Get a used golf tee from someone and with a tiny bit of glue put it into the hole where the screw came out. Allow it to dry and cut if off flush with the cabinet.

Now you can put another screw back into the hole and it will hold. My hubby is a woodworker and this trick works everytime. Kay

If the holes are only a little too big, use a toothpick or two.
