Ice cube trays designed to make tiny cocktail cubes are the perfect size for bobbins. Available at the local Dollar Store, they are inexpensive enough to have a tray for each color or type of thread you use. The trays stack and can be labeled for easy identification.

So are chocolate boxes... And having to first dispose of that nasty chocolate is a bonus!

I use blue plastic staple boxes. I'm not sure if they make them anymore, though.
