My new junk and craft containers.
I saved these empty plastic containers. 
Taped and spray painted red and black.
Hello Numbers.
I had to heat a nail and puncture a hole in the plastic bucket.  The ring attachment is from my piles of old keys.

So here's the method to the madness... In my art studio I had some old containers to place my junk items in and wanted streamline labels not just a stick on.  TA-DAAAA!  The laminated numbers from my last post were not only interchangable but look really tidy.
