How to keep the clusterfuck out of a double rope system during multipitch climbing?

Hi!

I've recently started to climb with double ropes, and I have a small (actually big) problem with rope management. With a single rope I just coil it over the rope running between my harness and the anchor. This works well most of the time, though it can still get messy, especially if belaying off my harness with a redirect, and when not swinging leads. This method ended in an utter clusterfuck with doubles.
I was thinking about getting rope buckets, but I don't really like the idea. I climb without a pack and a haul line, so I can't carry the buckets easily, nor can I haul them up. The anchors are usually two bolt anchors. Any ideas, apart from rope buckets?
Bonus question: what do you think about throwing an extra biner on each bolt (if they fit) and cloving into them with doubles, instead of cloving to the masterpoint?
