So I'm not the only one that does this either! :O I tend to use the plastic 
storage boxes that you buy from the $2-shop that became all the rage a few 
years back...

Also my software projects are stored in 'virtual boxes' (aka directories) on 
my machine and backed-up in an SVN repository off-site at a mate's place and 
also mirrored on my machine at work and even occasionally burnt to CD/DVD...

Now ask me to find my car rego, bank BSB or home insurance details... :(
