Karen,

Bulk packages of Fender Washers might get you down to 3 cents each. But =
those may still be in the 10 - 20 g range.

Here are some for about 4 cents each:
Amazon.com: IMPERIAL 76302 THICK FENDER WASHER 1/4x1-1/4 - ZINC: Home =
Improvement

Even less expensive option:
Find your favorite engineer and offer to sort his collection of odd nuts =
and bolts.
