Here's my storage, its simply a metal cookie box.
the nice thing about my box is that not only the blade packages fit inside the box but also two boxes on top of each other fit perfectly into one of the bathroom drawers with a little room to be able to get them out of there without any trouble.But of course that depends totally on whatever bathroom furniture you have.
( I have still two empty boxes waiting to take on any RBAS scores ).

Great ideas fellas, putting my old cigar box to shame.
Does anybody put rice in blade containers to soak up moisture for long term storage?
even though modern blades are stainless steel, I am still paranoid about the blades holding their edge for 10+ years.
I ask because I used rice to soak up moisture from a tv remote after coffee split on it and it actually did the job and the remote started working after being in a container full of rice for two days.
I've seen people and restaurants put rice in salt shakers. I don't worry about the long term, but I do keep my blade storage in the bedroom.
Nick Rivers: Hillary. That's an unusual name.
Hillary Flammond: It's a German name. It means 'she whose bosoms defy gravity'.
Nick Rivers: I'm pleased to meet you. My name's Nick.
Hillary Flammond: Nick? What does that mean?
Nick Rivers: Oh, nothing. My dad thought of it while he was shaving.
The RBAD was off the chain so I switched up from a cardboard box to this fishing tackle box.
After the acquisition of those NOS Boots Super Stainless (rebranded Made In England Wilkinson Swords) which seem to be just about the ultimate blade for me, my RBAD is pretty much winding down.
I've got another 30 of the vintage Boots in the post and I'm watching 50 Supermax Blue Diamond on eBay.
Oh yeah...and I want some more 7 O'Clock Blacks:

This thread makes me want to ask my dad to make me a blade bread box.
Here's how I set up TGBE blades. Not "mine" but I thought I'd share the storage, bought from Meijer in their craft section.
Now these are my personal blades.
In my storage cab.
And in the medicine cab. The blue tub is what I am working though now, sampling different blades.
The blades in the baggie are all different blades I've tried, or am currently sampling. I've saved one of every blade I've used.

If you only come face to face with your own mistakes once or twice in your life it's bound to be extra painful. I face mine every day--that way they ain't usually much worse than a dry shave.”― Larry McMurtry, Lonesome Dove
