of the current stacks is its own category. You'd be able to use much more of the existing shelving unit and that would mean whatever isn't making it into the closet right now might fit. I think some magazine holders like these from Ikea would be a big help (Also sold at Amazon.)

Sort the cases by whatever makes the most sense: Last names, dates, etc. I'd use post-it notes on the magazine files until you are certain what kind of labeling structure works best. You won't want to decide to change it halfway through permanently labeling everything.

I hope this gets you started!

u/11twenty2 · 6 pointsr/sewing

If your stash of sewing patterns is out of control like mine was, Comic book sleeves like these are the perfect size for most pattern packages and most that you find are re-sealable. They also make boxes and dividers that will fit patterns perfectly. Best part about it is that they are way cheaper than buying ones specifically for sewing patterns. I know it isn't a sewing tip, but it is a sewing organization tip. Hopefully it helps someone.

u/DeadAxS · 5 pointsr/vinyl

Those aren't the best fit, I switched to these. Supreme Milk Crate by Iris

u/atriptolalaland · 5 pointsr/gifs
u/Izahealyou · 5 pointsr/magicTCG

This 10-800ct vertical Max Protection one is the only one similar to what you are asking about that I can find online.

Personally I use the BCW 12-802ct and love it, but my shelf has room for it. Could actually use more room for another one, never can get enough space.

As for making your own, I would use wood and do a similar notching system like the BCW card houses use. I prefer thin plywood for projects like these, as it’s durable and strong.

u/Heartsandbananas · 5 pointsr/comiccon

We bought one of these one year and it seemed to be the best option. As far as the one that can't roll up, I'm not sure the best option besides over in it so nothing gets on it

u/alanamablamaspama · 5 pointsr/comicbooks

BCW Stor-folio. link

I have about 10 books bagged and boarded in each of mine. It would fit more if I didn't use fullback boards.

u/watsoned · 4 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh see now that would be nice. I found this, which is nice enough, but it looks like you just put the comics in there in a group. But if you could have each comic in its own sleeve, that would make it very easy for you to dig through and find the one you want. Especially useful if you're in the middle of a series and don't want a bunch of books spread all over the coffee table.

u/Evari · 4 pointsr/StarTrekStarships

My garage has a big pile of these:

Each one holds 44 of the standard size boxes pretty nicely.

They're not air tight but they do a pretty good job of keeping moisture out and they stack on top of each other securely.

u/u9lojmuk · 4 pointsr/comicbookcollecting

I am moving tomorrow and was so hoping that your question would be geared towards that situation for my convenience :) I'm worried about damaging them during the move.

For your situation though, one of these would probably do the trick. I picked one up for carrying comics to work with me and have not had any issues with wear or corner bend. The issues I carry are bagged & boarded.

u/KingGeorgeOfGeorgia · 4 pointsr/vinyl

Does anybody have some suggestions for record-storing boxes? My grandfather has a very large collection, and he's looking to organize it. His two requirements are that it be plastic and have a top. He is very against these types of boxes for some reason. Thank you so much!

u/Austounded · 3 pointsr/theflash

Some are some aren't. These are the things that I use.

Real quick explanation on why I use Mylar bags now:

u/aniMayor · 3 pointsr/boardgames

As you say, the Broken Token insert is only for storing the parts away, it doesn't help during play.

The Daedalus Insert, on the other hand, is meant to both help with storage, speed up setup/tear down and be used during play. It's pretty great.

BUT! The Daedalus insert is only for use with the base game, Rise of the Ancients (RotA), Ship Pack 1 (SP1) and the four mini-expansions so far. - it fits ALL of those in just the base game box, which is awesome. BUT, the 2nd big expansion, Shadows of the Rift (SotR) just came out, and all of it together will not fit with the Daedalus insert. So if that insert interests you and you think you will eventually buy all the expansions, you may want to hold off on that for now - supposedly Daedalus is looking at making a new version of the insert once they get their hands on a copy of SotR.


