The other day, I was at my local office supply store when I came upon these. They are Avery Note Tabs, mini size. I was very excited when I found these. I already have the small size in use. But the mini ones are perfect for top tab use. I’m sure they could also be used for tabs along the side of a binder. I use the Filofax blank tabs though, so that’s how I came up with the top tab purpose. I bought three different packs because they each had different colors. And as anyone who has read this blog long enough knows, I love to color code my items.
I am now using these tabs in my Happiness Binder. I was using Post-it Labels tabs. These are still great, but I was not able to color code with them, so the Avery tabs are a better choice for me. I now have certain items color coded based on the tab the live behind.
Behind my “Yoga” tab, I have certain practices labeled with the green tab. My notes for anti-anxiety are marked in blue, behind my “Calm” tab. The “Gratitude” tab holds items marked in purple. Notes behind my “Happiness” tab are marked with yellow.
My excitement at finding these was so great, the first thing I did when I got home was to set this up. I used my label maker to create the text for each tab. (You can see that some are quite crooked and need to be trimmed a little, but at least it’s neat!) I have other uses for these in mind and I’m looking forward to getting to those mini-projects.
In the meantime, for anyone who is interested in top tabs (or side tabs), I highly recommend these. They are sturdy, stick well and of course, come in an array of colors.
