    Show your strap storage

    This is my strap-drawer. I bought quite a few in 2018 and it’s now overflowing.

    Looking forward to seeing your weird and wonderful solutions...

    MUJI, the acrylic 4-drawer unit doesn't appear to be available at the moment but there are a few alternatives.

    http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=9&Sub=39


    The bracelet boxes are pill boxes with the short dividers removed (the long central one is fixed). There's a similar sized box available without any dividers.

    Brilliant thank you. Now I have a project to build a cabinet to hold the pill boxes lol.

    I thought mine was pretty organised until I saw some of these.
    I keep mine in a fudge tin in the man draw.

    Judging by what I see in this thread I don't think my storage will remain adequate for long:

    Better start looking for a better solution

    I like the Muji solution bit shipping to the Netherlands is £29.95...

    Found and ordered this one, will post when it arrives which will likely take a few weeks.

    I ordered this wooden toolbox some time ago from eBay, can't find them listed now, which is a shame as it is perfect with strap and other storage in the top and bottom two draws for watches

    Exactly how I felt when I stumbled across it! Itís an awesome bit of kit for the money. I was going to make something, but at £90 it just didnít make sense not to buy it.
