I found a nice utensil caddy at Target for 1/2 price - I lay it down to store, stand it up when coloring. More than one caddy could house color families. See it here: Organization / Stampin' Write Marker Storage

I hot-glued a bunch of toilet paper tubes together to make a "wall" that fits perfectly in my shelf space. Each tube holds 6 markers, and I can add on as I need to. It works for now.

I found a storage solution and it was quick and easy to make. This will only work for Copics. I have some Spectrum Noir Markers and they are too fat for the squares in the lighting grid.Here is a link to the site I have saved on Pinterest.
Here is a picture.
I found the really useful box at Office Depot for 11 dollars. The suspended lighting grid at Lowes for around 10 dollars. I have enough grid to make another box. (It comes as one big panel) Cut the size for the box with a hacksaw and hot glued grid in the box. One on the bottom and one at the top.
Some people say their markers don't fit well but I found if you turn them slightly and put the marker in the box with the chisel end down, you will have no problem getting them in and out.

I saw this at my LSS for about $20, and I'm thinking it looks perfect. I need to be able to store mine away OR get them out when I need.

My husband made this for me recently and I just love it. It was inexpensive and feels sturdy. Mine is painted purple.

All,
I have the full set of SN and have tried several storage options. First I tried the layers of Snap-n-Store, but when coloring I had to lay out all three trays and it was hard to find the colors I wanted.

Then, I bought about 6 of the CC black zipper pouches. In at least three of them the zipper immediately broke, before I was putting markers in, right out of the package. While CC did replace them, 1 of the new ones broke. These are not going to stand up to use and since I can't see through them I have to open pouch after pouch to get what I'm looking for. I can put labels on the pouches, but there's value to being able to see all the colors.

Finally, I bought an ArtBin deep box with the dividers and for the moment, this seems like the best option. It fits all my markers with ample space left. I put all the markers on a single side of the case, divided it up and tried to group similar colors together and fill up each section. If you don't fill up the section, the marker slide all around and it's a mess. On the empty side I store my distress markers (too tall for regular storage), and the color charts from SN, TH, etc. If I were going to a crop, they'd be room for some ink pad or refill bottles.

If you have an AC Moore, the ArtBin box is on sale for $15; it's 50% off without a coupon or you can use a 50% coupon elsewhere.
Hope this helps,
Mob

I thought it had little clips to hold the dividers in so they didn't slide around? I want mine to be sturdy.

The dividers are pretty secure within the box, but if you don't fill up space within tightly, then the markers will fall over and slide down within their own space. One goes down and others follow.
