I use these screws in the shop to build jigs and fixtures, and for shelving, cleats, benches, and for holding up lights.
I used to buy the one pound boxes, and be very careful about how many screws I used. Ever since I got the 25 lb bucket, I have had a new sense of freedom and creativity that has allowed me to try building new things in the shop. Instead of saying "I wish I had some place to put all these tools I bought at HD!", now I just say "I'm building me some shelves!"
Having plenty of storage has made my shop cleaner, and a more pleasant place. My wife normally vacuums the shop and takes out the trash. When she saw how I was cleaning up, she decided to make curtains for the windows in the shop. She went to the fabric store and found some Bud LIte motif cloth, and made curtains for all the windows. I put the curtain rods up with #8 x 1-5/8 in. Coarse Drywall Screws (25 lb.-Pack).
Pros: Stylish

What is there to say about a 25lbs. bucket of 1 5/8" coarse thread drywall screws? Basic drywall screws are great for attaching drywall to studs well as plywood and mdf.
