Guys, this is what I use to store my resistors, mica caps, safety caps, etc.

I cut the cardboard from Home Depot large moving boxes. I get 2 parts bins from each box. I lay out the pattern and cut it out using my #11 hobby knife. On the fold lines I cut part way through the cardboard. Once cut out I fold it and tape the edges using shipping tape.

The envelopes are #3 coin envelopes that are 4 1/4 high by 2 1/2 wide. I use a piece of 3/4 x 3 long of scotch tape and tape over the bottom flap. This prevents the other envelopes from catching on the flap when replacing the envelope back into the storage box.

I use Aleene's Tacky Glue to glue in the divider. It helps to draw a 1/4 wide space on the "inside" of the box before folding and taping. These lines are then used to locate the divider.

The pictures should provide the details. A pdf drawing of the layout is included with this post.

Good tip. I currently store them in little zip-lock baggies in sleeves in folders. This looks better.

similar here too, can't fit enough of the plastic drawer organizers to fit ALL the values you need or want to stock.
