Tape Hack: Use a Paperclip to Hold the End

tape hack

All you want to do is tape something: a package that you need to mail, a box when you’re moving, the trim around the window frame that you are getting ready to paint. And you’re spinning that silly roll of tape around and around, looking for the end of the roll!

Here’s a simple tape hack that will save you time and frustration: every time you use tape, when you’re done with it, fold over the end and add a paperclip. Then, the next time you need some tape, finding where it starts on the roll will be simple.
