How Should I Organize Electrical Components

Like most electronics hobbyists, I have hundreds of different tiny electrical components lying around.  I've been looking for a simple and relatively compact method of organizing them, but I can't find any that I like.  Any ideas/suggestions?

My favorite method is using the transparent plastic boxes for storing fishing tackle. I'm talking about the type that are a shallow box with a hinged lid, with movable dividers for setting up different size compartments within the box.

This is what I'm talking about. There's a store in my town that sells them for less than on this web site.

I guess I've paid about 4 or 5  dollars for the larger ones. I don't know if that meets your definition of affordable, but I've found it to an awsome way to organize parts.

That's a great idea, thank you! I was also considering something along these lines: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/cubic-configurable-storage-toolboxes-10-pack-4580
