    Samesies. I just throw the full packs into a mason jar with a couple desiccant packs. Put the jar in a small cardboard box to keep light out, and store it in the crisper drawer in the fridge. I keep a separate jar for any freebies, and maintain an inventory list with the order I want to pop things of which I almost never stick to.

    cool cases though ;)

    Looks very much like my plastic rounds from Walmart sewing department! My stickers are smaller! Mine live in a dark desk drawer.

    I keep Greenpoint in their own containers that are labeled with laundry Sharpie.

    I heat seal most of mine in mylar (light blocking) bags and store them in the fridge. I keep out a 6 or 9 month supply in smaller packs. It seems I have an addiction and have way too many seeds.

    Some cool containers in here :) I've used everything from mini mason jars, empty pill bottles over time. But it was getting out of control, my mini fridge I store them in was full and has the typical jar/tin with a bunch of commercial strains (still have to sort out 2 of those tins). I'm keeping multiple generations now for breeding so though I'd better get some smaller containers and start organizing them.

    Found the one's in the pics below at the dollar store (craft section) and pretty happy with these. I get 8x of them for like $1.50. They seal very well, liquid won't leak through so I figure they're safe to store seeds in. Also using them for pollen now, sticking them inside a jar w/rice. They stack fairly well and hold up to ~600 seeds per container, I've filled a couple when open pollinating.

    Some people who do a little pollen chucking have found these dollar store items useful to store beans. Sticky labels with strain name / pertinent info. dates etc. on them and you're good to go.

    Don't forget to keep 'em in a freezer or if that's not possible a cool dry and dark place.

    Sure! There are two shelves on the door also filled with jars. On top the fridge is a book with of a list of the crosses in each jar which I mark and date when I grow it. When I need a pack of seeds from the fridge, I pull out the jar, and let it come to room temp before I open it. Each jar has a desiccant pack. Fridge is kept round 40 deg F.

    Guess I'll be odd ball out then keep all in original breeder packs that then go into zip lock bags that go into a lunch box in the fridge. All my zip lock bags are separated in to different breeders and some are combined ie Bodhi and strayfox go together ocean gtowen are in their own but all my single seeds are all together and a freebie bag where you guessed it all the freebies go. I also separate the freebies in to the ones I want to run and ones I never will.

    I don’t like the idea of storing seed in the fridge. The moisture in the fridge is scary. What if the powers goes out or something gets spilled. I store mine in a dark drawer in the closet.

    Now that's quite a collection. Lots of good breeders in that fridge, how do you determine what's on deck? Do you do multi runs or just keep running new gear?

    Bravo sir!

    Hardest part is deciding what to grow next!!
