If you have a drawer available in the study or basement or wherever the mancave is, then buy some Pelican dividers at B&H, Adorama, etc., and store the gear there. The dividers come in various heights, length and depths, depending on the Pelican case that they are meant for. Might be fun also to DIY.

I have a Pelican 1510 wheeled carryon, and the interior is exactly the size of one of the Elfa baskets in my closet system. I took the liner out of the case and put it in the basket. Everything is in the same place as when I use the bag to travel.

An actual Pelican case is a good idea, I agree, and you can get them in any size you desire. They are literally bulletproof and great to travel with. Only problem is keeping them on the floor and having to bend to get stuff.

Just got a Pelican 1510 for use on the carrier. Bonus: It fits perfectly in the lockers we have for camera storage. Before this I just stored gear in bags or in a display cabinet.

Pelicans for me too! It's a great storage solution. The only thing you need to be aware of is it's wise to put an appropriately sized (and re-usable) desiccant inside the Pelican case unless you live and operate in an extremely dry environment with low humidity. Since Pelican cases are airtight, humidity trapped inside can pose a problem if stored that way for an extended period of time.

Well, let's see. I have my cameras/lenses/speedli​ghts wireless remotes, etc in two bags. One bag is my main bag and will haul everything if needed. The other is a smaller bag that I just take what I need.
They both sit on a shelf with all my other crap. Then I have several totes with backgrounds and other junk in them. And a couple large pelicans with studio strobes, umbrellas, etc. Then....

Well I thought it was organized but now that I really think about it, I'm probably just as much of a mess as you are. I have a whole 8x8 closet of nothing but my stuff. Probably not much help.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.

I use a book case in my office/spare room. Two shelves are dedicated to camera stuff, I have made a few nifty hooks the slide on the backside of the adjustable shelves so I can hang things like my step up rings and what not. I then have all my bags haning behind the office door. I used to keep things in a bag, but I like this set up better, I can see everything, and when its time to pack up and go out shooting I can easily grab what I need and put it in the right size bag for that outing.

Now light stands and all that studio stuff is hanging on the walls of my studio/shop.

I'm horribly disorganized. One of the few downsides of living in Maui. Costs a fortune to have space.

Living in SE Asia, I keep everything in a dry cabinet to avoid the possibility of mold.

Since I've been going mostly paperless, I have extra space in my filing cabinets. One of these Pelican divider sets fits perfectly in a letter sized drawer. Each lens has its own spot so I can get to them quickly. Another drawer holds all the random accessories.

I see these a lot when we hit ports such as Singapore, even some here in Tokyo. What's the advantage of this vs. a pelican with dessicant in it?

How do you know the dessicant is still good? The stuff doesn't last forever. You can put them in a very low often for an hour or even leave theave them out in the hot sun to help dry them out. The dry cabinet is a mechanical device not unlike a dehumidifier.
