Just use anti static bags to put the items in the shoe box and you should be ok.

Big cards and boards - put them in the box and separate them with a sheet of printer paper or thin cardboard.

Memory modules and small cards - wrap them up in tissue paper and put them in a zip lock bag. Place these on top of the heavier cards and boards.

People make WAY too big of an issue out of these things.
Work on a wooden table. Touch something metal before handling the components. Don't wear fuzzy socks and shuffle across the carpeting while doing this.
