Greetings fine gamers,

I'm looking for ideas on where to get small containers to hold various bits in games. I'm looking for small containers that might hold a single type and color of item, like the houses in Kingdom Builder or the different denominations of currency in Isle of Skye. I'd like to be able to pull these plastic-I assume they'd be plastic-containers out of the Kingdom Builder box and hand each person their own box of houses. Any inexpensive suggestions?

If you have a Dollar Tree near you, you can get the ones in the Amazon link there for $1 a pack.

I like these from Home Depot.

They are a bit more expensive than the Dollar Tree containers, but they are very handy for keeping things organized, as long as the box isn't too small. For smaller boxes I use the Dollar Tree containers.

Rite Aid usually has very similar ones in their Dollar Value green cardboard box display section. Do you have Rite Aid?

Plano 3701 cases are my favorites. They have rounded bottoms so you can easily scoop out bits and tiles. And they have dividers so you can subdivide the compartments. I get them at Cabellas.

these are the containers that come in Scythe, if you've seen that.
$1.75 a piece if you buy 12 and when you open them, each half is a tray for the pieces during game play. so I usually put 2 different components in each (gold coins and silver coins/wood and oil)
