how many ways are there to skin a cat?

Like the title says I am open to ideas with storage logistics. Currently I have everything fitting but wondering if the genius of PCF would have a better idea. I am able to fit all the horse shoe Indiana chips/plaques in one of the red containers so that container should likely stay that way. Below are the specifics for each chip container and the chips involved (along with pictures) and counts. What would you put in each container? what would you store away? I was thinking of putting my new sloth chips just in the birdcage and red box but maybe a better allocation would be good and fun project.....

So for chip containers
2 - red tool boxes- max capacity is 2600 chips (1800 below and 800 in racks stacked on the top) ------currently 1 empty, 1 with HSI
1- acrylics bird cage 1000 capacity (1200 max overcapacity with extra rack) -------------------------------------currently empty
1- 500 chip aluminum case (can fit an extra 5 chips per row for 55 total)------------------------------------------currently 500 chip horse shoe Cincinnati 36mm
1- 650 chip aluminum case (can fit 800 chips) --------------------------------------------------------------------currently 800 protege
1- 1000 chip aluminum case (can fit 1100 chips) ------------------------------------------------------------------ currently 1100 nexgens
1- Black box with budjones racks can hold 2000 chips-------------------------------------------------------------currently Crazy Horse Milano's
(not picture) ~20ish Chip Boxes from the HSI's---------------------------------------------------------------------currently home for 10k HSI's and spares

Chips ----- HSI --HSC-NCV ---Sloth Club ------Crazy Horse -------------- Protege -------------- Nexgen Bee ------------------- CPC Sloth Club (in production)

Total ----- 2200 --- 500 --------3573 ----------- 2075 ------------------ 800---------------------1100 ---- total -----10643 (with another 2050 CPC pending)

So where do they all fit? or keeping cost efficient with adjustments please can you fit these poker sets into these cases in the most efficient way possible? What breakdowns and allocations would you use to each case....what would you store away in the cardboard boxes etc....

No offense... store away the Milanos and Lucky Bees... and whatever those are at the top left... then re-evaluate.

I’ve never been a big fan of long-term storage where black foam is in contact with the chips.
Some foams may be fine, but depending on the chemicals used and the manufacturer, some foams can break down or cause damage to things they contact.

This is very true with firearms....you certainly would not want to store your rifle or shotgun in a foam padded transport case long term... As for poker chips I have had the nexgens in the 1000 chip case for about 10+ years without any issue. The little plastic discs are pretty tough.

I was thinking of labelling the Bee's down the road to have a set of Roulette Chips, The Crazy Horse Milano's are a nice set that is listed in the classifieds. The slugged plastic set to the top left is a mobile cheap set that currently works as math counters for my daughter so assist her with counting. She has autism so the chips work great for her, also they work great replacing money in board games.
