Every spent several frustrating minutes hunting for and failing to find the end on a roll of a sticky tape? Finally picking at it and struggling to get it unrolled, with nerves frazzled and as a frayed as the sticky tape?

This simple trick will mean that never happens again....

Simply stick a small button or paperclip on the end of the sticky tape after you have finished using it. Next time you want to use it, you will see it immediately and it will lift off the tape easily, leaving you with a neat edge on the tape and a feeling of serenity.

Even simpler........turn end inside itself so you've got a 'double edge', which is not only easy to find, & but to use the roll.
Then just repeat once finished with.
Do this for any tape,
Even worse - when tape tears parallel to the roll and you can't get it back to being one solid piece :)
shudders* I know! I have something of a love/hate relationship with tape...
