I know there are many posts on different storage solutions for Agricola, but I thought I would offer my solution to fit the following requirements:

1) Storage must accommodate Mayday meeples (animeeples, resourcemeeples, farmermeeples).
2) Everything must fit back in original game box, with box top closing FLUSH.
3) All boxes must be easily available on-line with links and dimensions posted to minimize confusion or trial and error.

Previously, I had been using the Plano 3620. It was nice because it had enough compartments to fit all meeples and player pieces in a single box. Unfortunately, the box top did not close flush, leaving about a 3cm gap, so I decided to look for other options.

Also, although I love the creativity of self-made storage solutions, I really wanted something that could be easily obtained with a minimum of fuss or hassle, for maximum reproducibility.

Here goes:

Pimped Meeples
Mayday Premium Wooden Box + Wooden Meeple Set
http://maydaygames.com/wooden-box-token-set-euro-farmer-anim...
Sadly, the animeeple pigs that came with my version of Agricola could not be used because they require more space than the Mayday pigs in the Plano box. So I am using the Mayday animeeples rather than the German animeeples. (I think I prefer them anyway because they take up less space on the game board, but that has been covered in another thread).
Also, the wooden box isn't used, but costs less than the set without the box so just get it and use for extra game piece storage.

Game Sleeves
Mayday Standard Euro 59x92mm (Blue)

Premium sleeves would be too thick to fit in my storage solution. That said, other than the cards used in the base Family Game, the other cards aren't handled that frequently so you could probably get away with not sleeving at all.

Resourcemeeple Storage
Plano 3500

I did have to request a few extra dividers which are provided free of charge by Plano through their website. (Comes with 4, I used 7).

This is the first post I found on BGG for Agricola Storage Solutions. I don't know if it's the best, because I haven't looked at any others, but you sold me. I bought all these things and now my box is packed away tightly like yours.

The small Plano box is perfect for the supply, as well. Thanks man!

Maybe one day, if I'm feeling motivated, I'll print out some containers for the decks, but for now, the plastic bags are perfect.

The only thing I changed is that I included all of the action cards for 3+ players in the "family game deck" bag, since I don't always play with occupations and minor improvements when playing with 3+ players, so I felt the action cards belonged that main bag.
