Anybody got cheap off the shelf way to organize and store their 6” DA disc? I have seen some of the wood working guys build a wooden tower with shelves for each grit. Looking for an easier solution if someone has one.

I buy sanding discs, all sizes, by the box and keep them in the boxes, sitting in drawers or on shelves in a cupboard. Sometimes I cut off the box lids, but usually don't bother. I can see the grit size on the box and the discs are kept neat and tidy. Arrange the boxes in ascending order of grit size. Easy.

grab a disc and head out to stores that sell plastic kitchen storage containers. 6" disc might fit into a sammich box.

I installed some cheap kitchen cabinets and also made these
cabinets to fit. It doesn't take much to build a shallow box
and mount it to the wall.
