I need places for 6-10 bins of props. Thinking of clear boxes.
What's your system?

Contico plastic Foot Lockers, sells for around $20. I have 17 full of my magic props. They also make one with wheels at one bottom end, so it can be pulled and pushed around.

Regular Foot Lockers work as well, but cost a little more.

For small to medium size props, I have several multi-drawer cabinets that I purchased from Walmart years ago. They are still available at Lowe's, Home Depot, the Container store, WalMart, Target and many other locations. For larger props, I purchase plastic storage bins, also available from the above sources.

I'll use both these ideas, thanks.
and a labeling system for each container or drawer.

I am a hobbyist. So aside from a few big things like juggling pins I keep everything in this case purchased at Home Depot. There is an Assassin’s Pouch here with 5-6 effects in it and another 30 items in the case. Then my head is full - I can only remember how to do 35 effects at a time so the ineffective and items cumbersome to relearn are given to others.

I have matching excel worksheet with a big grid with section like the case and data in it tells me what is located where.
