It only took me 30 years to find a storage solution for my NES cartridges

As the NES lost favor to it's successor, the SNES, the individual NES storage cases were very inexpensive. For about $20 I outfitted my entire NES collection with the protective cases used in rental stores like BlockBuster. I was pretty stoked to do this so cheaply.

However, the carts still needed to be stored in a box. Over time that box needed to be replaced - several times. I was never able to find a good plastic tub to store them in. The odd size of the NES carts - inside their individual cases - were always too tall for most of the storage solutions I found. Yeah, I was pretty picky about it.

Finally I found a low-height tub that holds a lot of carts in a single row, and isn't too heavy to lug around. It only took me 30 years - success! :)

NES storage tubs I'm sure there are plenty of plastic tubs that would have sufficed, but I really wanted one that held a singe row of games without a lot of wasted space and wouldn't be too heavy.
