I like to drop the tails of lines down the companionway hatch. After each tack, I put the jibsheets on the seats, arranging them so they'll run free. That eliminates the likelihood of a foot cleat, and greatly reduces the likelihood of a butt cleat, because people will usually avoid sitting on a line, especially if it's wet, and it also reduces the likelihood of a hockle in the working jibsheet when you release it and it runs through a block during a tack.
