Bins - many places, but I'm using the many year old tradition of coffee cans - and yep, you can still get it in the old metal cans. I take a 2" piece of masking tape then write the bolt/nut size on it and I'm ready for years of use. Some, seldom used smaller sizes are just left in a cupboard and in their original boxes.

Fasteners are available fairly inexpensively at Tractor Supply stores. I suspect they are Chinese, so only buy the Gr 8. Another, but more expensive source is Fastenal. Home Depot have, IMHO, mostly junk, good enough for home use, but not automotive. Most of the Lowe's is the same. Another good place is McMaster-Carr and on line. Theirs is 'world sourced' which means wherever they can buy it cheapest. I buy my odd ball fasteners from them including some SS. Their shipping to me is one day.