Other than inserts, some cheaper and simpler ways of helping to organize the game are to put all the player components for a particular colour (cubes, discs, ships, 3 colony ships, 1 of each resource marker, action card) in a small box. The Ultra Pro #81173 or the 0.14L Really Useful Box (Amazon Link) are just the right size to fit all that in. If you don't mind always using each race's default colours, toss the ambassadors in there too, and 1 extra colony ship in the green box.

Even with just those and nothing else, setup becomes a lot quicker. Your players can look over the race sheets, and when someone decides they want to play as, say, Eridani they take that player board and you just pass them the little red box with all their components in them. At the end of the game, they dump all their player-specific components back in the box and pass it back to you!

For Ship Parts, it depends a lot on what size of games you'll be doing. A lot of people like to use a plano box, fishing-tackle box or counter tray sort of thing where each ship part has its own pocket. Those are fine for smaller games (2-5) where everyone can reach it, but the wider size of those boxes makes them more awkward to pass around the table. Since I play a lot of 6-9 player games, I find just dumping all the ship parts into one medium-sized tupperware container works fine - it's easy to pass around the table, it never spills, and people don't have any difficulty digging through it to find the ship parts they need. You can also compromise by having 3 small sandwhich-sized tupperware boxes with the unsorted tiles, but divided by type (one box has weapons and drives; one box has hull, computer and shields; one box has the rest).


Cube trays - depends a lot on your players and/or the presence of cats. I have them, but only use them half the time... most of my players are careful enough they don't need them.

Influence disc trays and other holders for things on your player board - you probably don't need these - that stuff is big enough it doesn't move on its own unless you're wearing a dangly scarf. I would wait and see after a half-dozen games before deciding to get anything like this.


Tangentially related: If you do ever plan on having a 9-player game (or 10, or 11, or 12...), better invest in a bigger house then if you can, do it somewhere where there's a TV/projector against one wall and put the Supply Board on its own little table with a camera pointed at it and displaying on the TV/projector so everyone can see it. No matter what kind of organizers/vertical-stand-up-tech-trays/etc you buy, you will not find a way for everyone at the table to be able to read and easily access the Supply Board otherwise!

u/the-worst · 3 pointsr/comicbooks

i use these for cons - may be a little bigger than you're looking for, but they do the job quite nicely.

u/llikegiraffes · 3 pointsr/comicbookcollecting

A plastic top loader is the next best thing besides getting the comic graded. These are also really nice for transporting comics at shows:

u/MsMargo · 3 pointsr/comiccon

You'd be amazed at the number of bumps and hits a backpack/string bag will take. Even when bagged and boarded, to avoid damage to your books, have something with hard sides. I haven't used this one personally, but it's a suggestion.

u/ChaosFearsNone · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

And done!!!

  1. Blue the best for obvious reason.

  2. Summer what’s better than beer pong? Pool beer pong.

  3. Usual Food the best because it’s a local thing.

  4. Gift for another for my love of Disney animation.

  5. Book to read great insight into the human race.

  6. Cheap because yummy.

  7. For the doge because adorable.

  8. Useless yet so awesome.

  9. Movie because it’s my favorite.

  10. Zombie to destroy their brains.

  11. Life changing to adapt to in work life.

  12. Add on because my kids are always getting sick.

  14. Pricey for when the lights go out.

  15. Sharks because it’s badass and my daughter would love it.

  16. Good smells one of my favorite scents.

  17. Childhood feels spent so many playing games on this.

  18. Writers was helpful for me once upon a time.

  19. Obsessed my life of Disney is strong right now.

  20. Weird because lol.
u/GoldRhapsody · 3 pointsr/comicbooks

I asked this question a few months ago and was directed to this portfolio. I got it last March and it has been great to carry comics and collections. It was a great recommendation.

u/HGFantomas · 3 pointsr/comicbooks

Bag, board and folio box like this one

u/MsLT · 3 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

Grab yourself a lockbox for the non-fridge items and a mini fridge with a lock for the cold shit. Seriously :(

Here is an option for a lock box..

