I’ve searched for a storage solution from the beginning of my collection. At first I started collecting fountain pens but soon rediscovered the mechanical pencils.
The first solutions for storage where the coloured pens boxes,clear plastic, I had.
The second try was with some used notebooks with hard covers.
Last year I discovered a metal coloured pencils box at the local supermarket. I took out the plastic tray and made my own from a 3mm foam board.
I found also a black cardboard box with coloured pencils that has 2 trays. Repeated the process, made my own trays and tried
to organize things and that is always a challenge.
And these solutions are cheap…the metal boxes were $8 and the black boxes with trays were $10
