    If you're handy make little plastic cut outs from plastic lids and stick it to the bottom.

    A hole puncher should keep things neat...

    They also sell those at several online stores like dealextreme or 3M

    Keep the mouse tracking pads clean. If they are new, give them time to break inMy Magic Mouse is more slippy after a few days. I prefer a clean hard table over a soft mouse pad. Pads are no longer necessary because modern mice don't use balls anymore.

    Or you can just look around for your old mice and take out the pads from them and attach them to your current mouse.

    I find over sized mouse pads really easy to use.