Here is a fridge lock!

u/lennonmacca · 3 pointsr/vinyl

I'm sure many of us here will see someone asking for storage help and immediately think of the Ikea Expedit; there are other sizes of it, the cheapest being $39.99. I don't own one personally, but many pictures of collections and setups seem to feature that certain unit and many praise it for being perfect for record storage. I plan on getting one sometime.

If you don't want to put out all of the cash for that, milk crates are another solution to the storage problem. A quick Google search brings up many options, but I was surprised to see one from Amazon for a lot more than I expected...

u/davemorbid · 2 pointsr/comicbooks

Fair enough. Just a thought to keep them all together and easily displayed.

But maybe some of these instead:

I know people use them at cons for sig gathering, but don't see why they wouldn't work on a shelf too.

u/TrixieKixx · 2 pointsr/xxketo4u2

I bought this cube storage system from Amazon to house all my yarn. It's worked out really well...although I do still have four tubs of yarn that didn't fit in it. I'm trying not to buy anymore until I use up some of what I've got. I only put the doors on the bottom five and left the rest as open storage. It's a little messy right now because I need to organize everything on top; however here's a pic so you can see. Do not judge me by the size of my yarn habit :D

u/mountainhousedog · 2 pointsr/Hydroponics

Thanks! Not any guide in particular, but cobbled together ideas from a few, mostly from this awesome Instructable

I did find a cheap(ish) lazy watering system that made the plumbing a lot easier, and most of it off amazon as I don't have many good hardware stores near me and absolutely no room for serious carpentry or plumbing (1 bed flat in Central London...). Links are below though:

Solar Powered Waterpump - £20

Recycled Plastic Container - £15

Recycled Plastic 15 Litre Plant Pots - £10 for 12

Reusable Nylon Fine Mesh Food Strainer - £30 for 5

Hozelock Easy Drip Micro Kit - £30 for 15 drippers

Vermiculite - £40 for 100l (waaaaay too big, I miscalculated here!)

Perlite - £20 for 100l (again...)

Probably worth saying I intend to extend the system with a second setup so I had to 'overbuy' components... I'd estimate that the total cost of the components for the system in the video was roughly £70, which, given that I had to use amazon for everything, and most of it is reusable, I'm not too upset about!

u/argrima · 2 pointsr/crochet

Not IKEA, but I keep seeing this on Amazon ads and think it would be perfect

u/Polar_Ted · 2 pointsr/raisedbynarcissists

I'm still kinda snarky from that time she called to tell me Grandma was mad at me because I didn't get nMa a birthday present. Then proceeded to tell me Grandma wanted me to buy her (nMa) a pink iPod with her name engraved on it. So I got her the damn thing only to find out later Grandma never said a word on the subject.

Anyway, For the snarky relations I don't know how to deal with I ignore all requests and fall back on the rule. "The gift must be Stupid and useless"
Last year I got nMa a Useless box

u/kw1nn · 2 pointsr/DCcomics

My bad, boxes are the proper term. I use these.

u/IAmTheFatman666 · 2 pointsr/BadDragon

I feel pretty blessed in this aspect. My toys are usually in my dresser. My mom never comes in my room, and if she does, and then opens my dresser, she won't care. She knows.

Here's a couple locking boxes/chests from Amazon, that won't break the bank, you might look into:

Number 1
Number 2
Number 3

u/Imsoschur · 2 pointsr/pelletgrills

Similar to above. I chose these. They are short enough to stack, and can hold a 20lb bag.

u/broken_cogwheel · 2 pointsr/Dualsport

Here's the best way to mount a milk crate:

You should buy a milk crate with holes in the bottom like this:

I have used those milk crate mount things on 2 bikes. I bought that milk crate and I bought 2 sets of those mounts for my CRF250L. It works very well.

Enjoy and good luck.

u/fredjh · 2 pointsr/LegoStorage

File storage boxes, like these. I have two full of instructions. I do not use file hanging folders, though, I just load them up with the instructions.

u/rabbiabe · 2 pointsr/diypedals

I’m also new to the game and I’ve found tayda to be a much more accessible site than Mouser — I get overwhelmed by the apparently galactic selection and can’t figure out what to get.

