Mini DV storage boxes

Anyone have any suggestions on some cardboard or plastic storage boxes for Mini DV tapes?

I picked them up at Staples Business Depot, the bottom drawer is a bit bigger and works perfectly for Hi-8 or D8 tapes.

Not quite 3 across, I was hoping when I bought them they would fit three, but not quite.

Safe storage DV tapes

I use a fire and water proof case with a lock. After years of filming I do not want to lose everythng in a fire or if a water pipe breaks in my house..

These are my favorite miniDV holders (click here).

I also store the whole thing in a large fire/water proof safe so I don't lose anything accidentally.

There's a small one hanging on my wall for tapes that are currently being used, but I had to put a strip of velcro on it so the tapes didn't spill to the floor when I bumped it accidentally.

How much are they, are they available at any Staples, and do you have a link?
