Introduction: Resistor Organizer

Picture of Resistor Organizer

When you're first starting out in electronics, chances are you bought a resistor assorted set and you dont have any place to put it in.

Step 1:

So for my way of organizing my resistors is by using coin envelopes and a printed label on a sticker for easier identification.

As you can see, I've also added a marker so that I can easily find the #of the resistor.

It's grouped by the 1st number (i.e. 1, 10, 150... etc. )

Nice. I'm using plastig bags and a organizer box. All resistors are separated by last color, so if I need a 10k, I just search in orange group.

Coin Envelopes I love em.

Hmmm, I think organizing by first digit may work out easier than trying to do the regular increasing value. Thanks.

i actually grouped it based on the 1st number.

This is great! My resistor storage is using a tackle box with labels. It's works well for me.
