Double sided tape was my revelation. Looks cleaner but somehow seems too indulgent for regular use.


I also use the bookmark button to satisfy my urge to ‘keep useful stuff’. It conveniently tricks my brain into thinking the subject is ‘done’ and lets me forget it. Which is a lot better for my sanity than actually watching these ‘lifehacks’. :smiley:
