Economical Fastener Storage

For a long time I've had one big plastic bin with a mish-mash of screws and bolts. I've been on the lookout for an inexpensive way of being able to store these fasteners. I've found the the Ziploc food storage containers fit the bill perfectly.

I labeled both the cover and the container so that I can easily see what is in each one. I can now put screws of the same type in a separate container and when I need, for example 1-1/4" drywall screws and 2" gold screws, I can easily grab the 2 labeled bins for the project at hand. The containers fit well in the existing niches above the workbench.

Simple and economical; and if one bin gets messed up, it is very easy to replace with a new one.
