materials and freezing temperatures

It's that time of year again. Every year I end up losing numerous containers of caulk, filler, glues, etc when they are in the truck overnight or days on end in freezing temperatures. Thinking of throwing them all in an old cooler to insulate them from freezing. Thoughts on whether this would work?
Maybe I will put a bottle of water in there as a telltale....

I'd be concerned of any processed product like caulk or sealer that could be compromised and not function properly afterwords. Might not even need to freeze solid to change how it cures.

The problem is the you won't know it until the product doesn't cure and you're stuck with a sticky mess to clean up. I always hated this time of year when I was doing it.

I used to use a tub with a wheels and a handle to keep the freezables in. I didn't use them every day so if i wasn't using them, I would just leave them in the house.

if you toss them in a cooler or another box toss a hand warmer in there with it.

make an insulated box with and hook up a 20 watt light bulb in it. Better yet your not supposed to use caulking when it's below freezing because it won't cure.

nothing worse than frozen caulk!
