The sticky note – most widely used for passing on short messages or reminders. They can often be found at the top of a large pile of paperwork, stuck to the fridge or on the back of an unsuspecting office worker.
We’ve come up with a few alternative ways to make the most of your sticky notes….

Lean back as much as you like as you take a bite out of that delicious, chocolaty piece of yumminess, rogue crumbs will still find their way onto your keyboard. It’s what they do. Before you blow them away or brush them off, risking them falling in through the gaps, forever trapped, you could try picking them up with a sticky note.
Where do you get your inspiration from? Perhaps you read a book, blog or news article that made you feel motivated and empowered?
