Easy Electronics Organization using Arduino

Like many other electronic enthusiasts I need to have a constant supply of materials in order for us to keep building, hacking, or just playing around with electronics. However as probably any of us have come to realize we need a lot of space and storage to hold every thing. Enter the world of stack-able containers. I got one from Ikea, a “Helmer.” its simple metal design fits in with my rooms decor and it had just the right amount of space. In this instructable I will show you how I actually organized my electronics “collection.”

Dont forget to visit the site!


Here I used some “Really Useful Boxes” (that’s actually their name) from staples and they let me tell you they are a life saver! You simply pack them full with stuff of the same kind, and then put them in the drawer, they are also easily stack-able! there is no limit to what you can put in them !(unless its too big of course!). Mine are all labled with what the name of the components that are in side, thus each component is very easy to locate.

The Arduino Drawer

Or what ever micro controller you use. I prefer Arduino for all my projects so that’s why I labeled the drawer “Arduino.” I even though the micro controller is technically a component I find it easier to have all of its stuff (cords, programming cable, shields, etc.) in one area for easy access. The decision is totally up to you.

Random Parts Bin

We all have one of these some place…mine is right under the Arduino bin. Basically anything you haven’t organized yet (circuit boards from consumer electronics, plastic bits, handy little things, etc) all go in here. There is not organizational code for me here, but if you want to still keep things fairly organized go ahead!

Ideas Bin

Here is where you can keep all your plans, schematics, drawings, or quick notes. I keep this bin simple by just leaving my “Projects Note Book” which contains everything I have ever built or imagined.

I Would suggest you keep it simple. Here is a list of suggested tools to keep in this drawer…

-Soldering Iron
-Soldering Paste Flux
-Extra Hands tool
-Bread board
-Jumper wires
-Multi-meter and or battery tester
-Assorted Small Screw Drivers or a few big ones
-Needle Nose Pliers
-Wire Strippers
-Super Glue[/box]
