Those who have followed me for some time may know that one of my bugbears for robotics, electronics and lego was finding an effective way to store many small components, not waste space, but have them easily retrievable.

I have tried various methods, fishing tackle trays, large component racks, sealy bags in self made boxes (which was okay), but all came with flaws or lead to trying too many slots before the required component was found.

I’ve now come across an awesome instructable:

Ultimate Parts Storage which I should find the time to reorganise my parts into. The basic idea is sealy bags in plastic document protectors in folders, using dividers. The author describes it as embarrassingly simple - however, I do know that arriving at an amazingly simple solution to what seemed like a complicated and difficult problem is sometimes the work of genius.
