: : : Is there an English equivalent to the Russian saying "make a wedge on your nose" meaning "take a due note, make a sign just for memory"?

: : : Thank you.

: : Tie a string on your finger.
: : SS

: Tie a knot in your handkerchief. (VSD)

Thank you. Regarding a handkerchief there is an old Russin habit to do so to recall a forgotten thing (sometimes transformed into tieing a knot on any inappropriate thing - for example, a table's leg).
