Standard bead craft boxes with plastic dividers. Cheap and does the job.

I've been using 3 tier small plastic boxes like these -- I got mine at a flying tiger store locally but it's the same design. It works well because you can turn the box around and see instantly what's in each compartment, and you can shift the trays from one to box to another. I can fit surprisingly large numbers of things into each compartment without a lot of wasted space.

Yeah, I'm not worried about the tiles themselves. I have a couple of Ikea Alex cabinets that I have that stuff in (and some other plastic bins I used prior to that sitting in a closet somewhere). I'm mainly talking about tables, chairs, fireplaces, church pews, beds, graveyards, crypts, carpets, bookshelves, dear god what have I done there are so many little tiny things everywhere! ;P

Well plastic boxes are only for the little stuff. For the main DF stuff and all that tonnage, I use a full strength steel tool cabinet. Each of the ten drawers is rated for 50 or 100lbs of load capacity. It is a nice one with a hardwood worktop so it looks nice in the game room. Since it is on 6" rubber wheels, it can roll off into the corner behind the stairs when not needed and comes to that table when we need/want to build stuff.

Huh, I didn't think about loose pluck foam *in* the Alex cabinets. I will have to wait til I get my KSV stuff and see how much room I have left over.

But it looks like pluck foam and plastic boxes are still the most common way. I guess I just need to expand my collection and start organizing. Thanks everyone!

At the moment all our Dwarvenite is stuffed into whatever box or orifice was empty at the time:

That was to be fair a very temporary solution ;)
They are now mostly in plastic Drawers and Useful boxes

For "fiddly bits" and small stuff I have various plastic boxes. One box for stuff like pillars and structural elements. another box for furniture (tables, bookcases, desks, alters, and anything like that). Another box for things like wagons and siege engines. Another box for water elements and walls and fences. Almost all of this is ether dwarvenite, or plastic items. So far I do not have much in the way of really breakable stuff, which makes storage far less of a headache. For all the really small stuff (like plates of food or table top items) I have a multi compartment sort of like the one Unclebilly posted to store that stuff so it is easier to find.
