What you use is going to be related to how many glasses you have, and what you are willing to spend.
The ultimate storage containers are tackle boxes. Each glass gets its own compartment, and the outsides are quite strong. You can also wrap the glasses to provide more protection. I have dozens of boxes, but finding the same model after a few years is impossible. They are also not inexpensive.
I mainly use old coca-cola crates. They were free (came with soda in them) and are strong. They are about 4 inches tall, and hold about 50 glasses each, and stack nicely.
Milk crates are also good, as they are quite sturdy, and hold many more glasses. They also stack nicely.
Using cheap plastic totes is not recommended, especially the ones that are clear or slightly milky, as they become brittle with age.
Rubbermaid totes that are solid colors seem to age well.
If you have some woodworking skills, you can also make your own crates, any size you want.
: I have not been able to find a good way to store my shot glasses that aren't displayed. Over the years, I've lost a few to breakage during storage. Any ideas?
