“New” studio and bobbin storage

I’m in the process of moving my studio. Though I dream of building a studio above our garage that isn’t in the cards for now. I’m going from a large space with a utility sink to a smaller room and it’s a major change but there is something I won’t be changing – The way I store my large quilting bobbins. It’s not fancy but it works well for me and the drawer is directly next to me when I sit at the quilting machine. Here is what I did – Using a foil or other stiff cardboard roll (paper towel rolls are not stiff enough and are too big in diameter), slice it in half lengthwise and hot glue craft foam or cardboard to each end (I used 1/4″ thick craft foam). Glue the ends on so that they makes “feet” and when placed in the drawer it won’t roll over.

Do you have a clever (and cheap) studio storage solution? I’d like to hear it.
