Here's a cheap and very efficient storage solution for the retail version of the core game. This solution will store all future hero packs as well as all cards for future expansions(with only the shuffled decks sleeved).

Boxes are jewelry gift boxes
Planos are 6 x 3448
Tiles are stored in a 9"x9" cut-off gift box
The blue container is a 5 x 8 picture box

What are the dimensions of the jewelry gift boxes? Are they 4"x4"x1" or 4"x4"x2"?

Are these the plano boxes?

What's in the picture box? How deep is it?

Finally, what do you use to "save" the heroes between sessions?

White boxes are 4"x4"x2".

Yes, that link is the right model. You will need to shave off the front matches. It's a very soft plastic. Very easy task.

In the picture box (8"×5.75"×1.25"), I store the player mats, soul gems and enemy scrolls.

Cards are stored with dividers. I "save my characters this way but I do also use a note app to mark character lvl in case tge dials turn during storage. I haven't used the S&S app yet.

Update: I pre-ordered the 4 extra characters and ghost forms, so I now store the 3D doors and chests loose. This gives me an extra box for the upcoming minis.

Very cool - thank you for sharing! Does the box close well enough when it's all stacked?

EDIT: And where can I find one of those picture boxes???

No prob!

Yes, the box closes flush

I bought the jewelery gift boxes and picture box at a canadian store called Solutions. I guess a store like Michaels or any typical arts & crafts store would have both those items.

I like those 3x3 boxes! Would they fit orc shaman or orc warriors?

Definitely fit the warriors, need to check shaman. Did not fit orc king/troll combo very well. Plan to move a box of cards into 4x4 box when I get ACT II if needed and put warriors into 3x3.
