Keeping hPDA deck squared

I recently began experimenting with an hPDA setup (Again, damn you, Emory!) and I am using a small binder clip to hold my deck. I have enough cards (almost 50) that the clip is hard to fit on the deck. But whenever I pull it out of my pocket, the cards have slid into a semi-fanned arrangement. This only bothers me because I am worried about cards coming out of the pack and being left in my pants to go in the washer or some such. I like using the clip though because it gives me instant access to my blank capture area on the back. Any suggestions on keeping the deck from wriggling apart?

GOD's picture

What are you trying to...

What are you trying to do with the hpda? I tried them out but found that all I really needed was a pen to paper capture device, and replaced them with a Mead Marble Memo Book.

I also found the index cards to be too bulky. If you really are using them for task management I'd suggest looking at memo slips.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