Also u/preppyprepface had really important advice— don’t skimp on your stock. I had to go back to tayda almost immediately and order a bunch more stuff because I initially ordered exactly what I needed for a specific PCB and then got really excited about other potential projects, and the shipping takes a while (weirdly, at a certain point if you order enough it comes DHL from Thailand which for some reason is faster than however they ship from Colorado. Who understands these things?). The most important thing to remember is that things will get screwed up — last week I ruined a 3PDT and shorted an LED and it was great to just reach into the bin for another one and keep chugging. Resistors in particular are so cheap that you can’t even buy less than 10 at a time (10 resistors = $0.12 so it makes sense)

You’ll also want a way to keep things organized — I bought this and this and these. In retrospect I wish I had bought two of the first one, but they’re all useful. Some of the bin walls are removable so you can make different size spaces for different kinds of parts. I then used regular sticky labels (Avery 5160) to label the outside so I could see what went where — for the smaller parts like resistors and capacitors I grouped them, so all the x10kΩ resistors went in one bin (in their little ziploc bags), all the x100kΩ in another bin, etc. it still requires some fishing through (vs buying a big table top organizer) but I live in a small house :)

u/DangerousFat · 2 pointsr/boardgames

No, I'm quite certain they're Really Useful Boxes, as I have like 20 of them. lol The one in the picture is exactly one of these.

u/the1andonlyE · 2 pointsr/Gifts
u/murdrfaze · 2 pointsr/Leathercraft

For finished leathers, they get rolled and stacked on a shelf that never stays organized for long. Ive been thinking about purchasing a [document tube ](Lg Expandable Document Tube 3"X27-49" to contain my veg tan hides from sun/environmental damage.

u/EricKei · 2 pointsr/AskRetail

Just for illustrative purposes:

Banker Boxes: -- As long as you keep them somewhere dry and safe, they basically last forever, and they're quite tough for reinforced cardboard. The material is similar to what you'd see in a heavy-duty moving box suitable for packing a bunch of heavy books. Hell, they make great moving boxes, too ;)

Pouches: Something like one of these. Need to have pre-punched holes. No need for an actual zipper, but they should have some method of closing them, such as a ziploc-type closure:

Note - you do NOT want "laminating" pouches, just storage pouches. Shop around for the best deals, as with anything else.

u/_AlphaZulu_ · 2 pointsr/DCcomics

Everyone's got good idea, but really if you want piece of mind, you'll pick up a few of these guys.

Once I threw the books in those and them into a duffle bag or backpack, you got nothing to worry about.

u/Saphira9 · 2 pointsr/organizing

I organized my most important papers in manilla folders and put them in this kind of box. For the other piles of school papers, I sorted them by year and class as best as I could, and put them in a Bankers Box knockoff with lids.


Start by going through your room and putting the papers into piles according to class or year. Those piles become organized into boxes. It's important to label them with each class or year, so you can quickly get to the stack you want. Smaller binders may fit in this type of box. For big binders, you might want to use a legal size box, or take the papers out of the binders and use cardboard dividers inside the box.

u/never0101 · 2 pointsr/vinyl

I recently just purchased my first place after living with inlaws for thr past 3 years. Before I moved, I packed my collection in These bad boys. They survived the move and the storage beautifully. Super heavy duty cardboard, I highly recommend these.

u/gummy_bear_time · 2 pointsr/GiftIdeas

Sounds like she could benefit from a file cart. Don't forget to get hanging file folders and then colorful file folders to go in them. I think the cart is the way to go (i.e., something bigger), which will be useful as her business expands.

I was initially going to suggest a tray organizer, but as someone who used to do a lot of administrative work, I don't think those are effective for business. You just end up stacking papers into random trays, and nothing ever gets thrown out.

