Button Up

Do you purchase clothing that comes with an extra button or two? Maybe even extra thread? Do you know if the buttons go to a shirt or pair of pants? Do you own this article of clothing anymore? Here's a quick tip on keeping those loose buttons together and giving them an i.d. so when the time comes to repair a button or thread you know where to find the replacement.

1 - Buttons and thread usually come inside a small plastic ziplock bag. When you cut the tags off write the purchase date and clothing description on the back of the tag or write on a post it note. Fold up the note and stick inside the bag.

2- Keep all of your buttons and extra thread in a box, sewing kit, or business card folder and store in your or closet, laundry room.




  • I always throw the plastic bag away and keep the buttons, but I realize now that I might be wrong. Thanks for the great tip Karli!

    I love your blog!
