I have a HTPC-ish question...

I'm started my spring cleaning and I found a bunch of old parts from previous builds. Does anyone have a good solution for storage of miscellaneous parts and cables? I don't want to throw away perfectly good stuff (old PSUs, power connectors, usb cables, SATA cables, etc) away since I could use it in my next build, upgrade, or repair and I want a good way to keep this stuff out of the way.

Sorry, if this post is sort-of out of place, but I figure there were a few HTPC builders have solved this problem.

Home Depot, Walmart, etc.. are great for small "shoebox" sized plastic storage bins with lids.

I just use a couple regular boxes other things were shipped in. I would go get some twist ties and/or sandwich bags or something for the wires however, especially for the longer ones. A box of wires and cables can quickly become a big tangled rats nest if you just throw them in there.

I keep my junk under the bed.
Mostly Audio cables, but quite a bit of computer junk.

Old shipping boxes. Most of my spare cables are in an old Shuttle xPC box in a closet.
