In a plastic storage bin originally marketed for pens/pencils/school
stuff.  It used to hold my dice until the dice got too big.  If I get
more pyramids, I'll have to find another solution.

If I still have them, my original origami icehouse set is packed in a
plastic 3x5 card box.

I either bought or won my origami set at a gaming con a decade ago.
For a short time LL shipped a clear plastic box with RGBY stackable
icehouse stashes in it, which is where I got my initial 4 colors.  The
rest were bought as  mono tubes.  I do not have all the colors I want,
in part because (a) I didn't have the money when they were available
as mono tubes, or (b) I could only get them as parts of sets which
would duplicate the colors I already have.

Not yet.  I used  a box for storage before the tubes came out, so I
just dumped my tubes into them.  Using tubes would have required
getting empty tubes.

I am considering changing to a tube-based storage.  It'll give me a
chance to lose whole stashes at a time.
