If you’re doing any surface mount work, you should look into these resistor kits from Digikey. You can get them in any package (these are the 0805) and for ~$60 they’re a great deal. The compact box has strips of 50 each of 1 ohm to 1 Mohm 5% resistors. I’ve used them extensively when prototyping designs and reworking boards – and have the 0805, 0603 and 1206 sets.
