Not sure whether anyone else has suggested this, but Lidl this week have (again) got their DIY storage boxes for £4.99 which are perfect for MiniDV tapes. Each box will hold 18x4= 72 tapes, and there's space for labels, pens etc in the front. Great value - I'm on my 4th!

I've starting using tupperware to keep all the original tapes from each job together. Cheap and cheerful if you go to tescos or sainsburys. Keeps them nice, fresh and tasty too :)

Thanks very much for the information. I now have one of these and I agree it's pretty good.
