Post-it notes are so versatile! Have you ever seen a Post It note watch? Are you post-it note obsessed? I always have a pack of them on my desk, a few used post-it to do lists in my bag, and as a teacher I couldn’t live with out them. Do you have any post-it note tricks, tips, uses, or crafts I need to check out? I’d love to hear…

Absolutely *love* these ideas. I was delighted to discover, during the ‘Creative Management’ module of my MBA, that post-it notes are a legitimate business management tool !! That was the best news ever and I felt vindicated for all the time I had spent scribbling on post-its and sticking them everywhere – office, desk, journal, food in the fridge (labelled with days of the week it would be eaten), as bookmarks – you name it. Very clever how they originated too, from a mistake made by 3M when they manufactured a ‘non-sticky’ glue. They must be amazed at the way the whole ‘post-it’ craze took off, and the huge amount of uses creative people are finding for their product.
I am a teacher and use post-its in lots of ways. I get students to write their own question on the front and their name on the back. We stick them all up on the wall. Then students select someone elses post-it. They answer the question in their book and then go and check the answer with the author of the note. It allows stusents to work at their own pace and have instant feedback, I have 30 ready-made questions by rhe end of the activity. Students enjoy checking each others work too.

My own journal looks just like the Planner/ Journal pic you’ve posted. I love Post-Its, and carry them everywhere. They’re perfect to jot inspirations and ideas, as well as tasks and reminders.
I stick Post-Its onto a sliding door in my office (the door’s behind me so it doesn’t distract me); it’s my Idea Board/ Wall. The Super Sticky Post-Its are ideal for this.
I think I’m addicted…
These are all awesome! I especially like the pinata! LOL 🙂
