Anyway, I am a big fan of all the local bead shops and recommend you support them as much as you can. So, have you checked yours for any bead storage ideas?
You can also check out craft shops. You may well find that they have storage solutions for other crafts which would also work well for beading.

So, if you need a medium sized box that will let you stack your existing tubes of beads, where might you find such a thing? …have you thought about trying charity shops or thrift stores? What about a hardware or DIY store?
Plastic microwave containers are surprisingly good options! So, are plastic lunch boxes…
Think about it, maybe you don’t have to spend a fortune on fancy custom-made storage solutions…
Also, try checking out bead groups on social media – you’ll find a lot of conversations about quirky bead storage ideas. One of my FB followers (thank you Sandy!) threw out a couple of great suggestions… cans from Parmesan cheese or try the KFC single serve side containers!
