Storage bin is the term used by Lamport.  It connotes that the material is kept there for later use better than variable, I believe.

Happy Holidays!

We may not all be in the same boat, but we are all together in the same storm.

Hello Jim,

In node \sbox & \savebox you used the term « storage bin », why not
just « variable », this sounds to me both more clear and usual.
