Have you ever been backed up with needy patients with repair jobs and when you went back to the lab you had a hard time finding a replacement part or screw. Perhaps a fellow optician or coworker placed it in a different spot. Think of all of the time you could have saved? It's a great idea to get on the same page and be organized.
I like things to be orderly and arranged. We purchased this small storage on amazon and use it for nosepads of various sizes, as well as screws and manufacturer parts.
Grab a label maker and go nuts!
