    Basically, I keep my things in a couple cardboard boxes. I want them to be more organized so I've been looking for a large plastic container with dividers. Haven't been able to find anything decent so I'll probably end of making my own dividers with say 1/4" wood.

    I don't go mobile often, but when I do, I select what I want and put them in pastic tubs. For my main storage, I have about 40 linear feet (1 foot deep) of shelving in the garage, and storage inside for more. My towels are stored in three 25 gallon rubbermaid tubs and some cheapies in another big bag I have. I brushes and mitts in another tub and even more in a rolling cart (for doing wheels) and another slide out palstic container. I still need more room :(

    I found a Black & Decker toolbox at WalMart for $10. It had little containers on top that I dremeled out to hold the detailing brushes & extra pads.

    Inside it's not too tall so most bottles I have to lay down. But I can fit a lot inside it:

    Meguiar's:
    Step-1 Paint Cleaner
    Step-2 Polish
    Gold Class wash
    NXT Tire dressing
    Gold Class paste wax
    Quick Detailer
    Int. Quick Detailer
    HotWheels tire cleaner
    Claybar tub

    Then:
    Eagle-1 metal polish tin
    nylon/brass/ss wire brushes
    rags in a bag
    Armor All glass cleaner
    The Absorber

    All that in a 18"w x 10"h x 8"d box.

    I bought some plastic containers from the Container Store. The stuff I store at home, I keep on shelves in my laundry room.

    I found a bottle caddy that fits around a 5 gallon bucket. It holds 6 bottles and then I put all my smaller bottles (glass cleaner, spray detailer, etc.) in the bucket. My towells go in a plastic storage container. My waxes/polishes and PC go into a Meguiar's duffel bag.

    For my bulk products.....homemade built outta pressure treated lumber. Get the bulk head tap for your gallon containers and lay them sideway. So easy to fill up your bottles!!!
