Right - let's get one thing clear before we start - I have a memory like a sieve! Sadly as I get older it gets worse too but I am trying to ignore that for now.
So what do you do if you have a bad memory and need to remember something REALLY important? You write yourself a note of course! What if you put the note down and don't notice it in time for it to remind you of the important event? Then you need Post It Notes!
I am guessing that everyone reading this review knows what a Post It Note looks like but I'll briefly explain for the sake of completeness.
A Post It Note is a small sheet of paper on which you write a note in order to remind yourself or someone else of something you don't want to forget. The notes come in pads - one piece of paper on top of another - and as you peel off the piece of paper upon which you have just written you will notice that, across the top, is a strip of adhesive. This means that the note can now be stuck to any one of a variety of smooth surfaces.
Initially the Post It Notes were bright yellow and measured 76mm square. Boy how they have changed over the years! You can now get the original ones of course but they also now come in a range of pastel and fluorescent colours (you are not going to miss those now are you?). They also come in larger rectangles and also very small rectangles.
I have seen them shaped like hearts, speech bubbles, arrows, flowers and Tetris style blocks to name but a few. The other design that I have seen is where the Post It Notes are thin and rectangular and come in a container which sits on your desk. These are for sticking on the edge of pages that you need to mark.
So Post It Notes have definitely come a long way since the bright yellow squares!
As for the price these days - a pack of six standard sized pads of 100 sheets per pad will cost your about £6 - £7 on Amazon. The unusual shapes are obviously dearer.
I tend to use mine if there is something that I really cannot afford to forget. I write myself a Post It Note and then stick it somewhere that I will definitely see it - such as on the front door as I am about to leave the house, on the lid of my laptop which I use every day, on one of the drinks mats on the coffee table in the lounge - you get the general idea. When the task has been completed the Post It Note then goes into our log burner as a bit of extra fuel!
I love my Post It Notes and use them on a regular basis - I even had some of the nice coloured ones in with my Christmas presents a couple of years ago!
Summary: I couldn't do without them!
