One thing I’ve come to rely on, quite heavily, has become a great tool for staying organized: Post-it(R) Notes. I picked up a huge package of these colored beauties at Sam’s Club about 6 months ago–just the small ones (1.5″ X 2″).
I keep a pad on my computer desk, right above my slide-out keyboard. As I play Scrabble(R) over at Facebook, I make notes about possible moves and the points they are worth. When a Note gets filled, I simply throw it away. When I think of something I need to do, like write a Thank-You note, I jot it down. Sometimes I’ll have three things to-do on one note–as I do them I cross them off, and after the last one, I toss the Note.
I use them for bookmarks in my journals, my writing spirals, my Weaver Volumes, and even the hymnal. The bright colors make them easy to see, and they have just the right amount of stickiness to keep them in place.
Small, but indispesible. I love them!
