I am still using the original box that my start set came it. It goes with me to work and is already getting a little worn. I plan on expanding my game in the near future and wondering if you guys have any creative solutions for storing all your cards, rule books, etc.
I'm still using a shoe box. All Black and White cards banded in ways that make sense to me (singles wrestlers I use, tag teams I use, single wrestlers I use occasionally, wrestlers I won't use) and stored in a bag. The color cards are sorted the same way. Keep my dice and poker chips in a separate bag, and all of my charts, booklets and print outs underneath everything. All fits fine for me still.
I do something similar to Tornado. I use a box I got from my job about the size of a shoe box and sort all of my feds with rubber bands and have a cup for the dice and put the booklets and charts in the opposite side of the box. It works out pretty good for me.

I use a shoebox but with all the LOW sets and most indy sets it is quickly becoming too small. I have really started to do Online more and more, though, so it hasn't been filling up as quickly as it used to.

I think they may have change the name of their company, but I buy photo protectors from 20th Century Plastics (1-800-767-0777, order stock #PPV 450-000). I forget how much I paid for them, but you get 25 sheets per pack. Each sheet can hold up to 8 cards. Hope that helps.
I have all my cards separated into hero's & villains then placed into plastic envelopes (I think they are called coupon envelopes).This is done for my GWF , LWF , GWFZ , LOTF & my Fed Super Nova Wrestling .My bingo chips and dice are in a small craft box used for beads & the entire works are in a 25 quart file storage box .
One shoebox sized Sterilite plastic container currently houses all of the color indy sets, handbooks, charts etc. with room to spare. A second houses every Legends B & W set with all the accompaniments, also with room to spare. I also suggest continental sized postcard sleeves for protecting your collection.
I also use a Sterilite caddy that my wife bought to store the cards that I regularly use & I highly recommend them. It's only about 7-8 inches tall, & it's like Filsinger cards were made for them, or vice versa:
I keep all of my other cards in a small wicker basket, also bought by my wife.
