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, then put that box into a plastic flat box that holds about 20 gift boxes then label well but other ideas are welcome

Here's what I use

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