Well, where do you put your beads in? Do you have like a special box for them or something?

I use an old box that's made to hold beads, but there aren't enough sections for all the colours I use. In general, they go in whatever containers I can find - paper cups, plastic bags, anything. As long as I can keep then sorted, I'm fine.
All of that seems to make its way to my bedroom floor in the end, though Neutral

Empty plastic chinese cartons Razz Yes, every box is a different colour.
work fantastic, sucure but easy to open, and no fiddlyness to pick beads out due to its wide open top.

I bought plastic boxes for sewing thread. They have 16 small sections and one big section. I use four boxes altogether.
The big sections hold white, black and clear which I use or have a lot of. The four box has the glitter colour, overflow colours and weird beads that are too long or funny colours that appear at random. Like Bronze.

That's what I do, too. I try to fill the large areas with the major colors like red, blue, green, yellow, etc. I then try to keep all similar colors in the same container. I do keep my blacks in a separate container, though, which is an empty screw-on cap container from when I first bought some beads. I'm keeping my white in the cover of a 100-CD spindle until I can sort out my other screw-on lid bucket. (It's a big mix so it'll be a while)

I got those reusable/disposable Gladware containers. Big enough to dig in and grab a good handful without beads flying around the room but small enough to fit into a medium-sized box. I got a knock-off brand that came in packs of 8 or so and the lids fit nice and tight so no spills! Well...I spilled some once, but it was all my fault.

These are like the ones I used:

I bought a couple chest of drawers type things from Home Depot (normally used for things like nuts and bolts and nails etc.), 30 smaller drawers each for colors I have/use less of, and nine large drawers each for those neccesities like black and white... they work really well and all I have to do is stand them face to face to keep things from falling out... I can even use one of the larger drawers to store the twezzers and strings and such...

Two big Bead tubs right now. And my Carpet. You could seriously make things just from the beads on my carpet. And I did. A 3Dish Yellow Sonic Spring. XD

I have a readily available tacklebox with 4 shelves and 12 compartments per shelf... hold 1000 beads each compartment... I have all my perler beads in those organized by number (ridiculus I know, but when I first ordered I wanted to get them in order and apparently like colored wasn't first option, because they go from 01, 02, 03 and such only skipping the unknown and discontinued colors... but I know that the neon and transparent mix colors have a number, but no perler rep that I've talked to has known... apparently I've talked to the wrong people... So, anyway, my tacklebox is for the times I want to make a sprite on the fly or if/when I go to a craft show, I can make smaller commissions on the spot... (that's the plan at least)

But I also have two other similair shelves (no cool tacklebox holder though) for some of my hama's and a box-lid for the rest...

I also have a sizeable PomTea Jar collection that I have been putting the beads that don't fit into the tacklebox (anything over 1000) and each jar holds roughly 2500... I told Pinkdramon that I would show my materials, so I'll be posting the PomTea jars, tacklebox shelf system, and the box lid of wonders shortly... probably around the same time I get to ironing Zeromus and photographing him... that way I can show the board materials I use as well... ^^
