I keep some of my most used dubbing types and colors in those clear plastic coin holders, the quarter size. They have a screw-on cap. I keep them lined up on the shelf above my tying surface where they're easy to grab. I also keep beads and small items in them. They are clear, so you don't have to open each one looking for whatever you're looking for. When I run low, I just pack some more in from my main stash.

another good storage that everyone has is empty hook boxes

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Or clear 35mm film canisters. Punch a hole in cover.

Try coin collecters wallets, the type they use to put into ring binders, they store flat(ish) give good visual access and can be written on with permanent markers. The ones I use hold 20 coins per wallet, another similar one are 35mm slide wallets, similar thing just a different source.

.......and unlike the Flyrite polypropylene dubbing portfolio, if they're reasonably good archival quality sheets,
the sides of the pockets don't split when you try to extract something.
