What do you do with the colored strip?


"I am a relative late comer to the world of Moleskine and a switcher
from the Palm world. But I have already owned 3 Moleskines in two
months and they are large squared, pocket sketchbook and pocket
japanese album. They all came with a colored strip on the cover
representing the type of the notebook. Admittedly, it was the color
strip to attract my attention from the crowd and it looks very cool
with a black background.

I don’t know you but I have been collecting these strips without
knowing any practicality. So, here is a question for you. What do you
do with the colored strip? Throw them away? No…"

"I’ve never really been a fan of packratting needless things. Some
people like to hoard items that hold no practical use and, all too
likely, not much emotional meaning. To me, that colored strip is just
as much a part of the disposable packaging as the cellophane wrapper or
price tag…"

I used to use them as bookmarks, or just keep them for posterity but now I chuck ’em."
