Default Where to store mikes, cables, connectors

I have a small setup that I frequently have to take down when the cleaning service comes. What kind of bags, boxes, etc., do you use to keep the smaller items safely contained and at least somewhat organized.? Thanks!

I like the soft zipper type tool bags for sundry items like cables power chords et.
Mic's I keep in the supplied hard wood, metal, or plastic cases except or for my 2 Shures which I keep in the pouches in a small tool bag

This...



Made by Access. I have the same bag, Taylor branded. My wife got it for me, and I thought it was over-priced at the time... I was SO wrong. Ten years later, this still looks like new. It holds two mics, a half dozen mic and guitar cables, a vocal harmonizer, a DI box, an extension cord, a Cooperstand fold up guitar stand, picks, batteries, extra strings, and a couple small tools for string changes. I am amazed at how much I can fit in there, and how well it holds up to traveling and the weight of the gear.

Access gear bag.

I have an 18" square ottoman with a lid that I put a lot of (but not all) my audio cables, power cords, etc. in.

Milk crate for cables. Coil them up, throw them in! Manufacturer pouches or cases for mics.

These work great! I have a couple of these Sterilite 3 Drawer Cart.
Under $12 ea at Walmart.

I store all sorts of cables, pedals, mics and adapters.

Just starting out, but using a small (20") duffel bag for cables; mics in supplied pouches and then stored is side pockets of bag.
Pockets of duffel also good for mic clips, connectors, adapters, etc. although I may get a small tool pouch for those just to keep it all together.
USB DI Box in a hard Sterilite container - in the bag when necessary.
