Whenever you're using a metal rule and need to mark a measurement on it for transfer, you'll find that a small magnet "clamped" to the ruler will hold your place easier and neater than any other kind of marker.

I recently got a newish' bird feeder. I was trying to be careful pouring the seed into a funnel, then that overflowed. I had a lot of birdseed on my cutting board. I keep packaging supplies nearby and today just happened to have a ruler close. It occurred to me how much a straight edge might help.

Well it sure did!


You could use this tip for cereal, flour, cornmeal, rice, split peas, and the list goes on and on!
