Any tips for making bobbins without buying expensive plastic things?
Clothes pins have worked well for me.
I agree with both methods already suggested, you can also use empty plastic containers and cut the plastic to the shape required
I think it's easier to tie yarn butterflies. I find they don't tangle as quickly and there's no "equipment" needed. I always use one when doing a long tail cast-on.
If you mean the ones for small amounts of wool when doing colour work, they can be made out of stiff card to the same shape as the expensive ones.
