If you want to organize your notebook but you don’t want to deal with sticky tabs or other items that poke out from the edges of your Moleskine notebook, this simple hack is for you. Using a marker, you can create sections simply by coloring the edges of your notebook. Be sure to use a water-based or a non-bleeding marker if you don’t want the color to seep into the pages.

If you prefer a monotone look, you can color every other section of your journal with a black marker.

Slide a clean piece of paper into the notebook behind the last page of your section. Make sure the paper sticks out on the top, bottom and the side. Be sure to push the paper close to the binding. Repeat these steps by sliding a second piece of paper in front of your section.

3. Fold the paper that is sticking out away from your section. Add a second piece of paper in front of your section and fold it the opposite direction. These pieces of paper will protect the other pages in your Moleskine from being colored and will keep your sections straight.

4. Once you have inserted both pieces of paper, your notebook will look like this. Before you color the edges with markers, be sure to squeeze the pages together tightly. If the pages are not compressed, the ink might find its way between the pages. You can also compress the journal between your hand and the edge of a flat surface using even pressure.
