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

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.
