Default Re: Family Friendly Organizer???

My early material holders were clear plastic page protectors. They come in a variety of pocket sizes-the buisness card size is the same size as may hook pakages- to hold various sizes and amounts of material. The page protectors went into 3 ring binders and the binders got replaced with bigger binders as the stash grew. My vise, tools, glues, and a couple of compartment boxes of beads, thread etc went into my Grandpa's old cedar tackle box. All the binders and the tackle box went onto a high shelf when not in use to keep the cats out of them.
When I got a designated tying desk-an old hollow wood door- I got a two drawer file cabinet to serve as "legs" on one end and all the page protectors went into hanging files in the file cabinet.
On the few occaisions when I took my tying a-travelin', I pulled the page protectors for the materials I thought I'd need, put them in a thinner binder, and the binder and tackle box went with me.
On the con side: There is some stuff that won't fit well in page protectors- Whiting 100's are just a shade too long. Ditto some capes and pheasant tails. More than half of one drawer in full of sheets and chunks of all kinds of foam. I need a new space for it.
Since no one else mentioned it, search tying desks and tying stations herein for more ideas.
