MF storage
« on: January 24, 2009, 03:21:51 PM »
I've got literally tons of MFs which are stored in plastic drawers in my shop right now. It works, but I'm wondering if there is something out there that is better.

So my question, how are you storing your MFs?

Plastic storage bins, drawers.  Then the drawers are in my cabinet.  However my cabinet is pretty full so I don't know what to do.

I also keep mine in clear plastic storage tubs.  I store an assortment in my roll around cart drawer to use from during a detail, then "restock it" when I'm cleaning up afterwards. 

My friend has implemented this method of storage to help cut down on the incorrect towel being used by his employees. 
He purchased 3 of the heavy duty, flip top recycling bins and mounted them to the wall at his shop.  They are labeled and color coordinated for towel useage.  Looks very cool as well.

Those are the bins/drawers I use.  They fit nicely in my cabinet.
