I also use a smaller action packer type box as a tool box. It has: basic tools, duct tape, flashlights, mallet, shovel, hose remnant, more duct tape, rope, clothespins, extra tent stakes, etc. I put a bunch of the smaller stuff inside an all-metal #10 can with a plastic lid, this doubles as another bucket when needed. All bins, boxes, and crates are labeled on the top and all 4 sides so I don't have to open them to figure out what's inside. Anything that is used up on a trip is replaced as soon as we get home so we aren't out of it next time.
