Storing Stripes

When cutting fabrics for patchwork, it's pretty much inevitable that you end up at some point with leftover stripes of various width and length.
The big question now is how to store them.
A quick and cheap solution is to make large bobbins from cardboard. Mine are about 10 x 8 inches and hold 8 ~ 10 stripes.
I do try to color coordinate them, but that's not always possible.
At least now then don't fly around all over the place and when I search for stripes and know what I have.
