This is similar to what I use. Got the one that has narrower drawers, but it fits import figures really nicely.
No tops. Amazon
I wish they were a bit deeper...8" instead of 6", but it's better than the three tackle boxes of unorganized crap I had.
All of my bagged items, and some tools, are in there. Have all of my hair in one of the tackle boxes below the desk. All of my hooks, beads, eyes, etc are in the boxes below the shelf.
I think something like this would be a good option if you have various types of screws and nails.

Awesome. I highly recommend investing in one of these soon ;) it will change your life.
So much time I spent on projects was spent finding things, so I get things done so much quicker now.
What projects have you done so far?
Of course! Here are a few photos. I keep my frequently used full size items and new products in the clear organizer in the middle of the dresser. The hardware drawers are almost all beauty box samples separated by product type. (I use the bottom row for other full size products like lipsticks.)
I bought it off of Amazon here.
I got them from Amazon (Akro-Mils 10124 24 Drawer Plastic... [link] ), but you'll also see them at most hardware stores.
Was getting overwhelmed by sprues and bits, so I bought these:
I bought something like this for under 10€ at Aldi. One of the best and most useful investments in the hobby I ever made.
The specific ones I buy are [link] but there are plenty out there, you're just looking for general hardware storage. People often stock them in warehouses+shops for screws, bolts etc.
I've found these can fit most Hot Toys pieces [link] but you may want a general cabinet or drawer for the really big stuff like stands.
I have two of each of these and they are the best. Come with dividers for the bigger drawers as well.
Was just posting about this in /r/hottoys the other day. And this really is the way to go [link]
I'm up to three at this point but I'll be adding a fourth before long because I keep adding to my Hot Toys and they tend to require the larger drawers.
Small baggies for now. Once I get more I’m going to get this [link]
I'll give a plus on the akro-mils drawers. I have the smaller one though
:) Have fun spending on Amazon ! Hehe

My suggestion for storage - [link]
These. They also make a 44 drawer and 64 drawer version. Cheap, good quality, and just the right size for holding keyboard bits. I highly recommend them! (I was not paid for this advertising, but if Akro Mills wants to pay me I won't say no)
Thanks! The brewery is my magnum opus. If you know anything about the brewing process, the setup is relatively accurate (there's some "hand-waving").
For expanding: have a to-be-sorted bin (which will be large at first) and get a bunch of these. Sort by piece type, not by color. Forgot where I ended up finding them, but google "lego drawer labels" and there's a lot out there. Over time, buy more drawers and determine what pieces are abundant, which are rare and sort accordingly. I just winged it to be honest and don't be too obsessed with worrying about every piece being sorted correctly.
This is what mine looks like now
this is a godsend and used my wife's label maker to label all the drawers and what not. it makes things so simple and clean
I would get this and this. Together, they're $60~, but they look good enough that I'll probably get them soon-ish.
If you get these, and want labels, this guy has ready-to-print stuff, but you'll also need a label printer thingy. link
You don't need to, but I want to. These are the shelves I'm getting. [link]
Going to grab six of them at first once the color sort is complete. It's a lot easier to sort by type when the color is already done. When I say type I don't mean one drawer for each specific brick, more like one for slopes, one for bricks, one for modified bricks. All color sorted and ready to go.
