Cut a piece of eavestrough two or three feet long, put a nice big hole in the bottom at one end to hang it up. Now you can dump that container of mixed sizes etc. into the trough, spread the stuff out, find what you want and easily pour all the bits back into the little drawer. One of the handiest little time savers I've ever used. I like using the plastic trough for this.
