Advantages: Great for quick notes
Disadvantages: None for me
I'm sure almost everyone knows what post it notes are but just in case they are a little squares of paper than come in blocks of around 450 sheets for around £6 to purchase. What makes these different from any other paper is they have an area on the back of it that has sticky adhesive on it which means you can stick it just about anywhere.
You can get them in many different colours although I like to stick to original canary yellow as I find these stand out better and also pen seems to show better as it is a lighter colour so no straining on the eyes to see what you have wrote. Although they are only small in size the amount of information you can actually right on them is adequate especially as I mainly use them for quick thoughts than long essays worth of writing.
I have my pad next to the phone so I can leave messages on it for my husband if anyone calls but they stick just about anywhere most of the things I need to remember like appointments for my children an birthday parties etc get stuck on the fridge just because this is the room we get most use out of so I know I will always pass through the kitchen and then I will check my sticky notes to make sure I have not forgot anything for that day.While I was at college they were great for noting down ideas for assessments while they were still fresh in m head otherwise it would come to sitting down an writing my essay and having completely forgotten all the ideas I had previously had.
They remain sticky for a good while and I can move those 3 or 4 times before they fail to re stick and fall off which I think is fantastic. I only tend to leave the up for a couple of days but they last that long easily and this is just how much time I need to remind myself of things.They are easy to pull off the pad and it is very easy to pick up just 1 post it note rather than puling and a few coming away so minimal on waste. You can recycle these notes which are great as it makes me feel less guilty about using so many small pieces of paper.
You can wrote with any pen on these and it works fine the only thing I found is if you use a thick felt tip pen then it can leak through the paper not greatly so it spoils paper underneath but it is visible through the other side I tend to stick to biro when using them.Of course they are used in many offices and this is because of their great ability to be flexible and handy. I love my post it notes and now being pregnant I have what I like to call baby brain and can hardly remember a thing these are fantastic at reminding me of things I would otherwise forget.
Summary: Really handy
