Lowes has some on the regular screw isle that are cheaper than the ones over where they keep the kreg stuff. That's what I buy.

There are a select few that don't get that look. They are the exception.

They are square drive too so they work with the bit from the Kreg kit.

I've been using the Kreg ones that I got from Amazon. Hope Depot and Lowes carry them, but I've never given a thought to looking to see if I could find something just like them. Might start using those.

I paid the premium for the $30 variety pack on Amazon. Still haven't run out of a single size. Be sure you get a square head as it will make a big difference. Not sure if the savings on the house brands are worth it but you may have a lot more projects than me!

Biscuits may be a cheaper solution if you are tackling a lot of joints.

2x4 on both pieces 2.5” screw I think. It’s determined by the width of both pieces
