That is a very nice and neat. I like how organized you have your paracord tools.

There is another thread in this same forum called "Post Your Setup," where several of us have pics posted.

I never thought of using the bottles as cord dispensers. Smart.

I also keep all my hardware in a stow-away tackle box.

Nice setup.

Mr.Paracord can you send me pictures of your setup please
In all honesty I don't really have a setup of sorts. All my paracord is bundled up after I measure it for inventory purposes and then each bundle is stored in the three cardboard boxes that my AT&T U-Verse equipment came in.

My tools are kept in a plastic pencil case like you have pictured.

Since I was selling various bracelets, keychains, etc my focus was on inventory control down to the half inch then storing it a certain way.

I keep my inventory list on my S5 and I count everything I sell/use is counted. I know how many buckles I have by color, size, and style as well as my keyrings.

Thanks I'll check it out and your welcome the bottle dispensers work awesome..... I use 2 litter bottles for 25 to 100 feet of paracord and after it gets below 5 feet I take it out and restock it.. it's fairly easy to make it to...

1. Get pop bottles and a box
2. Clean bottles and peal the sticker of
3. Make hole in cap so paranoid can go threw (for this I just use screw drivers to push threw the caps till the hole gets big enough then I clean it up with my pocket knife)
4. Feed your paracord inside the bottle

There's also a video on YouTube for it that I just found but I didn't need it because it just came to mind... I hope this help!!!!!!!!!

The first time doing inventory takes a while but if you update your inventory as soon as you use some or resupply then it's quick and easy.

I use the free app called Color Note and I list my paracord colors first and then the total length of each color.

Next list all of your buckles according to size, style, and color and put the count next to each one.

Then list all your keyrings, beads, clasps, etc and put the count for each one.

That's it. Like I said once you add or remove anything update immediately and then you won't have to go through this long setup process.

You got the idea.

For the buckles sort them by size, style, and color.
Example:

1/2 inch black buckle 10
1/2 inch white buckle 14
1 inch black whistle buckle 16
1 inch black/orange whistle buckle 18
