    Help me find a cute or pretty one!
    We are required to have our keys on us at all times at school and I hate them in my pockets.

    Although I am open to any ideas...
    I am thinking one that slips over my head so I don't have to clasp it; one that retracts the keys or may have the keys clip on/off.

    I love having my id badge and keys on a lanyard around my neck, but everytime I lean over to help a student, they fall and hit the kid in the head. Or worse, they get stuck in the girls' hair. Just a thought! There was a thread on here a few weeks ago that had a link to a website with beautiful lanyards, but I don't remember what it was. Sorry!

    I have a lanyard from my undergrad. I work with seniors so they are always interested in knowing more about my school.

    Believe it or not, I found several bright and cute lanyards at the Dollar Tree - some were wooden beads in primary colors and one in natural wood tones.

    I know this is an old thread.
    I searched for it because i knew there was bound to already be a thread on what I wanted to post about.
    So I figured this would be better than starting a new thread on the exact same topic, no?
    Anyway..

    For my new job (which I'm super excited about!!), we have to wear TWO (2) ID badges, both of which will have our photos & name.
    It is required, the district people are sticklers about it.
    One doubles as the key card.
    So my question is.. where can I find a super cute lanyard that is NOT beaded or looks like a necklace?

    Check Etsy.com. Lots of cute options if you search.

    Check the local teacher store. I found a few at Wal-Mart and on Amazon before as well.

    Yeeeahhh, about that.
    I was given the option of a lanyard or a retractable pulley thing, and I chose the latter because I thought it'd be cute to match my boyfriend, who has a retractable pulley thing for his work ID .....
    And then later I realized I usually wear dresses/skirts and that there is nowhere I can clip the pulley thing to.. :blush: Idiot.
    So I decided to just buy my own cute one, maybe embroider my name on it. :p
    Also.. not sure how to wear 2 IDs?! Should I clip them on back to back so no matter which way it turns, one of them will always have the front facing out?
