NeW ConTaiNerS

I had a large plastic tub full of buttons sitting on a shelf in my cubbyhole.
They were stored in plastic bags, some on cards, in bottles or sewn together & many were just loose.
The other day while out shopping, I spied a set of coloured containers which immediately my brain turned into button containers. They even had lid colours the same as the buttons I had loose.
So from that mess... to this... How good do they look NoW... & so easy to find.
And as a bonus...all 5 new containers fit into the original tub on the shelf again.
The container set of 5 were approx $3.50 from the ReJecT ShoP...
... & I think I'll go purchase another set...

Great organisation there. I have coloured lids on glass spice jars that I store many of my buttons in. Sadly, not enough jars and too many buttons LOL.

Cute! I like color coding things and tend to get colored containers in lots of different shapes and sizes at Dollar Tree. If you shop throughout the year you can get all kinds of colors from dark to bright. If there's not a store close by, you might be able to order online.
