Inspired by one of the PFS guys in my area, I punched out the pawns, glued a piece of card stock to the back of each sheet and when it dried I put the pawns back in their slots. This way I can just store them as sheets. Sadly this inspiration came too late for me to apply it to my beginner box, but when I get the Bestiary Box I will be doing this and just using the box as storage for my sheets.

Along those same ideas as above:
I keep the original cardboard page they come in, and I print out a pdf page of each pawn sheet. Then I slip both the pawns/cardboard page and the pdf page into 8.5x11 sheet protectors. Keeps the pawns from falling out of the clear sheet protectors, and once I remove a pawn, I can see the pdf sheet below to know where the pawns go back in place.
For now, I keep binders of all the sheets. (One for beginner box, one for bestiary, etc.)

Wished I would have seen this thread earlier, like the idea of using the orginal backing.
I went a differnt route. For each of the box set of pawns I use a 3" or 4" binder. (4" inch works better). Then use ultrapro card 9 pocket card holders. For multiple pawns with the same image, I put them in the .99 for 100 sleeves, the fold the excess and slide them in. I add a photo copy of the front, back and side of the box and add it to binder cover and spine. Works great for the small, medium and large minis. I just add the in the order I punch them out (which follows the numbering and contents from the back of the box).
The huge pawns I leave in the box, though the ultrapro 4 pocket may be the way to go as you can use it like the 9 displaying only 1 pawn or have the back side display another pawn for 8 on each sheet.
It makes it easy to find a pawn by the table of contents and enjoyable to just flip through.
For the basic box and the adventure path I do same but a smaller binder. And just cut the adventure path color cover and insert that into the binder sleeves.
Process works well for the WOTC tokens too.
I use a large mechanic style plastic toolbox and went the resealable plastic sandwich bag route. I sort by type of monster (ie monstrous humanoids giants ) etc As it is, I have a 2x Bestiary 1 boxes and one Bestiary 2 box merged into the toolbox with also the Rise of the Runelords pawns. Its now basically completely full.The Size is a bit of an issue, but it can be carried one handed
I put the whole sheet in a page protector then in a binder. Each set is in a binder. The 1/2" binder works for the Adventure Path Pawns and the 1-1/2" binder works for the box of pawns. I print a list of the pawns that are in numerical and alpha order and put it in a sheet protector in the front.
I use binders that have clear pockets on the outside to put a copy of the box picture. Since the Adventure Path pawns are enclosed in folder like cover I cut it up and use that for the cover, spine, and back of the binder.
Sometimes pawns won't stay in the slot so I use removable tape on the back. But I like the idea of pasting a sheet on the back or even a print out of the pdf so I can see the image of the pawn missing.
