Hi guys, newbie spriter here. Very Happy

I just bought a grande tub of 22,000 beads, and I'm sorting through 'em, picking out colors, etc. etc. I already sorted about 5,000 from another kit I have.

My question is: What would be a good way to store them? Right now, I just have each color separated into plastic sandwich bags until I find a more permanent solution. Someone suggested a tackle box, but I figured I wouldn't be able to find one that could hold a large number of beads in each compartment. Can anyone recommend some kind of box or storage system I could use for my beads?

Thanks!

HIYA IVE JUST RECENTLY BOUGHT TWO GARDEN SEED TRAYS FROM HOME BARGAINS THEY WERE 1.50 EACH AND HAVE ABOUT 16 COMPARTMENTS, I AM LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BETTER FOR LONG TERM BUT THESE HAVE BEEN PERFECT TO STORE THEM IN. YOU COULD ALSO TRY SCREW BOXES,
HOPE THIS HELPS

Go to a craft store and grab some of these. They have 17 compartments (16 smaller, 1 larger) that I've been using. I have 7 of them sorted by shade and it works amazing. Smile Michael's, Hobby Lobby, JoAnne's, or even a Blick's will have them. Not sure what art stores are in NY, but that's a start. They run like, $2 or so.

Thanks for the information. I actually found the 17 compartment boxes online and ordered a few..then a few weeks later I found out that my local Wal Mart actually carries them, too! I have 4 of them now, couldn't be happier.
