Are Your Bombarded by Post-its on Your Work Desk?

I LOVE post-its *laughs* and I write almost everything down on post-its and stick them everywhere on my work desk so as to make sure that I don't forget to do something at work. I find the method quite effective and eye-catching. What about you?

i can't put post-its on my work desk because my boss doesn't like messy tables. she want everything to be organized. i put my reminders on small sheets of my papers and put them inside my drawer. i always open my drawer so i don't have a problem of forgetting it. and i usually do the reminder immediately so as to avoid the possibility of forgetting it.

Sometimes post-it notes get unsticky and fall off, but I still like them. However for important things I use a program called Notezilla which is like sticky notes only interactive on the computer desktop. I am quite dependent on it as it is a powerful and kewl tool.

Sounds interesting. The program sounds nice, but these days, I have been trying to stay away from the computer at home (unless I am on holidays or weekends), so I still use post-its at home. But at work, I sit in front of the computer all day and I think the program could be useful.

That's a good method. I used to do the same in the past. Now it's a little bit different. I try to keep it in mind. Or I will write down in the notebook. If I have to write a note to my colleagues, usually I tend to send them message in MSN. Post-its is made from paper, and I don't want to waste more paper. I like to do something to protect the environment:)

Hm, that's very true! I try doing my post-its less now due to the protection of the environment. Usually I remember what I have to do, but I am just not that sure when my memories will pop into my mind.

The job I left last year in February had a complicated computer system. There were so many steps to do everything, so I would bug someone, find out the steps, and then post them on the wall in front of my desk. By the time I left, the entire poster board wall was filled. I wonder if the next person found them useful or took them all down. They were purple and yellow (those are the colors they ordered). So the entire wall was purple and yellow. Take care

We only have yellow here, so actually my desk at work is bombarded by all the yellow little notes!

i am not into post ots only if its reall that important. i usually am a note person and i rely mainly on my notebook for reminders. i find it more organized than post it. if there are too many post its then i do not know where to start and i usually just ignore them.

Maybe I am just not that organized! I am totally the opposite, I won't even look at my notebook if I write something there!

Before, I am a fan of post-its. But when my bunch of post-its were all lost, I didn't even mind buying new ones. I just use some cut-outs and extra sheets on my desk. I also use the notepad in remembering the things I should be doing.

Hello wondericequeen, Nowadays, I have a lot! I just can't remember all the things to do within a day. I am really busy and it really helps. Sometimes, I will use it at home too. Just to remember what things to buy or what important things to do during the weekends. I am getting more forgetful nowadays. Old age, maybe?
