What can possibly be said about post it notes that has not already been said. Not much, but at 600dms (No, not Deutsche marks) for a category 1 review, I'd better find something, eh?
People are disorganised. That's just how we roll. As a direct result, we buy notebooks and calendars, we tap away alarms and reminders in our smart phones. Our outlook directories are subdivided and classified, and still it's not enough.
Post it notes are little bits of coloured paper with a sticky strip on the reverse. They are great not only for reminders for yourself, but are a good way of leaving messages for other people. They come in a varying degree of sizes, shapes and colours, including some truly eye watering fluorescent ones.
They are great for sticking to laptops, tables and cubicle windows in the office. "Call so and so" or "I came to see you but you weren't here please call xxxx when back", to "Printer offline. Xerox called. Now to be known as Bob Marley, as it's always Jamming"
But their usefulness does not stop there. They are equally good at sticking to fridges, counters or consoles about the house. You can leave messages for your spouse or offspring, and they can do the same. No longer do you have to wait for the wife to finish watching Corrie before finding out which plate in the oven is yours.
Post it notes were created by Art Fry. Although he sounds like a character from Futurama, he was a researcher for the company 3M. He didn't invent the adhesive, a colleague did, but he did come up with the concept. You'd think this would have made him incredibly rich. But as an employee, neither man received ANY royalties.
You can buy a pack of 450 sheets for a fiver. That works out at just over one penny a sheet, and that pack will last quite awhile.
