Post-Its on my fridge help me remember!
Member Name: cornishchic
Advantages: Easy to use, bright
A couple of years ago, when I started education again after leaving secondary school, I went on a spending spree for stationary and things to help me get organised. I like things to be proper, even when writing notes for study it has to be in my neatest handwriting, highlighted perfectly and any spelling mistakes get Tipp-Ex thrown over them so I can do it again. With my note taking having to be perfect, I often made quick notes on Post-It's and left it in my textbook next to the thing I needed to take notes of. Now I've finished my study again (for now!) I still love Post-It notes, they help me remember many things that I would quite often forget without them.
The notes themselves come in a big pad of 100, the notes are all stuck together so you don't have to worry about chucking them in a drawer and then having to piece them back together to get some order going in the drawer. The size of each note is roughly, 12cm x 8cm, not small enough to lose, and not too big that the pad takes over.
The good thing about Post-It notes is the stickiness, each note has a line of adhesive along the top, it's about 1.5cm wide going along the whole of the note. This adhesive is sticky enough to stick to pretty much everything. Looking at my computer now, I have a note telling me to transfer money from my savings to main bank account on Monday as I have a bill going out on Tuesday! Another popular place for my Post-It notes at the moment is the fridge, whenever I need to remember anything I know that whatever it might be, it will be on the fridge. Even though the adhesive is very sticky, once removed, it doesn't leave any residue on the surface.
The bright fluorescent yellow colour of the Post-It notes means it's going to stick out amongst other paper work so you can quickly see it before piling paper together and chucking it away. The colour was particularly helpful when I was doing my Open University courses as flicking through my textbooks I could easily locate what I had bookmarked at an earlier date without having to ruin the pages.
Each note has a nice thickness, its not thin so you don't have to worry about ripping or tearing them, but it isn't too thick that it is hard to get from the pad. I can tear one of the notes from the pad with one hand easily. A good point if you are making notes from a phone call.
Post-Its are widely available from anywhere that sells stationary or office supplies for about £1+. I'd definitely recommend these, a pad seems to last a lifetime and they are easily spotted so great for remembering things, or taking notes. If I owned a monkey I would definitely make it rip each note off from the pad for me, it would make note taking a lot quicker!
Summary: I wish I owned a monkey!
