In the wood shop, blue tape has a million uses. Yes, literally a million. One of these is to make a quick list of things I need to pick up next time I’m at Home Despot. I tape it to the wall in a handy location so it stays in my mind (with luck) and is ready for additions. Sometimes on wood I’ll use blue tape to layout hole or joinery locations. And pencil is very hard to read on blue tape, so I usually use a Sharpie. So yeah, sometimes I make a shopping list using blue tape and Sharpies, reminding me to pick up blue tape and Sharpies.
