Organize your hardware!

I've had very poor organizational habits for all the small hardware in my garage and I've resolved to change that. I created visual labels for all the little plastic hardware drawers on my workbench, by categories that make sense to me.

http://joneilers.com/hardware_labels.pdf


I plan to print these on sticker paper and cut them out. The word descriptor would go on the small finger pull part of the drawer and the image would go on the bigger front part. Hoping these are useful to others, and also looking for some feedback. I know everyone has varying needs in this area, so I don't aim to fill every niche. These are intended for people like me, DIY and automotive gear heads.

Any categories that you would vote to add? I'm sure I could go down a rabbit hole with auto parts categories. Personally, I keep a separate plastic organizer for Jeep-specific parts.

I created this in Adobe Illustrator, so if anyone uses that and wants the native file, I can definitely share it.

On the drawer label I would distinguish threaded stuff with MM or SAE tags.

Good idea. Although for my purposes a single drawer could hold all my metric stuff. I just have very little of it.
