I keep all my resin stored in my 15 drawer flat filing cabinet also in there is any fragile things not Dwarven Forge. For all my other Dwaven Forge stuff from KS1-KS5 I use stack on IRIS 6-Drawer Scrapbook Carts you can stack 2 on top of each other making it 12 high. You can also break it down to any combination you want. I have some stack that are 10 high that are sitting on a book shelf. I then us a DYMO LabelWriter 450 to put a label on each container so I know what is in it. For my small and medium sized miniatures I use Akro-Mils Drawer Plastic Parts Storage Hardware and Craft Cabinet to store them in. I use a Brother label maker to mark what is in each drawer of them. Then for large and above miniatures I store them on a CD/VCR storage book case. Now granted I have an entire room detacted for storage and playing games in, so room has not become an problem yet but it is getting tight on space now. This is one wall and one corner of the room to show how it looks.

This one still have some empty storage containers that will be used for some of the KS5 stuff. I have not put any of it into storage yet. I need to wait until I get it all in so I know what will fit in what container.

I have thought about painting a small subtle indicator on the tops of the magnetic walls to make it easier to locate in the storage drawer and also in a complex. Those wall features are not all visible when the players first encounter them (kind makes a trap useless if everyone can see it ahead of time...that is what repeated MMO dungeons are for....take 10 strides and then jump over the known trap...along the right side of the passageway.

Mine, within a category like dungeons or caverns, are basically broken up by structural vs small. All the small pieces and decoration (columns, furnishings, magnetic pieces, some stairs, 1x1 and 1x2 floors, etc...) go in a compartmentalized container like a tackle box or crafting organizer. The bigger pieces are what I think of as structural... I have smaller boxes, and/or tubs, and/or cardboard dividers in my larger bins.
I take a similar approach as Vegomatic. It's generally worked so far. Though I do think that with my DOD I plan to separate out the LED and magnetic walls/corners (probably just in a gallon Ziploc or something within the broader dungeons storage bin) so that I can more readily identify those accent pieces without hunting through every piece.

I really should go through all my LEDS and just remove the batteries, I use them so seldom

As a side note: I also pull all the batteries and put them in the organizer... as I never know how long the pieces will sit between uses.
Hmmmmm, I really should do this...
Yeah— I also should follow this advice also...
I did get a bunch of batteries just in case though.

Personally I just have a bunch of stackable bins with latchable lids (from container store) organized by type: walls, floors, special such as LED, interior dressings, etc. granted— the number of bins is way more than I care to admit. I have yet to decide if I will keep the DOD separated by encounter or not— but I assume not.

Harneloot, mine do not. I just isolated them in total darkness to be sure. If you are concerned, instead of pulling all the batteries out you could just unplug the led - it will break the circuit and not drain the battery if your switch is not 100%. Though entropy comes for all things in the end - especially batteries.

Anyone else noticed that the long wall pieces with two LED fixtures stay dimly lit even when the switch is turned off? Might have to start doing what Veg suggests above...

And remember your storage changes drastically after you make massive retail order after massive retail order
