Transparent tape can often be difficult to unstick from it self to begin unrolling. A paper clip can be used to make this much easier. This is a guide about paper clip tape marker.

Have you ever spent too much time looking for the end of your tape roll, very frustrating! Just break a bread tag in half or use a paper clip and attach on to the end of the tape roll, no more hassles.

Need help finding the end of packaging/scotch tape? Place a toothpick under the end. It will be easy to remove and replace with no tape wasted.

Sounds better than just folding over the last half-inch of tape, thanks!

If you find it hard to locate the end on packing or strapping tape, place a thin ribbon or string under the last portion where you removed tape from roll. Next time it's easy to just lift and use. No more picking and searching for the beginning of the roll.

Or you could just fold the end over on itself so that the very end doesn't stick down....duh!
