Tackle boxes for nozzles, milk crates for fittings.

I use the Stanley clear lid and gray Lexan parts boxes with the yellow rearrangeable interior boxes... they're something like $15 ea. @ Home Depot.

And they stack nicely inside my Stahl service body compartments.

I've got a couple Rainbird Noz boxes for nozzles. I bought some deeper containers that fit them from Cabela's.

For 1/2, 3/4 and 1" fittings, I use dividable grid storage containers for keeping things separated. They are pricey, but you can look in and find what you need quickly without fumbling through a sea of small fittings. It also makes seeing what you are running out of relatively easy. You can make the compartments as big or as small as you want. http://www.quantumstorage.com/dividable_grid_containers.htm I use the DG93080 and DG93120. You have to buy both short and long dividers and lids, so they can get up into a few dollars. Don't get anything smaller than the 8" deep ones. The 12" work better for 1" fittings.

On a small repair job, I just reach in and grab what I need. On installs or bigger repairs, I take the three containers out and set them near where I am working.

one idea I will share, for installs I took a 5 gallon bucket, built a divider to where there are 4 sections in the bucket. I keep slip 90's, slip T's, service 90's and service T's in this. the service 90's and service T's already have the threaded barbs in them also.

I use a 3500 cargo van with a plumber rack and shelving system. Has about 40 bins and shelves for fittings and tools and a ladder rack on top for pipe and ladders. Works great.

Ive got two 3500 vans with the same setup.
I also have a crewcab service body truck with individual side bin compartments for storing all necessary components.
