I have sandpaper stacked and laying everywhere. No organization what-so-ever, not that I'm known for being organized. For those that have their act together better than I do, would you post pics of how you store your sheets and discs?

I don't have pics, but been thinking of a strip of wood with dowels that come out in 3 paces to hold ROS paper. So all grits would be side by side. To put a sheet of paper on the sander, you just push it onto the dowels and it sticks. 

This is the best idea I've seen so far (not mine)

Ken, here is my solution.  I use a 1/4" plywood spacer with 120,180,220 written on it.  I have about 400 pieces in there.

I'm loving that table top (I assume) in the background. What species of wood have you got in there? Any Project Showcase post that I may have missed perhaps?

For some strange reason, this is my solution as well.  For larger sheets, I have them in an empty systainer.

One of the large boxes has sleeves of sheets along with sponges and hand blocks, and one of the small boxes has disks.  There is a dedicated small box for the Sand-O-Flex drill and all the inserts that go in the head.   They keep really well over years in the airtight, and watertight boxes.

edited to add:  I knew I was forgetting something.  Sanding belts are in the boxes with the belt sanders.  Each one gets its own box.

How does one dislike a post...? [emoji14] I kid, I kid.

Did you expect something different from me? Surprisingly, all my full sheets of sandpaper are just in a drawer -no systainer !

I use this for 1/4 sheet pieces but the full sheets i just have in a cabinet stacked in their original package. When i run low on 1/4 sheets i just tear a bunch more. When i get a disc sander I'll do the same for the discs.

Not quite a tabletop.  This was a quick glue up of scraps destined for the trash. It ended up as a big wall hanging clock. From what I can see,  it's got w oak, walnut,  h/s maple,  cherry,  ppl heart,  padeuk, ash and canary wood.

That has to be very difficult mentally!
