Sticky little notes
Author Name: superness11
Post it notes are useful around the house. My partner and I use them regularly to remind each other of day to day tasks we need to do. For example, I came home the other week to helpful note on the fridge pointing out that we have no milk! A little bit late to receive the note, when I am about to open the fridge door but you can see the point!
Probably the most use I get out of a pack of post it notes is around the office, I use them to jot down telephone numbers and codes and stick them in useful places around my computer monitor so I can see them.
The best thing about them is that they are easy to slap on and once you do not need the note anymore you can peel it off and throw it away without so much as a little mark left in its place.
*Price and availability*
The packets come in a variety of sizes, but you can pick up a colourful stack of 100 that are around 3.5 inches x 3.5 inches for just over one pound. I have a multi colour stack so after every 25 sheets you get a different colour.
The pads of post it notes are made from recyclable paper and come in blocks of around 100. They are usually yellow, but these days you can get blocks of different colours, usually quite bright and garish to catch your eye. The block I have has four shades of colour in and it changes after every 25 sheets. There is yellow, green, pink and orange
At the back of the paper is a centimetre thick layer of stickiness that leaves no mark when it is removed. This thin layer of glue holds the whole pad together. It is quite incredible really as to touch it ,it does not feel that strong!
They stick to pretty much any surface. The only real problem I have encountered was when I wanted to stick one on a window, as the window was slightly covered in condensation the water prevented the glue from sticking. They can be stuck and re stuck a couple of times but eventually they will lose their stickiness. Any pen or pencil will write on them, I have yet to find one that doesn't.
I would not be without post its, there is a block in my office and a block at home. I find them really useful in all walks of life.
I often use them as book marks as they stick to pages but without damaging them. I find them most useful when looking though cookery books as I can save a number of recipes with ease.
I have even played a game of "Who am I?" with a pack of post its. You throw in a bunch of celebrity names in to a hat then draw a famous person's name out of it. Copy the name on to a post it and then stick it on to the players forehead. They can then ask a number of questions in order to guess "who they are." The post it makes the game fun because everyone else can see who the guesser is, except the guesser! After play and the person guesses, they can remove the sticky post it without losing any hair or experiencing any pain!
They are so easy to use and such an ingenious concept. I wish I had thought of them!
A great addition for the home or office and suit a variety of purposes, they come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs.
Summary: Long live the humble pen and paper!
