I found these containers at a local store, but, they are available a lot of places. The link is to a box that is perfect for tons of hackle packages but I have bought various sizes and they work terrific. Also with an online purchase they were 50% off so they were as cheap online as they were in the store. Just an F.Y.I.
I don't work nor am I affiliated with them, but, these are worth checking out.

It is funny but I am looking at the exact same one, the reason, I am pretty cheap myself. I just like the shallow box that allows me to sort a little easier by size of the hackle, etc. I now store my bigger packages, like flank feathers, in the Sterilte box and moved the thinner hackle, CDC, and marabou's to the shallower boxes. I'm notorious for having a messy tying table and the shallow boxes get knocked off the table less often, either because I'm a pig or clumsy. Haha

Exactly !

Inexpensive additional storage.

Normally stacked on top of my book cases (reorganizing today).

When I start tying for seasonal flies for spring creeks, summer trout fishing, or salmon and steelhead fishing
I found keeping the commonly used items in these totes really keeps my tying station well organized and CLEAR !!!

To add to the mix, look in the Christmas storage boxes on clearance right now. There is a Snapware ornament storage container that is something like 8x12. They are actually 4 containers that snap together one on top of the other with a single lid. Too small for full hackle patches, but I have sturng hackle in one, marabou in another, packs of dyed mallard in another, zonkers in one, mag zonkers in another, and so on. Keeps everything separate but together in a single container when they are all hooked together.

A huge site with lots of beads and storage. Most things are for bead storage but it has a huge selection.

Thanks Deeky, I bought one today with 3 sections. My first thought when I saw it was, "I'll be a bit more organized when I take a few items on a trip to tie at night". I dropped a box once as I was walking into a lodge and ended up chasing small bags of feathers around a windy parking lot. I doubt that'll happen now.
Thanks FishDragon, I was looking for those for bead heads for my home station. They sure have enough to pick from.
I appreciate, guys.
