Search the forums for "storage solution" and you'll find many, many, many options.

More baggies, and a couple of partitioned/non-partitioned plastic plastic pill boxes should see you through.

You can also make tuckboxes, card dividers, foam inserts, cut the existing foam separators, buy cd sleeves, plano boxes, expensive storage solutions...

Really, how far you take it is up to you. But baggies and small dollar store boxes will suffice.

my method was to purchase CD sleeves. Then I put all of the monster card decks, monster stat cards, and standees into their own CD sleeve. I labeled and alphabetized the sleeves by monster name. That helped a lot. I then put the tokens and terrain bits into a plano box as organized as I could.

No baggies needed. Find plano box storage to store all the tokens. The map tiles hard to store, some of the guys here use map folders to store them based on shape or map numbers.

The cards and minis have their dedicated slots in the tray, as long as you keep the box in that lie down position.

This was one of the first things I said to my wife when I opened it, I don't think I have ever been as intimidated by a board game before!

I ended up just mainly using bags for all the tokens, but I ran out of bags so a lot of them are mixed up at the moment.

One thing I will say is check in the manual about the overlay tiles, they should really be sorted into doors/traps/corridors/rough terrain etc.

I went with Y.A.S.S's 3x Plano 3600 and 1x Plano 3601 box for around $23 after shipping. I was gonna go with a wood insert but this is much cheaper. Those wood inserts can be a pain to put together anyway. I'd rather spend that time painting a miniature.

The game will be more enjoyable the more organised you get it.

I just got the game and used the Broken Token wooden insert to organize everything. It all fits in the original box nicely. After playing the game a couple of times, this insert has saved us a lot of time with setup and takedown. Assembling the insert took about 3-4 hours and the $80 price is a bit steep but totally worth it, in my opinion.

I found some similar plano-type boxes at my local walmart (sporting goods section, fishing aisle). Some actual plano brand boxes, some that were knockoff brand. They had the same outer dimensions as the plano 3600s, so they fit inside the GH box the same way, but the divider configuration was a bit different (I think the permanent dividers in one went vertical while the permanent dividers in the other went horizontal). Thus the label/paper templates that people have made didn't match up exactly, but the boxes worked well enough for my tastes.

And they ran about $2.44-$2.88 each. I don't think they had the shallow/skinny box (3601) equivalent, though.

(I know walmart is an evil corporation in many regards, so perhaps my party reputation took a hit, but oh well. haha)

Last night I re-re-organized my copy. I decided I do not like the standees in the CD cases, even after a short time I was seeing a slight bend in the monster card.

I am still keeping the decks in with their respective cards, but the standees are remaining bagged.

With the great new app up, we're strongly considering retiring the Monster sleeves, element board and making them go the way of the monster decks.

The time, storage and table savings are silly.
