And you'll find some nice containers that you can use for sponge balls, an egg bag, etc. Clean one out, put some velcro on it and you can stick it right to the inside of your gig case. They have a screw top which I like to keep egg bag eggs from escaping and cracking.

Also look in your shower for shampoo bottles. I take an exacto knife, cut them up for the prop I want stored. They end up open on one end and (usually) closed on the other.

For a wand sleeve, I cut the top and bottom off of a rather large shampoo bottle and I velcro this to the inside of my case and it holds all the wands I use for my kids' show. After the show I un-velcro (or is it dis-velcro) and lay it down inside (with the wands still in the sleeve) the case ready for the next show.

You can also use medicine bottles to hold thumbtips and silks.

All of these items are velcro'd to the inside of my VAULTZ case. Either permanently or I attach them quickly as I set up for the show.

So you can recycle and get good use out of leftover containers. And it's basically free.

Good ideas, Frank. Thanks for the tip. I made the mistake of storing some sponge balls and tt together for a while and got colored tt from it. (not that it matters), still nice to keep all together dry and separate and that is a cheap way to do it.
