Default Systainers as job boxes

I've just started using a couple of Systainers as project-specific "job boxes" in which I accumulate all the bits and pieces--materials, receipts, and sometimes specialist tools--for a particular job. Their permanent labels are Job A and Job B (which makes me feel a bit like Dr. Seuss), and they are temporarily marked with the name of the task.

At the moment both job boxes are SYS-3s, what I had on hand, but I think I'd rather have 4s or even 5s. I'm using dry erase markers directly on the Systainers for the temporary markings.

The job boxes are kept in the truck. As I purchase materials (or think of something and pull it from stock), the items go into directly into their project's box. Receipts go into a small plastic envelope inside the box.

A current example is window screen making. I'm unlikely to dedicate a Systainer permanently to the tools for the job, but for now a job box containing a miter box, hacksaw, spline tool, and the screen hardware is handy to have.
Posterous should be along shortly. Preposterous is already here!
