I started dumping the buttons into the boxes according to color, including a box for clear buttons, silver and gold. I had a lot of black buttons so did one box for large black buttons and another for small black buttons.
The only ones that didn't fit were my white buttons. I ended up putting them in another plastic box I had. I think it was for pencils or school supplies or something.
This was my old button storage. These spice jar turntables were at the dollar store and I sort of went crazy buying all I could find since a few years ago they were only about $5 as I recall.
Other uses I found for them were for jewelry findings, some pearls and chip beads...
Now to get back to stitching on my January block and avoid getting distracted, but I keep thinking of things I can put into the spice jars I just emptied.
