Never throw away buttons, when you discard old clothing. I cut them off and store them in a container. I use them in may crafts and you never know when a button on a shirt will need replaced. My button jar has saved me time and money!
I also cut off good buttons before donated clothing to Goodwill. You can replace cheap/ugly buttons on items in your existing wardrobe and make them look richer and of better quality then they were when you bought them. (04/27/2005)
I too have a jar of buttons that I have been adding buttons for years. I originally started saving them in an old glass canning jar to put on my kitchen cupboard. They come in very handy when I am looking for an odd button. (10/08/2008)
