Do you prefer bins like the ones that are there, or fishing organizer 
style boxes with compartments?

Personally if we could get screws and such into an organizer setup with 
smaller bins it would be good.  I prefer the fishing/sewing organizers 
that have compartments on two sides and flip open.  If anyone knows a good 
place to pick that kind of thing up I could go shopping for them.
