Now personally, I prefer using daypacks and small suitcases to having everything in a single BOB because it allows me to keep 1 or 2 in each of my vehicles and to adjust what I carry by the season.  When I travel any distance, however, I also pack a GHB (get home bag) which is a backpack similar to above with room to strap on a tent and sleeping bag (I always bring those along also on longer trips).
I tend to scour thrift stores and yard sales for small zippered cases - these I use for organizing first aid supplies, firestarting, tools, toiletries, food and more. Makeup bags, grooming kits,  camera cases, lens cases, small clutch purses, insulated lunchbags, and even tournament darts cases can be repurposed into a survival supply kit.  
If you use smaller cases to organize and store your supplies, it also makes it easier to find what you’re looking for without dumping out your entire BOB.  Organize stuff by theme (for example, first aid/meds, cooking supplies, tools, hygiene, food) and then label the cases so that your companions may also be able to find what they need (especially a good idea if you are injured and need medical attention). Sharpies come in silver now, making it easy to label even black cases quickly.Happy packing!
