You survived the tedium. Hopefully I will, too. Such a PITA. >_>

Yeppers. Go Big or Go Home. Tired of the frustration and anxiety being disorganized causes me. Driving two miles to Lowe’s or Wal-Mart for a couple of dollars worth of screws has to stop.

Wow indeed. I need a better way to store and organize my ‘collection’ too. What brand containers are you using?

Hyper Tough Interlocking Organizer 2-Pack, at our local Wal-Mart store. You can get the brand, I believe, on-line, though not sure if this is a Chinese brand of theirs or available elsewhere. I seem to remember seeing the brand on eBay. Around $9-$10 for a set of two. Here are some images taken from the website:

Good luck finding them! They seem to be popular in my area, because they don’t last long on the shelves. Let me know how they work out for you.

Yes, they must be popular here too. Wal-Mart online shows a 2-pack at one store in the area, so I’ll keep checking next week.

You should be able to order on the Wal-Mart website and have it shipped to your home, or to the store closest to you for pickup. My experience with our local store is that the manager will only keep in stock what he/she thinks is a money maker, regardless of what actually moves on the shelves. I know that the main reason for this is the inevitable gradual downsizing we’ve been experiencing over the years. At any rate, most of the time Wal-Mart’s pricing is on par with Amazon’s, or notably less. Shorter shipping times than Amazon right now, too. When you do get some in, post your feedback and tag me in. Thanks.
