Is there a better way?

Is there a way to get an updated collection of the list items (those already present + those we add ), so that we don't have to call the attachListItemButtons() function in two parts of our code?

it somehow feels redundant to me. I'm not sure if it's possible. Any ideas?

Further along in the course you will learn about delegation. A delegated handler can handle multiple items, and will also cover items added later without needing to attach handlers directly to them.
