The part bin cabinets listed below are what I'd suggest. They
all have the same external dimensions, but with different drawer
configurations. Personally, I find the 24 large-drawer and the 64
small-drawer versions are most useful. I have the combo 44-drawer
version on my desk at work, but mostly use the larger drawers and wish
I got the 24-drawer version instead. These would be nice attached to
the wall (don't stick out too far). I like the idea of settling on
one particular form factor so they can be tiled across a wall in a
modular, space-efficient, non-chaotic manner... and these seem to
have a reasonable cost/benefit ratio IMO.
