Fish Tackle Box Holds Some DAF Accessories

I intended to add photos to my Interview. Here are some of a fish tackle box that I use to store some of my doll and action figure accessories.















Pros: It holds a lot of small stuff. Keeps things tidy. Easy pull open and push shut. Doesn't take up a lot of space.

Cons: If it fell backward, pieces can fall out since the back is not fully closed. Have to open most drawers to see what is stored in the drawer. Labels attached would speed up finding specific accessories.

Cool storage idea. Add labels; use baggies in each compartment to avoid losing the small items in the event of a fall, or use cardstock or cardboard to close the back.

This is nice! For my small stuff I use those 99 cents bead storage boxes from Michaels. I do like being able to coordinate each box with something different so I can just pull that one when I working.

Biglots used to have some inexpensive tackle boxes like what you have and then they had the nerve to raise the price by $2.50. Pfft.

Thank you for sharing this, Dana! I think that I have my dad's old tackle box that he used to store small things. I may have to bring it out and store some of my dolly things there. Thanks for the idea!

Hi Muff, LimbeDolls, Marta, and Roxanne! Thanks for the tip about the bead boxes from Michaels, Muff. I will look at them the next time I am there. You're welcome regarding the suggestion. And I appreciate hearing your tips, too.

I love see how other collectors store their stuff. This is a nice solution.

Thanks, Robin! I love seeing how other collectors store their stuff, too. I get to see what people have and how they organize it.

Yes, I confess, D7ana is nosy ;-D

You're welcome, Chynadoll! We do have to watch our small things ;-D

They add so much to a photo and/or scene.
