Buttons And Beads That Fell Off

Buttons And Beads That Fell Off
Day: Wednesday
Date: January 8, 2014
Parshat: Beshalah

Buttons that have never been used are muktzeh. Buttons that have been used do not become muktzeh even if they fall off. Therefore if ones button falls off whether on or before Shabbat he may put it aside to reattach after Shabbat. Beads from a necklace or a bracelet that became undone on Shabbat may be gathered and set aside to restring after Shabbat. However they may not be restrung on Shabbat. Even though garbage has no purpose on Shabbat, one may still take out the garbage on Shabbat.  If one took out the whole can he may bring it back in afterward even though he doesn't need it on Shabbat and is just bringing it in so it doesn't get stolen.
