Run It Up a Flagpole and See If Anyone Salutes It

January 2nd is the day to try out something new and see how it is received by others. The name of the holiday comes from the expression “Run it up a flagpole and see if anyone salutes it” which trying out new ideas to see if they gain acceptance and popularity, just like a flag gains respect by people saluting it. So on this gift list you will see some of the newest items available along with some things that might inspire you. You can also try out a new hairstyle or wear clothing that you would not normally choose for yourself. Brainstorm new business ideas or plan to renovate a room in your home.

Not only does this notebook save paper by having pages that can be reused up to 500 times, the pages are not even made of wood. They are made of a very finely ground stone.
