How do you store your bobbins?

Look at this great idea for storing bobbins: Here. It is a Japanese site but the pictures are self-explanatory. This is just so timely because I've been pondering this and my solutions have been more complex - what a great way to use a paperclip! I'll let you know how I go...

That is a terrific idea! Right now I use a bobbin buddy.It is round like a donut and holds all my bobbins in their place.

How clever! I don't have that many bobbins, though. LOL!

My mom has the thing that Jackie has and it is nice. The bobbins can't unwind.

Here is a picture of one full of thead. My local quilt store sells them, but I think you can get them at Joann's, too. This was the first one I found a picture of so I grabbed the link, but you can find them cheaper than that without the full bobbins in it.
