Rubber Band Can Hold that Loose Marker in Place

There are little annoyances in life that can get the best of us. For many it can be someone’s laugh or the ticking of a clock. For me, it’s a writing board without a place to put the marker.

Here is why this gets to me more than most people: Common sense says to simply place it on the nearest table. However, most of the time it rolls off and you have to bend over and grab it off the dirty floor.

Thanks to a rubber band, this little bother can be gone forever. Simply wrap a rubber band around the band and loop it through like tying a shoe. Once it’s through, expand it over the edge of the table.

Voila! As long as you do not mind a rubber band being on your marker, the edge of that table can now serve as your marker holder.
