Love the idea of using a popsicle stick! I have always folded over, but the stick works so much better! Thanks!
What a great idea! You have no idea of the times I have "lost" the end of the shipping tape. Thanks.
I learned the fold over trick eons ago when I worked in an industrial shop. We used all kinds of tapes (duct, teflon, electrical, etc) and the guys were strict about it. Anyone who forgot was ragged unmercifully LOL. Doubt they would have changed and I am too old to now but I like your paper clip idea. :)
Great tip, like the others who posted I usually fold the tape but your idea is so much better. Thanks.
I also fold the beginning edge but I like the paper clip and popsicle stick ideas better. Thanks!
I use a single edge razor blade to keep the end of the tape easily available and then the tape can be cut without hunting up scissors! (Not good for young kids.)
Thank you! Nothing makes me "grrrrr" more than fighting to find the end when I have a package to get off in a hurry and the post office is closing soon, and...
Great idea! I usually just fold the very beginning slightly after I make a cut so I can tell where it begins but also so I can, well, begin it again. So thanks for that tip. I like it!
The paper clip is the first thing I got my hands on when this idea popped into my head. A popsicle stick works even better. You just need something to hold that tape up so when you make the cut, the tape won't fall back down and stick.
In the past I have held it with my finger, then folded a corner on the end but my problem was sometimes I would lose the end before I could make the fold.