Files boxes are a nice compromise if the cart is too big. I used to have one almost identical to this, except by Stanley. (I can't find the Stanley one on Amazon.) Get the one with the handle. And of course, don't forget to get the hanging folders + colorful file folders to go with it!

u/Mohsar · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

Helix Document Tube, Expands from 28 to 49-Inches, Large (61500)

I got this, it's worked well

u/NotAChaosGod · 2 pointsr/boardgames

A lot of people recommend hobby lobby boxes, but I think they're rather too heavy. Do look nice though. If you're not overly concerned with aesthetics, then this storage row is super functional. You can put the base cards in one drawer (money, victory, curses, et al) and then put each expansion in a different drawer. Be a while before you run out of space there.

u/Nobody_is_Lurking · 2 pointsr/comicbooks
u/McFeely_Smackup · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I have a file box (one of these cardboard types) that everything house related goes in. Individual folders inside for appliance manuals, receipts, and most everything else goes in "Misc".

It's really the bare minimum any homeowner should be doing. an active maintenance schedule is like super adult stuff that everyone should do, but nobody does.

u/lefsegirl · 2 pointsr/sewing

It's not pretty, but functional: bankers boxes. Front to back, they are letter file size, and side to side, they are legal size. Two rows of standard patterns fit in the legal size side, and oversize ones (Vogue) fit in the letter size side.

u/dingermann · 1 pointr/vinyl

Find some milk crates

u/pawn89 · 1 pointr/cigars

I just ordered this tupperware, which may or may not be big enough for your needs (I've seen these Iris storage containers in various sizes recommended by other users here, which is why I opted for this brand).

As per your humidification question, the nice thing about Heartfelt beads is that, much like Bovedas, you can't really have too much. Using more than what your actual storage space requires won't hurt you at all.

From the Heartfelt website: "You can use more Hearfelt Beads in your humidor than the minumum amount recommended. The additional Heartfelt Beads will give you more moisture storage and help the humidor recover quicker when it has been opened. The extra Heartfelt Beads will also help compensate for seasonal changes and a less than perfect seal on your humidor."

Hope that helps!

u/Morefunnorule · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

bankers box all the way! They are built for long-term storage. They are sturdy you can stack the games and boxes. write on the outside what's in each now. Cost about $3 a box.

u/surprisepinkmist · 1 pointr/cinematography

Best deal I have found:

I'm not sure how the quality is, but reviews seem favorable.

u/blondepinkwife · 1 pointr/sex

We have this in the closet: Vaultz Locking Chest, Letter and Legal Size, 17.5 x 14 x 12.5 Inches, Black (VZ01008)

It's to keep the kids out.

u/Shy_guy_purple · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I kept mine in a bankers box so I could hide it in the closet...

u/pokerbrowni · 1 pointr/AskMen

Well, some men like flowers too. But I'd say chocolate/candy is always good. Or other small random gifts in line with his interests.

In my case, I'm always interested in new/interesting hand tools like wrenches or screwdrivers, pliers and the like. Or little nonsense electronic gadgets. Like:

u/lakluster · 1 pointr/2000ad

In addition to the Thrill Containment Units already mentioned, these also work decent enough if you tall a shelf: I use them for both 2000ad and megazines.

u/JSchmidt12 · 1 pointr/comicbooks

Depending on how many you're taking, this could do the trick:

It could even go right in your carry on.

Edit: I should've read everything more thoroughly. While this could still do the trick, you'd probably need a couple of them.

u/Thinkinaboutu · 1 pointr/audiophile

Look into getting a record crate such as this one which I got a couple weeks ago:

Lots of different options on amazon if you don't like this one.

It's cheap, looks great, it's classy, and holds your records vertically so they won't warp. Based on your photo, it looks like you should have enough space to the left of the media center, between the speaker. Or you could place it under the table on which the RP3 is sitting.

Just an idea!

u/tboland1 · 1 pointr/audiophile

This. 250 CD's with full jewel cases could fit in one bankers box or similar sized box that you might have lying around. Also, very light in comparison to vinyl. I have ripped all my CD's, and keep them in said Banker's Box, because that's the form factor we store things in. Keeping your CD's proves ownership if it ever came up. Not likely, for sure.

