Excellent tips. I too have an interest or need for better storage/containment of bits while working on projects. Thank you for the idea and where I can locate the containers

I have both and use a label maker to make labels to get an idea of what is in them… and it makes the one you are looking for "easier" to find when you have numerous ones and they are labelled.

Especially if you do 3D printing. Then you end up with large numbers of small parts. I save all manner of small plastic jars and containers, But I may have to go look for these as that is a good price.

Yes, these are very useful. I used them to ship painted castings in for many years. The shipping cup were also good paint cups or holding flock.

Ok, I will admit I have never gone into my local dollar tree. However this posting caused me ot do so, and I did pick up some of these small containers, as well as some 1.25 larger plastic boxes (one fits 12 of the small containers), and a handy plastic carry all. There is a goodly amount of really cheap and useful items there. I admit to buying a lot of cheap crap for modeling from temu though.
