So i made a bulk purchase from Klingspor on behalf of a lot of positive reviews.

10lbs of rolls, 50 sheets of 600 grit, 50 disc and 30 belts. Not bad for less than $100.

Anyways, I was curious to see how some figure a way to store large amounts and keep track of them?

For those rolls, why not make a rack with PVC pipe going horizontally. Then you can store the rolls on the pvc pipe, and just unroll it as you need it. For the sheets/discs, one of those accordion folders with lots of pockets works well and stores small.

Also, festive tablecloth.

I bought a rolling shelf unit from craigslist. It is ugly, but it’s one stop shopping.

For the sheets and discs, similar to jmart’s suggestion, one of the guys in our guild uses a portable file box for all his sandpaper. Something like this, though his is metal

Has a file for each size/grit combination to keep them organized, takes up very little space and can easily be moved anywhere in the shop that it is needed. Plus, it keeps most of the sawdust out. I thought it was a great idea and solution to a common problem.
