Post-it - decoration around my monitor?
Member Name: kerrycwy
Advantages: Simple; easy to use; multi-functional; reliable
We all know about post-it notes, right? It is those sticky little paper which you can write things on and stick around to remind yourself.
When we talk about post-it, we usually think of those yellow little sticky paper in rectangular shapes. However, 3M has been developing new products all the time and the post-it sticky notes are now available in various shapes, colours, etc. You can get one in neon colours, heart shapes, hello kitty prints.... However, my favourite is still the traditional ones. I only use post-it in office and I believe that the y look more professional!
Basically there is no limit to the use of post-it. You can be as creative as you want. I use it in the office with a pack next to the phone, so that I can put down telephone messages. I also write down some important tasks to be completed and stick it onto my monitor. A WORD OF CAUTION on this: You will soon have a nice yellow frame for your computer monitor! I now have difficulty in finding a place to stick my little yellow papers now! I have also seen colleagues sticking so many post-its onto the monitor and they end up having difficulty reading on the screen!
I also like to use post-it to mark my important appointments, e.g. appointments with doctors. I use the smallest one to write down the time and stick it onto my calendar which I post on the fridge door. In that way, you can know quickly when your appointment is. And if the time changes, just get a new post-it and throw the old one away!
Other similar products
There are so many similar products around in market now (with various sizes, shapes, colours, etc.) and often at a cheaper price. However, I still like to stick to 3M post-it because it is most reliable. The stickiness is just about right, i.e. you won't have difficulty tearing the paper off the pad and it remain sticky after moving it around for a few times. For those cheaper ones, sometimes they just fall off after using it just once!
Summary: A must-have in office and maybe household as well
