Never throw router bits carelessly and loosely into a drawer with other tools. This could nick the edges of the bits, ruining them, or necessitating costly, professional sharpening.

Never store router bits in a damp location, as this will causing rusting and dulling of the bits. It's best to store them in an enclosed area with camphor tablets or silica-filled canisters to coat them with a thin, rust-inhibiting film...or absorb the moisture before it reaches the bit.

Plastic ammunition boxes make excellent router bit storage containers, as do wood or foam blocks with drilled holes for the bit shanks.
