    Can you share what you use (if anything) for storing puzzles and related stuff used for puzzle maintenance. Right now, I'm using random desk drawers and my computing desktop.

    Ive got a nice plexiglass shelf that I made to store all of my puzzles on. Right now it holds about 30 of them. I'm in need of a new shelf or an addition to this one though. My collection has grown to about 38 at the moment with more on the way. The ones that don't fit onto the plexiglass shelf I have displayed on a small wooden shelf beside it.

    I use my desk drawer for tools and Traxxas. I have 3 small red plastic, lock together containers that I use for parts. One has stickers, one screws, springs and cores, and the last has misc. leftover parts.

    Stacked up in a pile on my front room floor. All tools and lube are dotted around the house in various draws. I also keep a cube by the toilet. True story.

    We could put up pole on that one - surely a majority of the truly dedicated :)

    All are almost always on my desk scattered around. Or at the moment 3 of my 3x3s are in my locker at school. But mostly on my desk.

    I have two different drawers for puzzles/lube/etc, and I also keep a few that I use everyday on my desk. One drawer has puzzles I more frequently use, and the other has broken/bad puzzles.

    All my puzzles are standing on my table, except my broken Rubiks that has a special place on a shelf. Lube and screwdrivers are in a locker together with vacuum cleaner, other tools, medicines and stuff like that. Spare parts and stickers are in the awesome DC Comics box that my Batman Converse shoes came in :p

    I have no organization whatsoever. It's just scattered around my room at random. However, I seem to be able to find anything except for my timer.

    My desk holds my Rubik's brand and my stackmat bag, which has various items in it. (Timer, stickers, blindfold, screwdriver, batteries (for my timer) and those competition name tags.) My other puzzles are right next to my chair, in a plastic Walmart bag, all layed out nicely, they're not stacked on top of each other. Also on my desk, I have a Guhong and a Lingyun in their respective boxes next to my stackmat bag.

    Just on my desk. I only have 16 puzzles so that's okay. I just have enough space now though so if I buy anymore cubes I'll have to find another place for them. As for tools; screwdriver under my keyboard and a can of silicon spray on my desk as well.

    They're all on my headboard, which is like a shelf.

    But I keep my screwdriver, stickers and lube in a box in a closet.
     
  15. I don't have many puzzles, so I keep em in a small drawer which should have been used for fine china because it is padded, but I use it because it is close to our living room computer.

    I keep all my cubes on the desk for the computer which is mine 90% of the time. That's all my puzzles (will be a total of 9 when my package from the Cubicle arrives) and my blindfold.

    My mains are in a corner on the settee by where I put my laptop when I use it; my old Rubik's storebought and my broken Meffert's pyraminx on my desk, and the old toothbrush I use to clean my Zhanchi is usually kept in my pen drawer.
