Using a Page Marker in your Stalogy

This is the first post of my new blog and after much thought on how I should start, I decided to just jump in with an ordinary planner post <LOL>!

Up until about 4 months ago, my planners were all rings, so learning how to do things differently is taking some time.  The first thing on my planner to-do list is to figure out what kind of page marker to use.  Any page marker that I have used in the past was just pressed into the rings and it stayed where it was supposed to.

I recently laminated a 4x6 picture of my family, attached a tab, and have been using that as my page marker.  I like it, but I am always misplacing it!  I experimented with just using tabs to mark my daily page but didn't like constantly resticking it every day.

Today I came up with a pretty good idea that I am going to use for now.  I say, "For Now" because I think there is a better solution that I just haven't found yet.  I include lots of stuff in my planner, but the planning portion is always the same:  a week on one page followed by 6-7 daily pages (sometimes I combine the weekend).  I decided to mark the weekly page with a specific color, knowing that once I got to that page, my current page is close by.  At the end of the week, I will either move the tab to the current week OR add a new tab to the current week using that same specific color.

Does that make sense?  It does in MY head, LOL!  I have yet to experiment with floating tabs, which sounds like a good idea, but again I think I would probably misplace that, too!  What kind of page marker do you use?  Please share in the comments below!!
