Tackle box switch

The other day Rylan, Stephanie, Amanda, and I went to bass pro shops to get a few things. Mainly because Rylan wanted to pick up a new light spinning setup for crappie fishing in the winter. He wanted a high end rod because he noted that we hardly ever break rods, but reels tend to break every other year. He ended up getting a St. Croix light spinning rod for $100.

As I was driving up to bass pro I told Rylan that I was going to look at a few tackle boxes. I had looked at a nice Browning tackle box a few weeks earlier but I decided that I didn't want to spend $120 on a new one. However after a few more trips I grew tired of having to deal with switching boxes in and out of my old tackle box and digging around in cramped pockets for pliers and scales. When I bass fished I took out my sinker and hook boxes, and replaced them with my worm and swimbait boxes. After looking at the box in more detail I decided to purchase it.
New Browning tackle box.
I placed it beside my old tackle box to get an idea of how much space I had gained.
XPS and Browning Tackle Boxes
The Browning was slightly narrower but longer than the XPS tackle box. The Browning was almost twice as tall as the XPS.
I then took the boxes out of each of the tackle boxes. The Browning had 8 large boxes and the XPS had 6 small boxes and 4 large boxes. I felt that the smaller boxes were more space efficient, therefore I may actually lose space by making the switch. I also noticed that although the Browning had 8 boxes, it was a very tight fit. So I put one box to the side so I could put more things in the pockets and maybe throw a few things on top of the boxes.
Three hours later I had completed the switch and I had my boxes neatly organized and labeled. I even managed to get all of my bass baits, hooks, and sinkers in the same tackle box.
When I got things all together I put a few Stop Rust strips in each tackle box to reduce the amount of moisture trapped in my boxes, and save me hundreds of dollars in lures.
