Cabela's is selling a rack that will hold 8 of the Flambeau T4006/7 boxes that Sirket recommended. Not as nice looking as Sirket's shelving but at $13 is priced very reasonably. They also have the 4006/7 for under $4. I also learned those flambeau boxes are considered Plano 3600 size so they will fit in tackle boxes/cases that are designed for those.

Nice find! I didn't know they corresponded to a standard size.

Raaco storage cabinets have loads of little drawers and a few big ones which are ideal for electronics. The cabinets themselves can be a bit cheap but are generally okay.

Louvre panels and buckets are also ideal for storing larger components (LCDs, sockets, PCBs etc.) and tools

With both of these you can remove individual drawers/bins so you have easy access to the parts on your bench when building something and then put them back when finished. By chance my Brother P-Touch QL-560 label printer happens to print labels that fit perfectly into the slots on the front of the drawers of the Raaco units so I don't even have to stick them on (they rest there on the paper backing they come with.)

I use small Plano tackle boxes. If you buy them on sale from a local sporting goods store they run about $2-$4 each and one or two can hold all the parts for a project.

I label each section with the component name/value so I can just pick it out quickly while building.

I know it's not the best for "stock" parts, but it sure makes finding what you need when you're building something a breeze.
