Good Morning Guys,

 

Looking for some storage solution for various tying materials.  The old Plano tackle box I've been using is just too limiting.

 

Any ideas/suggestions for flat plastic trays that are modular?  Preferably, something that can be customized in terms of internal trays?

 

TIA!

G

take a walk through your local walmart, hobby store, dollar store or big box hardware store for storage solutions

I use all the above and store those in a large tote bin. The shoe boxes are especially useful and come in a few sizes and styles for varying prices. I also like these https://www.dollartr...ge-cases/206348 for small items like hooks or bead chain: several will fit inside one of the other containers such as a shoe box. The disposable foil loaf pans make handy open containers and stack inside each other. Walk through the big box store and all the dollar stores with an open mind and you will find many possible solutions.
