one of the things that frustrates me to no end is that we just throw all our fluids in a big bin and it makes a mess, things fall over, I can't find stuff  etc etc.

 

there must be a better way.  please share ideas.

My milk crates are a little more organized. I keep brake fluid, oil, wd40, etc. even have a spray paint crate. As long as it’s totally full, nothing tips over.

I use these.  Redline 1 gallon bottles fit standing up.  I probably have 50 of these totes storing various parts.

If you're crafty with wood at all, I've seen some really nice custom totes made out of sanded plywood that keep everything in its place without spilling via custom side pockets specific to each fluid type. Makes for a handy grab and run over the pit wall when SHTF and you're not digging through plastic tube for fluids you can't identify.
