WFMW - Giant Post-it



Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer is hosting Works For Me Wednesdays as usual. So far a few hundred tips have been posted. After you read what works for me, head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more tips!

A few days ago I realized we were finally to a point in our house flip, that we needed to have a list of everything that was left to accomplish. We had a bunch of little things that needed to get caulked or painted and we had a long long list of things that needed to be cleaned, ready for the new owners.

I gathered up my Sharpies, Post-It Pad, husband, our carpenter and the electrician and we proceeded to write out the list.

The Post-It pad is on a cardboard easel (if you choose to use it that way) that measures, 20" x 23" and has a sticky strip at the top of the paper, so it can stick just a like a Post-It...it's just giant.

I use these giant Post-Its when I am cleaning my rental condos. I write out my tasks and put the sheet up on the side of the fridge and mark off the tasks as I go along.

These are just great for large projects when the TO-DO list is large.

My tip - go to your local office supply store and pick up an easel pad (I prefer the Post-It one) and use this for large projects, maybe a packing list for that big vacation, or use the large pad for getting your Thanksgiving dinner together without missing a single ingredient.

The Giant Post-It ad works for me. I hope it works for you!

Have a great day!

What a great idea - I like to keep a list for each room when I am doing my 'deep' cleaning at home. I'll have to try this :)

Those are neat! I am a huge list maker, and it would be great to be able to keep one posted like that.

Great use for these. I remember using one as a black board in my house when i was teaching geometry to some youngsters. Had these things up all over my dining room. But no chalk to clean up and they rolled up nicely to go home with the kids so they didn't have to take so many notes.

great tip.
