Earlier this week I wrote about my lost earring. Today I thought I'd share a tip for anyone with the same problem, losing them...uh...not the finding them part.
All you need is a pack of buttons. I store my earrings in a craft organizer. Then, I use a button to keep the pair together. No more searching for matching earrings. I also keep a couple of buttons on my nightstand. I can't tell you how many times I've taken my earrings out during the night and never seen them again. It is much easier to find a brightly colored button than it is to find an earring.
Good luck to you and I hope you never find an earring in your child's diaper!
