Harbor Freight has some great sale prices on various plastic storage boxes!

What sizes are they? Do you mean for tying materials or flies?

visited a local tobacconist a couple of months ago looking for real pipe cleaners, and found a gold mine in the form of cigar boxes. i had no idea cigars still came in those great cedar boxes! they're strong so you can stack them really high, and they're colorful so your shelf looks great, and they're light-tight, too.

now the reason i bring them up in this thread is to ask about moth repellents. plastic keeps the room from smelling of moth balls, and is good defense against creepy-crawlies. is the cedar in the cigar boxes sufficient to keep away the little baddies, or should i investigate more plastic boxes?

Some would suit some tying materials, the ones I picked up are for hook storage. There is a set up with 24 individual hook size containers inside a larger container, it was $2.99 last night (I think the sale is on until Dec 14th). There is quite a variety.

Casey - you can use a piece of that yellow no pest strip like you see hanging in the old diner kitchen:) There is a bit of a discussion at I would put it in a small container with hole in it (old film can if you still have those or pill bottle but not sure if will react with the plastic) so feathers/fur/etc don't touch it. Just change it once in awhile. And don't soak the quill in your mouth before you tie it on.
