I'm a big fan of used medicine bottles for smaller components. (People can
donate) Baby food containers work well too. I have a few film containers in
my own collection, but i have no clue where you would source those these
days. I also tend to put all my cables into seperate sandwich bags... No
tangle and easier to label. Plus cables can get nasty with too much dust.

You end up with a little more digging, but i would imagine you could just
take some wood and the right size bit and cut out a grid of holes (think
spice rack) for the bottles. The same applies for things like screws and
brads, nut jars work great for that. Tons of fun containers in the recycle
