Show me your seed storage....!

How do you store your seeds? I’ve been looking for the perfect use for this old jewellery box of my grandmothers. She taught me about gardening and I fondly remember digging runner bean trenches with her every year. 

Anyone else use something sentimental or unusual?

    Tin box from Ikea and a shoebox on top of the wardrobe. Seems to work for me😊
    There's a lot of unidentifiable loose seeds and empty packets, though.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    For sentimental reasons I don't think you could do better, but I'd suggest you always keep left over seeds in their inner foil packaging AND their supplier's packets so that they never become anonymous.  Damp is the curse of seed storage so saved bean and pea seeds can be kept on trays on the floor of your airing cupboard (hot press over here).
