Take a mason jar and paint the lid with chalkboard paint for easy organization! I used homemade chalk board paint and it worked well, you need multiple coats otherwise the chalk scrapes off the paint. Also wait for the paint to dry for at least a day before writing on it with chalk.
Mason Jar Storage Shelf | Crafts and DIY Community -- Love this idea! P.S. My dad did something similar in the garage, and it works great for all those little pieces (e.g., nuts , bots, screws, wire caps).
