Screw selection "starter pack" for newbie DIY-er

Can anyone recommend or has anyone seen a good deal on a selection/set of screws suitable for most tasks for a new DIYer? A box for storage would be nice too.

Not sure if the sets in Homebase are going to be good value for money.

Many thanks.

Hi Jitters

Years ago when I bought my first house and blundered into the world of DIY I bought a starter set from Screwfix. Something like this:

Quality always seems good to me and it gives you a good selection to get started with.

Good luck with the DIY!
hi, def agree with above post screwfix is the best place 99% of the time for everything you need for diy, you can either get it delivery to your door for a charge (unless over £50 spent i think) or you can collect at one of their stores. below is a link for a very good set which is in their current deals. really sturdy clip locking metal carry case and the little plastic tubs inside pull out rather than you having to grab a handful of screws etc. the guide in the top of the box also tells you your sizes so you can grab the right ones quickly. £20 is a really good price for this type of set.;jsessionid=JFHXYIATJD0GGCSTHZPCFEY?_dyncharset=UTF-8&fh_search=57973-13&searchbutton.x=0&searchbutton.y=0&searchbutton=submit
Thanks for taking the time to reply, I've repped accordingly. Both packs (which are essentially the same :) ) look great, I'll get the carry case version though - it'll help keep things tidy. My nearest screwfix isn't too far away so I'm going to collect.
