    I know the feeling well. I inherited my grandfathers collection and junk drawer, and it’s still true.

    do not forget you have a ton of them but you got to the hardware store to buy some because none of the ones you have work

    Also, if you need three, you must buy a package of 10, adding to your collection. Of course, five of those seven will migrate to wherever socks go.

    I’d rate it higher, but in the top ten is satisfying.

    In the shop I worked in, this collection was called “the million dollar can” because every so often you found just the right screw, bolt, nut or whatsis you needed and that was worth a million dollars (or so it felt).

    I have a 1lb Maxwell coffee can from the late 1960s. The new “pound” is about 13 ozs, unless they’ve shrunk it further. I buy bulk coffee beans so all that is mute. Got that missing screws problem myself. Wait !  Did that come out right ?!

    The new coffee cans aren’t even metal anymore!

    I’ve inherited my dad’s and it is in an old METAL Sir Walter Raleigh Pipe Tobacco can. Of course, I also have a can of my own for the odds and ends I have, but mine is a cardboard can that had Sir Walter Raleigh in it.

    Sorting nuts, bolts and washers was my job as a kid at my Dad’s shop. I guess it kept me busy and he knew where I was.

    If he kept all his miscellaneous nuts, bolts, screws, etc. in separate little baby food jars like my husband does, he’d always know what he has and where it is.
