I'm a newbie, but I've started using Really Useful Boxes from Office Depot. The 7 litre box is nice and shallow and is 12 x 12. I was able to put all my Tudor pieces in one, all my Stone pieces in another, my Sewer pieces, etc. of course I'm up to about 7 boxes now and growing...
I am partial to Really Useful Boxes as well and use them for all my dwarvenite except my caverns (which go in the huge Sterlite tub)

Early on I stored my CBS in the two Tote bags I got with it. Which had two problems that I think are worth noting.
1 - they were heavy
2 - because they were heavy any items at the bottom were subject to warping.

Dwarvenite while robust is also flexible and enough weight will cause it to 'reshape'.
I had an issue with CBS floors which I thought were flat but I managed to get a rogue chimney underneath the bottom floor and the weight of all the floors stacked up caused the bottoms ones to warp.

A little frustrating but easily cured with strong thumbs and heavy books :)

I really like the 12x12 paper crafter boxes - super cheap and you can fit a TON of the dungeon walls in them

I use all manner of sterlite tubs for caverns and accesories - for the city builder stuff their tiny 3 drawer set is like magic - pull out a set of drawers and start building, everything you need is at your finger tips:

The factory paint does, indeed, hold up. But the majority of my pieces I painted myself using artist's acrylic, and they get plenty banged and shuffled and scraped. Absolutely no problems over the last 2.5 years.

Thanks for all the replies! AnimeSensei, those were some fantastic pictures of your collection in that thread you linked. I don't think i'll have anything near that elaborate for storage though (at least to start!). I know the Dwarvenite itself is nearly indestructible, but how durable is the paint? If I keep my tiles loose in a couple bins will the paint get worn off from them banging into each other as I dig out pieces?
The paint holds up, no worries.

Deeper in that thread is a bunch of other storage ideas. I know some people buy some rolling shelves you can get at Costco or Sam's Club that are around $30. I use my IKEA Alex units and sterilite bins, though I'm out of space.

I toss (literally, from the table to the floor where the bin is when I am cleaning up) my Dwarventite into large sterlite bins and have not seen even so much as a smudge or scratch on the paint!
