How do you keep your sewing tools Part 2

This is how I keep my needles. It looks like how the Chinese doctor will keep their acupuncture needles, hehehehe ;P

One day, I was at my mum's place doing some sewing and I wanted to bring the needle(took from mum's sewing box, not sure why I'm so cheapskate :S) home. I found a cut off legging from my mum's pants and I just pinned my needle there with the remaining thread tucked in the tube. The needle and thread stay there so well, it's so convenient to bring them around and not to say save thread that is still long enough for use, which I will usually throw away as it seems so troublesome to keep.
Threads in plastic container. I don't have the leisurely of big spaces to store my sewing stuffs, my area get dusty easy too, so I like to keep them in container. However I think it would be great to be able to keep them in thread spool holder.

Used to keep the bobbin threads in a metal container but they ended up all entangled after sometimes. So now I'm keep them seperately in another container like this. Currently this is the best solution I can think of. How do you keep your threads?
