Here’s a little tip that works for me--- whenever there is a part of a book I refer to often, whether it be a recipe, a tip or just an inspirational passage, I like to mark it with one of those clear stick on tabs (the kind you can slip a label into). Here you can see the tabs I’ve added to my Tightwad Gazette. Also handy for marking holiday recipes! Post-its and flags work, but they tend to come off and get bent up. The tabs serve as a permanent place holder for me, and if one of the kiddos helpfully closes the book when I’m not looking, it’s easy to find my page again.Be sure to check out the first edition of my new Tuesdays' Toolbox meme, and see how common everyday tools can be used for uncommon learning!
