I am just bad storing my magic stuff, I have about half of my magic books and magazines in a toilet so I can read them when I'm doing my business and all the props are scattered all over my house. I thing I have like 3-4 bags with some props and 2 different shelf's were I keep 'em too. Only place where I can be organized is my unopened deck shelf.

Sometimes it's a bummer to thing where are my linking rings/rubber chicken/chop cup/you name it, but I somehow has managed to find all my props that I need with a little effort. My most often props are always somewhere where I can see them all the time. I have planned to get a bigger apartment (I now live in very small apartment, like 33 square feet) where I can just have one room for just my magic stuff.

Mary,

"Cold and spidery", that is THE best description of a garage I have ever seen.

Plastic containers. You can see what in it without having to pull it out and look inside it.

I have an attache case for my coins, my P&L tables are under my bed and everything else is in bookcases that line one wall of the dining room.


I see that Dale likes Delrin! I have a set of the RNT Black Beauties and they are fantastic for portable on the fly cups and balls.

We have an unfinished basement in our 100yo house that a contractor once looked at and said, "This looks like a one of those basements where people hide bodies."

I was at Hobby Lobby picking up some craft type stuff to fix and prepare some props, and in their furniture section, they have fantastic trunks, cases, boxes and even lightweight tables (which could be used as side tables), for anywhere from $20 to $100 each. The looks range from antiques to flashy. Just a thought.

Thank you for the tip. I have been considering more of a light trunk than a suitcase to travel with. There's a Hobby Lobby pretty close to my workplace as well.

Right now most of my regular use gear is in an inexpensive Sterilite Officeware / portable hanging file container. I can also tuck some cups, rings and other goodies in with room to spare.

I also have a second one for storing and - literally - filing silks in.

Ha, Andrew, and I've been looking for some Serilite containers, or some other plastic file drawers, because they seem to be popular and work well for storage by folks here on the forum. The hanging files would save space.

I like the ideas of "filing" your silks! You could label by size, color, type, etc! This would make pulling them out for use quick and easy!

I know some others that store their silks in envelopes.
