Small nuts and bolts, where do you get them?

I asked this question once before in a bad spot I think. Where do you all get small nuts and bolts. I went to a local hardware store for really small nuts and bolts, like 2x20mm, 2x12 mm, and similar sized imperial nuts and bolts. I walked out of the place with like 30 bolts and 30 nuts and it was over $30.00!!! I used all of them on one project and still have to go get more. But at 45 cents plus a bolt, it is gonna bankrupt me. Is there a good place online to buy these things in like 100 packs or boxes or something for cheaper than a dollar for one nut and one bolt?

Buying from the US

Hi!

I've found  a bunch of nice electronics at MaximumRobotics that I want to order. But i'm a little conserned about how much extra I'll have to pay in taxes, customs etc.

Do any of you guys have experience buying things in USA and get it shipped to a EU country?

I live in Denmark and is not familiar with how the danish customs operates.
