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.

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.
