Default Drum hardware storage suggestions

Hi VDF folks,
I need to reorganize my droom (aka drum room) - what suggestions do you have for hardware storage (stands, pedals etc): long plastic bins? Something homemade? Or maybe something originally designed for another purpose? Pictures of what you have would be awesome.
I already have two of the “trap” cases and one long case that has wheels. I’m thinking of something that could fit on shelving.
1960s Ralston (Star) set in Red Agate Pearl 12/12/16/20
1961 Ludwig Cocktail Lounge drum 24 x 16 in blue sparkle
1966 Ludwig Hollywoods in Sky Blue Pearl 12/13/16/22
1971 Ludwig Super Classics in Blue Sparkle 13/16/22
1976 Ludwig Vistalites in Blue 13/14/16/22
70s/80s Ludwig orphans in Black Cortex "Bonham" style 14/16/18/20/26 (B/O Badges)

Many snares

Default Re: Drum hardware storage suggestions

I have slowly converted all of my hardware and small instrument storage on shelves to plastic bins. I will attach some photos that were taken a while ago and are an intermediate stage. Sorry for the fuzzy photography. I mark the sides and top with a black felt tip marker and use some Goof Off to erase the label if I change the contents. I collect pedals and wrap them in cheap cotton bar towels that I buy at Wally World inside the bins. It keeps them from scratching each other and keeps the various parts and beater together in the bin. I used to keep everything in printer paper boxes but that only works up to a certain size. I keep sticks and mallets in the light weight aluminum tool "brief case" boxes that I buy at the big box hardware stores.
