What’s the best storage?

I’m currently using the mesh zipper pouches from Amazon. Click here for the link. This allows me to separate the pieces into smaller groups for students to share. I can also spray with disinfectant and shake. We store all the baggies in a small recycling bin storage box from IKEA.
