minidv storage creative ideas

i wonder if any one has any good tips on what you store your tapes in...

i'm looking for some creative ideas, is there a tupper ware kit that works well?

we have been using Bryco minidv racks, but they are not good for long term storage...

i like keeping my tapes in uline gift boxes, they are white so they are easy to label, usually have a small box with two tapes or larger 5 box tape http://www.uline.com/Browse_Listing_5602.asp, then put that box into a plastic flat box that holds about 20 gift boxes then label it..works well but other ideas are welcome

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