That’s....actually pretty impressive at a good price. I may have to convert from my current collection of Really Useful Boxes. I think I’m order one to try. Thanks!

Just got my first IRIS organizer based on this thread and love it! (yeah I have a small collection still so only one right now). I particularly love the pull out drawers since I travel to my games and I have an empty drawer right now which will be perfect for transport.

That is what I have been using for a long time now. Yes it is best to take the caster wheels off they can not take the weight of DF and the wheels will collapse on you. I bought a DYMO LabelWriter 450 Thermal Label Printer that I use to print out labels so I can tell what is in each container.

I know that look exactly! I can buy almost anything as long as it is in a container of some kind. Once it is not there, I get the look. Hence, I've already ordered four more of these organizers - they won't be filled until CD arrives, but the impact of that purchase will be mitigated if I keep them organized.

Awesome piece of organizing

It’s amazing how in control your hobby seems when you have it all organized

Then you buy a few more sets and some resin and some third-party stuff - next thing you know the closet is full, there is some of it in the garage, a few sets in the dining toom, some of it stacked on the floor of the family room and your wife is starting to look at you funny

IRIS Storage for Entire DoD

Post by scott102303 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 10:28 pm

I thought I'd pass this onto anyone still looking for storage solutions. As some others have mentioned, the IRIS scrapbook tubs are a pretty good option. There are some available on Amazon that I bought that have worked good for me so far. I didn't use the optional casters but stacked them 2-high with a couple screws along the sides to keep them from sliding off of each other. I have the entire DoD (all 15 encounters) in 16 of the tubs, organized as follows:

Vaulted Walls
Passage Walls
Vaulted Corners
2x2/4x4/1x4 Floors
8x8 Floors, Dais pieces
Doors
Magnetic Walls, Special Floors, Traps
Vaulted Curve Walls, Diagonal Walls
LED Pieces
Puzzle Floors, Ledges, 1x1/1x2 floors
Elevations
Classic Walls, corners, Overflow Vaulted Walls
Sysuul - Floors, Walls, Doors
Sysuul - Corners & Flash pieces
Burrows - Intersections, Rooms, Elevation
Burrows - Passages, Insect Miniatures

The four Elevation Platforms and the terrain trays I put in an under-the-bed sized plastic tub that is about 34x16x5. Some of the tubs are full - some have some space to add a few additional sets. The link to the IRIS 6-drawer scrapbook organizer I used is below - they run around $40 each. 3 of them give 18 of the tubs, so there is a couple left. I bought 4 and am filling them with some more DF as I buy them.
