How to keep track of extra figure parts?

Well, I've got alot of extra figure parts just lying around, but I don't know what to do with them.

What I mean is,

Many weapons... which are a pain to keep track of.

Display bases... which I try to use.

and a vareity of mismatched parts,

there's enough extrta parts to fill a small bx or two,
Is there a decent solution to this?

Labeled pill bottle, drawers, boxes, and bins. Also, maybey just try giving the toys their weapons and accesories back. They won't rebel against you in your sleep or anything...

I had a bunch of Joe weapons and stuff I got at a flea market one time. I did the research to find out who's they were and used trading card sleeves and team bags to organize and label them. The team bags are nice because they are bigger than the individual sleeves and have a self adhering strip on them. walmart should carry them near the trading cards, or go to your local sports card dealer.

For larger parts try using comic sleeves with backerboards or just plain cardboard. Label them with a strip of tape or go pro and use a label maker.

If there is as much as you say, you have your work cut out for you.

Get a plastic container that's divided into sections like a tackle box. I've got one with removable dividers for all my Joe accessories. They might have something like that at a hobby store.

Tackle box is actually the best Idea so far for tiny parts.
