I use split-ring stitch markers- got them at Meijer, maybe 25, in assorted sizes and colors, for two bucks. I use them for knitting, too. They're very versatile.

My favorite for crochet are these:,com_phpshop/

You can take them on and off the stitch without having to unclip anything. They are great.

I make my own out of different size lobster claws. Or these are my favorite.

My daughter likes them too. She stole half of mine...

I use the contrasting yarn method I just loop a 2-3 inch piece of yarn on them with my crochet hook (the stitch you want to mark) and easily pull them out later. Especially if you are workin the crochet in the round, this is very helpful. I tried using the round plastic markers that open on the side to mark the stiches, but when I went to take them out sometimes they pulled on some of the yarn's plys and made an ugle snag that was hard to get back into shape.
