Looking for set storage opinions

Looking for set storage opinions
Right now I'm using albums which are starting to take up a lot of room and I'm also having a problem with the bottom of the pages bending a bit from standing them up. I'm thinking about taking the cards out, penny sleeving each one, and putting them either into a 5000 ct monster box or into a 3 row shoe box. My thinking is that I can store multiple sets in 1 box which would help with my lack of room issue. I also thought about about using the set card boxes but most early sets are 600+ cards and if I penny sleeve each card they won't fit into 1 box even the 800 ct. Not penny sleeving each card is not an option for me. If anyone uses the monster box or 3 row shoe box could you please let me know how its working for you. I don't want to make a mistake, end up with bent corners, and ruin my sets. Any other ideas or opinions welcome. Thanks in advance.

RE: Looking for set storage opinions
While this doesn't answer the question about boxes, this thread has some tips on binders that you might find useful, especially the last pages 4 and 5. Someone mentioned binders that have a zipper to help hold everything together and triangle spacers to keep the pages safe. I was looking for something specific, someone mentioned a brand or something that I thought was in this thread but I didn't see it. The binders sit on a big rotating lazy susan type thing and has a notch for the binder edge to go into keeping the pages straight instead of sagging. I'll keep looking and update if I find it again. It looked like something marketed more for a Dr. office.

Upd: Search rotating binder carousel. Look for ones that have a bump in each slot to support the pages instead of the flat ones that allow sag.

RE: Looking for set storage opinions
I was storing all of my sets in big boxes but after thinking about it for a while I decided to go to binders for the simple fact that it's much easier to look at them. I actually penny sleeved and top loaded my whole 2012 Heritage master set and I'm starting to regret doing that lol.

I use binders and lay them down to keep from bending.
