Here are 10 random things that can serve as excellent substitutes when an actual bookmark is not available or has gone missing:
1) A Sheet Of Toilet Paper
|Depending on where you are when you need a bookmark,|
this just might be the nearest, most convenient option for you.
2) A Grocery Store Receipt
|Ever feel like that ridiculously long grocery store receipt|
is just a waste of good paper? Don't let it go to waste! Fold
it over twice and you've got the perfect substitute bookmark.
3) A Post-It Note
|This is one of those Post-Its I was telling you about |
yesterday. While it may not say anything important, it will
definitely hold your place till you're ready to read again.
4) The Ripped-Off Top Of A Kleenex Box
|I've been using this particular "bookmark" for several years now. I cut|
it into an interesting shape so it would look less like what it actually is.
5) A Ticket Stub To A Sporting Event
|After the game, don't just throw that ticket away. Keep it in a safe|
place. You never know when you might suddenly need a bookmark.
6) A Severed Human Finger
7) A Fluff Of Lint From Your Belly Button
|Some people are particularly adept at collecting fibers and|
miscellaneous debris in their navels (I am not one of them –
this is not my lint). If you're one of those people, you may
be carrying – at the core of your body – a built-in bookmark.
8) A Very Narrow Writing Utensil
|Not only are these pencils handy tools for artists and carpenters, |
but they also make handy bookmarks. Their narrow design
prevents them from creasing your book binding too severely.
9) Your Shoelaces
|While the flat kind of shoelaces would probably work better, these |
round ones would work just as well as a quick, convenient bookmark.
Just be careful not to trip when you're walking with lace-less shoes.
10) A Dead Centipede
|Let's face it – once it's dead, the centipede has served whatever purpose it|
was intended to serve. Why let its brittle, multi-legged carcass go to waste?
Some people press dead leaves or flowers. Why not press a dead centipede?
