I’m a big fan of sticky notes. And white boards. In my home office, kitchen, and around the house they are all life savers. I used to put sticky notes on the bottom of my computer screen, but t hey would always fall off, so I would end up having to tape them on…it looked pretty bad. We have two white boards in our home, they’re both big – one’s a calendar in the kitchen and one’s a to-do list in our office. Thankfully, I’ve found the best of both worlds – RE:writes from It’s Academic. The best way I can describe RE:writes is as white board sticky notes! They come in multiple sizes and colors and are totally removable and reusable.
We’ve been using them around the house in various ways – I’ve got a menu up on the refridgerator that I can keep notes on with things to add to the grocery list. Rather than sticky notes falling off my computer screen I have put a RE:write on one of the corner edges that I can easily add and remove little reminder notes to myself. RE:writes come with a dry erase marker that also grips onto any surface.
Another fun way we’ve used RE:writes is for my oldest daughter, Emma. I’ve found that during the summer I don’t hear “I’m bored” as often as when I give her a to-do list. It’s nothing scary, it’s just a list of things she needs to do everyday to be productive and not be so lazy. Until we started using RE:writes, we were just making her a daily list on a pieces of paper and taping it up on her door and she could just cross off the things that she completed throughout the day (it’s also a good motivator for her to get things crossed off, there’s something about visual recognition of finishing tasks). Now that we’ve put a RE:writes on her door, I’m not wasting paper or tape and she thinks it’s a lot more fun, too.
One of the really neat things about RE:writes is that they’ll always be reusable. You might think that over time they’d lose their tackiness on the back, but according to the instructions, if the RE:writes seem to be losing stickiness, just clean the back surface with water and let dry to start using like new again! Plus, there’s no glue or tape or any kind of adhesive on these so they’re perfectly safe to use on nearly any surface with no damage done. Believe me, I wouldn’t put anything on my iMac that would ruin it!
You can find RE:writes at stores like Walmart, Walgreens, RiteAid, Meier, and Office Max with a starting price of $4.99. Be sure to follow RE:writes on Facebook Twitter, and Pinterest to stay up-to-date on new products, promotions, coupons, new retailer, and see how others are using RE:writes (someone on their Facebook page posted a picture of emergency numbers on the inside of a cabinet!).