If you have ripped your CD's and you plan on getting rid of the media, you MUST destroy it, not send it on to someone else for them to use.

u/lavender_airship · 1 pointr/graphicnovels

Also, for conventions or signings, I have used this Comic Folio to safely toss both single issues and GNs in a backpack.

u/myrrhmassiel · 1 pointr/comicbookcollecting

...magazine caddies range can dramatically in durability and price, but after a lot of shopping around i eventually settled on ikea's flyt caddies: they're a little bit thin, but they work fine for this use case and were reasonably cost-effective when ordered in bulk, about two dollars apiece... looks looks like ikea have since discontinued all their cheap cardboard caddies; flyt is no longer listed on their own website, but the similar fluns model is on clearance for crazy-cheap, 25¢ apiece!..

u/lastres0rt · 1 pointr/3DS

I find that the smallest of the Really Useful Box series is just the right size to hold a collection of about 20+ carts.

Not as elegant as the Club Nintendo cases, but VERY effective.

u/NeighborhoodGenie · 1 pointr/cigars

I bought this one on Amazon and it will probably more than hold your humi (can measure if you'd like). Works like a champ with an 80g Boveda for me, but a drier climate might take two.

u/midcl · 1 pointr/maille

So far this has been my favorite organization container: The 36 grid container here has subsections which are just barely big enough to fit an entire bag of the anodized aluminum rings I get from ringlord.

u/a1blank · 1 pointr/twilightimperium

I think these are the boxes (amazon). I have a bunch that I use for my other boardgames, so I'm glad to see they fit the cards. Looks like they are a size bigger than the ones in my link.

u/Scorpion13992k · 1 pointr/comicbooks

I usually only collect trades but there are some that have never been collected so I use these BCW Stor-Folio boxes to keep them on a bookshelf. I like to make my own artwork for the front and spine.

u/leslietheriveter · 1 pointr/organization

You could buy archival storage boxes/bankers boxes. Like /u/pro-organizer said, use whatever sorting system works best (alphabetically, chronologically, etc.). Smaller cases can be put in a manila folder and large cases that don't fit in a manila folder can use the folder as a separator. On the tabs of each folder write whatever identifying information your dad usually uses when looking for cases so you'll see it when you take the lid off a box.

u/Potato-In-A-Jacket · 1 pointr/gifsthatkeepongiving

I’m a contractor for the government, working for one of the many 3-4 letter agencies on a help desk; we do walk-ins in the morning, and I have various things on my desk, one of which is this bad boy, and it usually cracks people up.

OP’s little box will be fucking hilarious.

I would suggest buying a stor-folio. They are PERFECT for carrying books at conventions. Here is a link

Also, be aware of the market on certain books. eBay is your friend. Use it to your advantage when dealing with dealers. If they have a book priced at $400 and you can buy one in the same condition on eBay for $250, bring that to their attention. Conventions always have inflated prices.

Here's my full write-up, but TL;DR I used the file box instead of the accordion folder. It's bigger, but the handle is nice, and I can fit anything I want in it (except the overly large map).


FYI, I slightly modified the YASS Gloomhaven setup to make the storage a little more efficient/intuitive and keep all the standee bottoms in the combat bin.

I go into more detail here for anyone interested.


I use a variation of the YASS Gloomhaven setup. You can add an accordion folder if you like to save even more setup/breakdown time. I made a few modifications to the layout to make it more intuitive and keep the standees in the combat box. Here's what my updated layout looks like, and here are the files I used. I also lay my planos flat instead of standing them up as it gives slightly more space at the top to fit the board, etc. FYI, I didn't add the counters label, just left that square blank, but everything else is good to go.

I used a Portable File Box to hold my map tiles, rule books, monster stat cards (although I use Gloomy Companion most of the time), city/road event decks, and unlocked items. There are comparable options on Amazon.

Album of full setup



  1. 3x Plano 3600 boxes. Size 11" x 7.25" x 1.75".
  2. 1x Plano 3601 box. Size 11" X 7.25" X 1.13".
  3. Paper/Card Stock (for printing plano labels)
  4. Zip-lock bags

    Note: the plano 3600 on amazon is a 4 pack. You can find them at Dick's Sporting Goods occaisonally for less $$$: 3600,

    Tape (I didn't use any, but others said they needed it to keep the label on the plano lid)
    The Portable File Box I had laying around
    Amazon File Box with stronger latch
    Hanging File Folders I had laying around


    Units 1 Box:
    No changes needed.

