How do you keep your BPO collection organised?

I've been getting more and more into the indy side of the game this year and along the way I've grown a decent sized BPO collection, around 500 at this point, and getting the whole thing organised is becoming a pain.

I'm looking for a tool that has these things:
- Track what BPOs I own, how many, preferably letting me input their ME and PE levels, preferably showing me those optimal levels
- Plan and track what I want to purchase next, preferably pulling the NPC market prices
- Track the time the BPOs spent in the lab for their ME/PE levels, find out the time it will require to get to further levels

I found a bunch of great tools to help plan production from BPOs, but not so much to manage the actual things.

Is there something like this out there?

I keep them in a can and then never open that can.

works for me.

Never forget.

I have a few corp divisions dedicated to BPOs by purpose (copying, research and resell, manu, etc.), and in the larger divisions I have cans for BPO type (ship, module, etc.). Those are for storage/not in use prints. If they're in use, I drag them out to the division so I can hit them from the lab window.

I would kill for a station container with tabs.

I don't fuss over their stats much because they're either unresearched, and I know it, or they're adequately researched, and I know it (e.g., anything that lives in the manufacturing tab has enough ME/PE that I would be comfortable never researching them again.

I have 2 corp divisions:
* Blueprints I've entered on my spreadsheet.
* Blueprints I've NOT entered on my spreadsheet (newer BPO, and ones I can't be bothered to enter).

I also have multiple containers for BPC. There are a LOT of these.

I'll dump the BPC into a third division if I'm doing a big T2 job, but otherwise I just use the first division for BPC too.
