3M Post-it Note Pads
Advantages: Useful, easy to use
I have an office at home which is where I can usually be found when either not in my work's office, with the horses, with my daughter or cleaning! So generally I am there till the early hours getting up to speed with things. I suffer with OCD and therefore I like everything to be highly organised and tidy. This to me doesn't just mean cleanliness it also means that I like to prioritise my work load which happens in the forms of lists, notes etc.
One item that I use on a daily basis are Post It Notes and generally in the pad format and my current range is the 3M Post It Note Pads Ultra Collection. There are many varieties of Post It Notes in what seems like all shapes, sizes and colours. I can however remember when you could only get the original yellow notes which seemed to be an office staple product and your desk didn't look complete without them.
Post It Notes are made by a company called 3M and they produce a wide range of products. They do however advise that they only use SFI Chain of Custody Certified paper meaning that they only use paper for their notes from well managed forests as well as all their Post It Notes are recyclable which for me is quite important as I do like to recyclable.
I think we all have seen Post It Notes before and most of us have probably used them. They are not the most inventive of products but they are an incredibly useful product. Post It Notes if not familiar with them are little cubes or varying shapes of single sheets of paper piled up on top of each other with a sticky strip at one end. This sticky strip can be attached to most surfaces and will stay in replace for a reasonable amount of time. The pads can come in varying sizes, shapes and colours so there is quite a lot of choice!
I as said above currently have the Ultra Collection in the 3 inch by 3 inch size as I find this size is the most handy for writing notes in my office and generally attaching them to my laptop screen so I will remember what needs doing! The Ultra Collection is made up of individual pads in a bright apple green, pink, purple and blue and are definitely noticeable and certainly stand out against my boring buff coloured files which makes them ideal for me. Each pad is made up of 100 sheets which for me last for quite a considerable time making the pack last quite long.
The notes are easy to remove from one another and they do the job just as I need them. They manage to keep my work load organised as well as leaving notes in my daughter's nursery take home book and small shopping lists for my other half. Yes, for what they are technically small bits of paper which stick to things but they do actually make life a bit simpler especially if you like everything organised or are in need of being more organised.
There are a whole range of Post It Notes which offer something for everyone wanting to be organised. For me the 3 inch by 3 inch are ideal for me and for my needs and I can't fault them at all. They come apart easily and do the job that they are intended for. No complaints from me whatsoever and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to be organised! 5 stars from me.
