The best painted ones I keep in a jar full of gasoline. Great at preserving them.
Ok, don't do that. Gas actually strips paint and it may or may not melt your models.
Anyways, I have one of those big GW carrier things so I use that for my small and medium sized models, and just carry by large models in a random carboard box. I find that works.

you don't have problems with stuff snapping together/repulsing eachother when you play with them?
i carry mine in the standard gw case, mc's go in one of those soft coolerbags that you take to the beach etc. with some packing foam-sheets between layers.

For monstrous creatures I do this: link (My Carrying Case).
Except I've modified the big box a little by putting down some thin plastic on top of the washers.
For the gribblies I use small plastic boxes and just toss them in. No magnets on those.
@ajay29: They are rare earth magnets. In the above link I give some sizes and where to order them from.

They don't stick to each other. For the smaller models, I'm using a single
3/16" dia. x 1/16" thickness disc magnet from K&J Magnetics. Those are probably too big for magnetizing models, but if you go with a smaller size like 1/8 x 1/32 those should work for large things like arms.
I keep mine in a shoe box

I have about 12000 points of nids and keep them in sabol cases. I'm actually working on filing my fourth case. You can buy the segmented foam in different thicknesses from Foam By Mail and build your own trays very cheaply. Give it a try.
I'm about to start on a magnetic sheet system like a guy at my FLGS. Consists of a storage bin with brackets attached to the inside. pieces of removable hardboard with magnetic sheets applied to them make the shelves. 1/2" outer diameter steel washers are attached to the bases of the models.
Put all the models on the shelves according to unit and pull the shelves out for deployment. Shelves are the length and width of the bin so they dont slide loose during transit.
