When I am sewing or doing homework I frequently put my glasses on or take them off, and have a hard time keeping track of them.

Well, I made a little caddy with a plastic bucket and clothespins. These clothespins are good for holding textbooks open or for holding my glasses! I've seen similar holders selling at Wal-mart but thought they were kind of stupid The fun thing is I can clip this on anything (like a pencil cup) and have a handy glasses stand at the ready!

Fabulous idea. My cats are always knocking my glasses onto the floor and I often misplace my reading glasses.

Great help - you'lll augh because I take mine off for close up work but then I can't see where I have put them if they aren't nearby. This way I hope I can stop feeling around - literally - to find them!!

This is a great tip! As soon as I read this, I put a clip on my pens cup by the computer. One for me & 1 for DH. This would make a great holiday gift!

Well, thanks! The several cute ones I've purchased don't work.
