So if you have (3) 1/4" straight bit that counts as 3 bits.... if you have set of bearings that change the profile of the bit 7 different ways it is still one bit for this count.

No prizes for the most or least but if you would like to tell us how you store them that would be great.
I counted 51 router bits. Years ago, I built a small chest to keep them in from leftover scraps of walnut and cherry . It has a removable tray that rests in the top of the box while I access the second level of bits in the bottom. It has worked out very well, but I'm outgrowing it and may move the bits to a drawer under my workbench. Photos Attached.

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain
