All those nails and screws


These are $10 at HD:


You can stack them, slide them in on rails, reconfigure them. I have five of them for wood screws, nails, nuts/bolts, anchors, other fasteners. The big boxes of nails go in a workbench drawer.

As noted one great advantage of these things is that you can grab them and go for projects around and outside the house.

All those nails and screws


Since I do finish carpentry and have to haul the screws and nails with me and I do cabinetmaking, etc in my shop, I have lots of tote boxes for tool, screw, nail, sandpaper, paint supplies, drywall tools, etc...all marked for easy finding. I use empty mixed nut cans, ice cream pails, and other containers I recycle as containers inside the tote boxes, all marked for different types of screws, nails, hardware, etc. This system really works because I can stack the tote boxes, grab the one I need and have all the sizes I need where ever I want to work. The same goes for the tool tote boxes. All the accessories for the particular tool are in the box so I don't have to run around looking for stuff. Organization and neatness make for a pleasant work experience.

I'm probably no help, but I swear the best thing that I have used is just a big plastic container with individual square slide out boxes.
