Ok, so I'm thinking of making a storage system to hold all my magic stuff. I am looking for ideas, possibilities, things to account for, suggestions, tips etc. I will kick-start the juices with a few questions:

Should I have one magic case that folds into a table and holds ALL my stuff?
Should I have a few different boxes for different things. Eg one for cards, one for stage equipment etc.
What is a cool way of holding coins? Maybe just a pouch? Does anyone know a good place to buy one?
Should I have a few different compartments for this pouch/purse? (eg. One for copper/silver, half dollar, penny, one for folding coins etc.
What is a good way of keeping 'supplies'? I have things like roughing fluid, elastic bands for bitten key and things like that. I would like some sort of sorting system for these but it is difficult to sort 'random items' like elastic bands. I would prefer not to just keep them all in the one bag if that is a possibility.
And lastly, what kind of compartments should I make? I have ideas for things that will hold: sponge items, cards, wands, silks, TT area etc. Anything I've left out?

I would appreciate the help guys.

I got this during the Choose 5 for $99 deal and ended up really liking it. A very entertaining and informative DVD. He has a lot of good advice on prop storage/management.

I use to use a small Jansport backpack to store my magic props for "on-the-go" situations. It eventually grew too small and now I use a Swiss carry-on baggage with wheels. I also use a plastic organizer that goes inside the bag. I am planning on putting possibly cardboard dividers inside it to help keep things in order. May seem a bit "low-brow", but the audience should never see inside it anyways.

Now if I can just figure out a good, quick, and stable performance table to go with it. :-/
