No don't throw the lids away, save them to serve the wine on Friday.  :)

In the past, I've used the cheap plastic shoe boxes available at almost any
dollar store.  They're a nice standard size, (throw the lids away).  In one
lab where I was mgr, the special stains supervisor took the idea a step
further, and had a box for each stain offered.  It had all the room temp
reagents,  PLUS an index card with a shortened "quick" procedure, including
a list of the frozen or refrigerated reagents needed, PLUS the control
slides for that stain.  She is now long retired, but she had some awsome
Is it Friday yet?

Someone out there has a clever idea and I'd like to tap that ingenuity.
I have an overhead cabinet where I keep my special stains that don't require
refrigeration. I'd like to keep each stain set together on the shelf - like
in some kind of box.  What do you use? One thing that comes to mind is
sturdy plastic boxes that Lenscrafters, etc., use - roughly 9x6x3" (I've
offered to take any extras but they are very fond of them and won't give 'em
up!).  Anyway, what do you use that keeps all the bottles together on the
shelf?  I'd love to have your input and I'll put you in my memoirs.
