My game has just arrived so I spent the evening popping out the tiles and counters then counting and sorting all the cards. All the cards and counters are now in neat little poly bags but even though there is now less material given the counters/tiles frames are no longer needed, I can barely get everything back in the box.
Do you normally ditch the tray from the bottom of the box or is there a prefered way to pack it all up e.g. tiles, cards or counters in the tray first?

The cardboard insert that ships with the box is long gone for me. I have the board, cards in tuck boxes, and a full counter tray. Same for Tiger Leader. I then keep the terrain tiles from both games, along with the terrain tile expansion, in a third box.

I keep my cards in a 4x6 index card box. (See images)
From the original game box I throw away the shipping insert.
In the original box I know have all game pieces with the exception of the cards and terrain tiles.

EDIT:
As I don’t have Tiger Leader the TL upgrade is put away in its original box.

That's what I did also.

The cardboard insert is to keep the components safe, and look nice when the box is opened, but I agree with Wayne, once you have the game, get rid of the insert so you have more room for your components.

Thanks - it's gone!
This is my first game of this sort (beyond the disappointment of Airfix Battles, which was soon re-sold and the likes of Monopoly, Scrabble, Risk etc). I have to say I was very pleased with the opening-the-box-experience and the quality of the parts. The way those counters and tiles are cut such that they stay on the frame yet pop off easily with no tearing is a real engineering marvel!
