Agenda changing time is always fun for me. For an instance, it feels that life starts afresh, especially during the middle of the year. I recently changed my agenda from Rhodia Weekly Notebook to an undated Midori Traveler’s Notebook Weekly notebook refill. In addition to filling all the dates, I thought it would be nice to embellish the weekly notebook. Since the Traveler’s Notebook only has one page marker and there are currently two notebooks enclosed, it would be nice to use a removable flag to mark the current week in the agenda. While I was reaching over for a normal plastic flag, my eyes spotted rolls of washi tape sitting on my desk. Usually at the beginning of a roll of tape, there is a tab without any adhesive that eases the dispense. You can keep that part, pull the tape out just a tad bit longer, and cut. Because Washi tape removes from most paper surface cleanly and can be repositioned, you can use it as a flag, and repurpose a part that you usually discard. The bonus is that the flag will be a good decorative yet useful part to any plain notebooks.
