Featured in the PR book!
Use a Sharpie marker to write your thread color number on an extra bobbin for colors you use often. I have 5 colors of navy that are all slightly different, and when sewing late at night, it's hard to match up an already wound bobbin. And there may not be enough thread left on your spool to wind another. Save time and thread -- On your mark, get set, go!

I use many different colors of thread; my way of marking bobbins is using the plastic bobbin boxes and I write the thread # on the plastic just below the bobbin. For the ones in the bottom row, I mark the # on the side of the bobbin box.

I have found that the white looseleaf hole re-inforcers are easy to write on with a fine tip pen, and fit right over the bobbin hole. This way you can re-label the same bobbin time and again. Holds pretty good too.

Those are great ideas, too! I forgot to mention these are Viking 1100 clear bobbins, so the Sharpie really shows up.
