Tip for Saving Buttons

If you plan on making a shirt that has buttons on it into a rag, be sure to the take buttons off. Buttons serve no purpose on a rag and you can use the buttons for something else. Once you have taken all the buttons off, sew them all together so that you will have a matching set. This is much better than tossing them into a jar and having to sift through buttons for a matching set.

You could also thread the buttons on a twisty tie (recycled from the bread). The twisty is stiff enough to thread the buttons easily and is quicker than threading a needle. (06/22/2004)
