Storing discs

I'm fairly certain I'd read somewhere, sometime on DGCR about how people had stored their back-up/collection/spare discs. But I can't find it. If anyone recalls the thread, or if you would like to share, I'd love to here the specifics of brands of containers, etc, that worked for you.

I have about 80-100 discs to store out of sight, but not out of mind. Baby #2 is on the way and my office is g-g-g-gone!

Thanks.

i made one. Do you have a garage or a shed to put it in? They are pretty easy to make out of PVC pipes and I think I paid 20 for mine.

I have 3 boxes made by a local disc golfer specifically for this purpose. Each box holds 30-40 depending on what kind of discs are in there.

Some people use the big plastic storage bins and put towels or the toy foam pool noodles in there to keep the discs from moving around.

The Sterlite containers, 20 quart size. And yes, the foam noodles work perfectly.

Go to Jimmy John's and ask for boxes they get their bread delivered in. They are a perfect size.

Partial to the second one since I built one after those plans. Still holding up great.

Thanks guys for the linkage and info - exactly what I needed. Sterilite and noodles is a real bargain ($1 at Walmart for the storage bin!?!) and would be perfect closet floor fodder, but for stacking/top of closet/expansion I'll likely try your idea eventually Apdrvya.

Cheers.

Keep reading

There aren't any "action shots" but enough to properly showcase any directions/build requirements list.
