Thanks to justjed for discovering this deal. FYI, these "really useful boxes" are organizers that are really useful for keeping parts and projects or using as project enclosures. This deal should run for this week in USA (not sure if there are office depots outside US). Grab some while they still have them. I bought $60 worth boxes and my desk is clean for the first time and I can find everything cause I bought the clear boxes!

Don't forget your favorite walmart fishing tackle boxes/lure boxes and in the craft section for organizing boxes. You can adjust the size of each slot with the provided dividers (or don't use them at all).

Thanks. I might go get one for small parts. Those really useful boxes are for storing larger parts and projects that don't fit in small or thin drawers.

I use ones from Home Depot, they sell them in four packs, have handles, and they lock together and stack.  The ones I found are black sided, with clear tops.  Pretty durable and cheap on sale, and they hold a LOT of parts.  Adjustable dividers as well as non-movable bins, best suited to discrete components.  Mine are close to this, but this might be a newer model or another brand.  I think I paid $29 for a four pack.  probably two years ago now, but the totes are pretty much this one, which sell for $9.99 usually I guess.

When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

I found that one of the smallest ones is actually perfectly sized for an ordinary Arduino (Uno) - not sure if they have one as well-sized for the Mega...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
