My Green Post it Note Obsession

I am addicted to Post-It Notes. I used to work at a company called SIRS Mandarin, now ProQuest. And I would pop down to the office supply area every other day asking for more Post-Its.

The manager would say, "Are you writing novels on the Post-Its?"

Mwa-ha-ha. No. It is just that I love to stick them EVERYWHERE as reminders and to-do lists. In fact, I have Post-It notes on my calendar (seems redundant) telling me what products I want to buzz about and birthdays to remember and birthday present ideas. (Why don't I just use Because then I would have to give up my Post-it Note Addiction.)

Feeding my addiction are the Greener Post-it Notes, made with recycled paper. They look and feel just like regular Post-its! I received a pack of Super Sticky notes, 3 x 3" and 4 x 6", which you can stick practically anywhere. And then I received recycled Post-its with regular sticky levels, also available in a 3x3" and 4 x 6" size. Here is some cool info on the Post-Its:
