Post-It notes

[ #8343 ]

My brother told me I was crazy when I bought a package of 12 or so post-it note pads earlier this year. I'd never use them all. I didn't need anywhere near that many. Slowly, I've scattered these things around the house and now there's always one near when I need it. And believe me, with my scattered brain, I always need to make a list of something to remember.

Now I've hit on another idea. I'd been thinking of getting a bulletin board, but today I realized that if I just stick all my post-it notes on the door I will see them as I leave, and can even grab the appropriate note or notes for whatever excursion I'm making. This is great; two notes so far, going on two hundred I'm sure.

This beats PDAs all to pieces. If I had a PDA I'd spend all my time looking for it. There's literally a post-it pad nearby almost everywhere in the house. I scoff at your high tech solutions! :)

  • I use the heck out of Post-Its and I agree they are very useful.

    However, every few days, I go through the clutter around my work spots, looking for the gems that don't really add any value to being posted anymore. Phone numbers, appointments way in the future, tasks that I need to do, all get committed to my PDA (various passwords get committed to an app on my PDA, phone numbers go into my PDA, etc.) or my Reminder System I use on my laptop (currently Outlook, but I'm looking for something better).


    • This is more for to-do lists, etc. I, too, have had the problem with scattered bits of info on post-it notes, but usually I go through some similar process of assembling them and discarding them after determining that the information is either committed to memory or a file somewhere.

    I'm guessing you're not married.
