How Do I Store My Glasses??

One thing is for certain Autumn has just begun and the scent of Pumpkin Lattes from every coffee shop is very potent. Another certainty is that the sun isn’t shining as bright anymore and sunglasses aren’t the go to accessory during this season.Figuring out where to store your different shades and even your prescription eyeglasses can be a hassle.That’s why we here at PAE have compiled a list of cool, cute, and space saving ways to store your extra glasses.

If you like crafts:

  • You can create a homemade storage space for your glasses by using an old hanger. Of course you would want to decorate it and make it your own, but a hanger is a fun, easy craft project for a fall weekend.
  • You can create a ribbon and tack shelf to store your glasses.  All you need is 2 or more spools of ribbon, a bulletin board, and pushpins. First you will want to place the ribbon on a bulletin board. Then hold it in place with a tack. Next you will create a V with the ribbon and use another pushpin to keep the V in place. You should repeat these steps until the ribbon reaches the end of the bulletin board. Your glasses are ready to hang!

If you like vintage:

Etsy.com has countless vendors and stores that sell various eyeglass cases and holders that can hold up to more than one pair of glasses. They have various items that include:

  • Glasses holders (that can be hung or displayed on a wall)
  • Leather storage bags
  • Vintage glasses storage boxes
  •  Vintage wall racks
  • Vintage storage bags

If you like simplicity:

If you’re not into crafts or vintage there are simple, neat, low cost ways to store your extra eyeglasses and save space.

  • Use a key rack for dual purposes
  • Hang shelving and place glasses on shelves
  • Clear a drawer in a dresser and place glasses neatly in the drawer (getting small dividers may help with keeping the glasses in place)

Beat the Heat with PAE's Summer Picks

The dog days of summer are here and we can't think of a better way to beat the heat than to head to the movies or find an air conditioned corner to curl up in with a book. Whatever your preference, we here at PAE have come up with a few suggestions to get you started!

Robyn's picks

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
I'm about halfway through "All the Light We Cannot See" and it's been fantastic. Set during World War II, it shifts between the stories of a German orphan soldier and a blind Frenchwoman on different sides of the war. Doerr writes a beautiful story full of vivid imagery. Definitely worth picking up.

Ted 2/Paper Towns
"Ted 2" was hilarious and completely worth going to see (who doesn't love a talking teddy bear?!), but I've really been waiting for "Paper Towns" to come out. If it's anything like the book, it should be fantastic.

Colleen's picks

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
I chose "Go Set a Watchman" because "To Kill a Mockingbird" is such a classic and it's so interesting to see how Scout and all of the other characters are faring years later. I love being able to finally see a little bit more of Harper Lee's writing.

Despite being raunchy, it was still hilarious without being dumb or immature, and I was smiling the whole time.
Mike's pick
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I finally got around to reading Gone Girl. I didn't want to put this book down. This thriller is full of twists and turns and will keep you guessing. It was well written and engrossing and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Jenna's picks
Spin by Catherine McKenzie
It's a modern book about a girl and what she risks to land the job of her dreams, which I love. It's super funny and serious at the same time. It's like watching a reality show which I love because her imagery and descriptions are perfect.
22 Jump Street
It's just as good, maybe better, than the first and is absolutely hilarious. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum - enough said!
