Button Storage

Ok, so everyone keeps asking me how I store the TONS of buttons that i've seemed to collected over the last few years.  Well, here it is. 

I hit the local dollar store and picked up a 4 pack of little white buckets for a $1 (gotta love that!)  I came home and had the kido's separate all the buttons by color (it was a great way to keep the kids entertained for a while)  I used a glue dot to stick one of the buttons on the outside of the bucket

Then I hung them using small binder clips from a metal dowel I had laying around.  The dowel is hanging from  my metal shelves by.... safety pins (I know i'm cheap)  I love it, they are right where I need them.  No more searching for the color I need, and it is high enough that the little hands hanging around the room aren't constantly getting into them!
