I have about half a dozen of the clear plastic shoe boxes from Target or 
wherever, and have all the nuts in one, washers in another and then more 
or less sort the SAE sized bolts/machine screws from 1/4 to 1/2 in their 
own tubs.  Everything metric goes into one tub. Anything  under 1/4 goes 
in little individual drawers.  Still keeping nails and drywall screws, 
sorted by size, in coffee cans.
