Elastic bands are great for keeping notebooks closed in a cluttered pocket or purse. In fact, it never occurred to me that there might be other ways to use them until I saw a friend use his Roadbook band as a bookmark. In hindsight, it’s a simple idea: loop the band around the unused portion of your notebook so you can flip straight to it when you open.
I’m not a total convert (the notebook above, for example, has little tear off corners that work just as well), but there are definitely times when, working at home and juggling multiple notebooks, I’ve put the idea to use.
What do you do with your band?
