Default streamer box recomendations

My simms large boat bag is struggling to keep all my boxes in it currently and my streamer collection is exploding by the day.

I currently have an umpqua boat box - large, filled to the brim with big streamers, a cliff bugger barn- large, filled to the brim, and a wallet set up for saltwater fishing filled to the max.

I was thinking either 3 of the new MFC boat box's (slightly smaller than the other two boat boxes, but with the added benefit of the leaf divider in it

OR

a series of plastic planno type boxes that will hold a pile of streamers and allow arrangement for size and color (sizes from 1/2 in to 5-6 inches, which that majority of my flies are). i am worried that these boxes, while compact, will not fit a ton of flies per box and take up more space than they are worth. anyone have any input? Im guessing at any given time i am rolling with 200+ streamers.

Send them to me, and I will properly sacrifice them to the fishing gods- a dozen for the mighty god of the submerged stick, a dozen for the vengeful god of the submerged rock, and two dozen for the omnipotent god of the tree in my back-cast area.

Seriously though- I went through this kind of **** when I was tournament bass fishing. I got jaded with the whole experience, and downsized everything and started fishing rivers instead. If I can't carry it, it stays home.
