I bought this at Walmart about a year ago,..(Google Search "Stanley 018800R Mobile Work Center")and look at the Amazon site for best Pics of this case.The bottom portion will hold Stage size Hip Hop Rabbits,Large Magic Coloring Book,Jumping Signed Bill,Vapor Block,Vanishing Bandana,Multiplying Bottles,Nielsen Bottle and a Change Bag (just an example) or what ever you can fit in it with room to spare.The Top portion has a removable Tray that will hold all your small items ie:Wands,Balls,Canes and Candles and the like.And below that is space for Curtains/Silks,Ropes,Electrical/Audio Cords or what ever you wish.You can pick it up by the recessed Handle on the Top or Flip Up the other Handle (shown in Pics) to Pull it along.I liked it so well that I bought Two.If placed against a wall,they are stackable.With help from your local Print Shop,you can Jazz it up a bit.Light weight and durable,well worth looking at.

I used to use something similar, and for my smaller coins and such I used something similar to a screw organizer. They were both probably one of the best investments I've made thus far.

For small stuff like coins, etc, you can also get one of those clear plastic "tackle box" things from WalMart or some other similar store. They have customizable dividers, and only run a couple of bucks.

They are also good for keeping repair items all in one spot.

The metal tool "brief cases" are great and cheap at Harbor Freight. if you have one in your town, go visit and look at them.

I have a couple of these I use for bigger stuff, and they look good when I arrive at a clients site.

I also use a couple of these. I use these for close up stuff and stuff to fix stuff (paint, glue, tape, wire etc.(

Son of a dog, I also forgot. I modified one of these with a table base to make a walk on show. You need to thoroughly reinforce the "base" or bottom of the case to add in the pipe thread which I did using a thin piece of steel epoxied inside (hint, rip out the padding first).
