Keeping track of measured ingredients

What is the significance of this?  It’s telling me that I’ve measured 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  I used to use a system where I’d point the handle to the corresponding number of the clock to help keep track of measures, but honestly if you look up for a moment it’s hard to tell 1:00 from 2:00.  Today I realized that I could simply use the four corners of my sugar bin.  Top is one, right is two, and the above means three measures.

I’m awfully proud of myself.  Now to get a new scale so I’m not volume-measuring everything.
