Many helpful options exist for organising small hardware items such as screws. (screws image by Eldin Muratovic from Fotolia.com)

Small hardware items such as nuts, bolts and screws have a tendency to get lost or get in the way if not organised properly. Numerous options are available, however, for organising small hardware items for each individual need, and at a variety of pricing options.

Fishing Tackle Box

Fishing enthusiasts require a supply of small materials such as flies, hooks and lures, and the same organizational tools fishermen use comprise ideal organisers for screws, nuts and bolts, and they come in a variety of sizes. For instance, for people with a need to organise small amounts of these hardware items, tackle boxes as small as 12 inches by nine inches fit the bill and take up little storage space. For those who have a large amount of small hardware items to sort and store, large tackle boxes contain adjustable dividers, allowing the user to design the space however he'd like.

Craft Storage Bins

Crafters frequently need storage remedies for small notions and supplies used in their arts. For instance, jewellery makers often need storage suitable for organising beads and spacers, and these storage bins are also ideal for organising nuts, bolts and screws. Craft storage cabinets include several small trays that work like drawers, and these cabinets come in a variety of sizes appropriate for use on top of a desk or work area. The drawers typically are made of clear plastic, allowing the user to easily see the contents without having to search through each drawer to find the desired object.

Household Items

Creative individuals may find satisfaction and financial savings by utilising household items for their small-hardware storage needs. Items such as empty egg cartons and muffin baking tins work well, as do ice cube trays, which have the advantage of being stackable. Spice racks also work well in organising screws and similar items. After washing and soaking to remove labels, the jars can be labelled with a black marker, or you can add new labels with a label maker. Having screw-on lids makes things even more convenient. For households with large amounts of screws, nuts and bolts to sort and store, clear plastic containers may prove a perfect option. These items are available at grocery stores and come in several sizes. Having snap-on lids prevents the contents from spilling and scattering should the container be accidentally tipped over.