    Units 2 Box:
    I moved the Inox Bodyguards to the Boss slot which I shrunk 1 square by moving one large boss to the terrain box. I moved all of the standee bases to the small plano. I used the extra space to move all of the attack modifier decks in here. I store the number tokens and (useless) curse/bless tokens in the 2 remaining slots I opened up.

    *Small Plano (modifiers/tokens):*
    In the small plano I freed up the whole bottom row by moving the number tokens (which largely go unused) to the terrain box, removing the curse/bless tokens (since they aren't used in the game), and moving the element/HP/EXP markers up one space. I shrunk the single damage markers to a single cell (they fit just fine) to make room. The bottom row now houses the standee bases.

    Terrain Box:*
    I used the small dividers from the 3601 to separate out the traps, water, totem, treasure sections (this makes them easy to pull out). I shrunk the Doors by a square and added a square for traps using the short dividers to keep all 4 traps separate. Chopping out the divider to make room for the 3-hex objects was a lot more work than I expected, but it was worth it. I added in the 2 bosses to the bottom of that section since they don't fit anywhere else (and will likely only be used once each).

I’ve never done it, but I see these little carrier things that look like they hold about 10 floppies. They look like giant wallets or something that would hold a car manual.


Here’s one.

A box
These are fun and will freak people out a bit.

u/neoslith · 1 pointr/dicemasters

Oh! Okay, that makes more sense.

They are called Super Stacker.

The ones I bought were in the store for 88 cents each.

They're about 3" wide, 2" tall, and 2 3/8th" across.

They're the same size as the smallest Really Useful Box but nowhere near as expensive.

I use this

and stick all of the stickers from records I get on it. Warning: There is a big logo on the side they don't show in the pictures

u/tw1zt3d · 1 pointr/comiccon

it couldn't hurt... but unless you plan on being on your phone all day, i'm sure your phone will hold out.

as far as back pack essentials... here's what i put in my backpack. snacks, water, deodorant (it gets quite pungent on the floor), even though panels are listed in the book as well as a map, it's nice to have a notepad with a list of panels you want to go to.. i bring pens, sharpies, colored markers/highlighters... i also bring an adjustable poster tube, so if i buy posters or prints i know they're safe (and you will see these for sale around con for bank)... i also carry a file folder so i have something sturdy to put comics in.

If I'm just playing, I have a messenger bag for my books and a rigid clipboard for my character sheets. Dice are either in a cinched dice bag or my dice vault.

If I'm running a system that requires lots of bits and bobs, like D&D, I have a rolling folding cart that holds everything tidily. If I'm not lugging my stuff very far (just from the car to the game store for instance) I'll just use a cheap banker's box.

I couldn't find a good deal locally so I ordered these off Amazon. For three of them, the price was perfect:

They hold a full case with about two inches extra on the long side of the crate.

While I had a good laugh, I would recommend one of these for a cheap and easy way to store full sheets of sandpaper, as well as sanding blocks and accessories.

u/JustABitEvil · 1 pointr/comicbookcollecting

Definitely bag and board your books, I use a basic binder that zips shut though these were recently recommended to me. On books that you want signed a trick I've picked up is to bag and board it but cut a hole in the front of the bag marked with colored tape, that way it's signed where you want it.

As to who charges for autographs, this tends to vary. In my experience big names (Sterenko, Lee, Claremont etc.) charge anywhere from $10 to $100 where lots of others don't charge at all or ask for donations to charities they support. Roy Thomas signed several of my books for $10 at a conference I went to back in March.

As to grading, I personally do not slab my books because I still love to read them, even my old silver age stuff, though I am considering getting my Stan Lee signed books graded. I would talk to a rep at the convention about the cost and turnaround time.

u/Horoto · 1 pointr/comicbooks

Yep, just found the link here. Not a bad deal at all! I'll probably pick a few of these up just for when I go to comic shops and pick up some floppies.
