I am a visual person. I like to see things….touch and feel them. This is good and bad. For example, I love Post-it notes. At work, if there is something that I want to be regularly reminded of, I just write it on a Post-it note and stick it on the wall. Currently I have about 7 notes on my wall. That is the bad part. Having a bunch of Post-it notes are not the most attractive wall décor. Of course, I could do all of this digitally. I am aware of that. But there is just something about paper that I love…..I think that comes from the writer in me.
I really met my match when I discovered the Tabletop Post-it Pads. These pads are the greatest… and I enjoy using them. Because I teach classes at work, they are helpful when discussing ideas and planning activities. But now, I have started using them at home to help me keep track of all of my Ebay responsibilities. Of course, any old sheet of paper will do – but you can’t beat the fact that you write down you listing goals, sourcing locations, research needs and to-do list all on one super-size 20x23 sheet of paper. What do you do next – tear it off the pad and stick it to the wall. I just consider it my way of keeping myself accountable and on track. Anytime I walk by my ebay storage room and see that Jumbo Post-it……..I know exactly where I stand with my goals for the week or month.
With all of my mom duties, work duties, and family duties…..I have a lot to keep up with. Truthfully, all of those other things generally come before Ebay. As a result, it can be hard to keep the sourcing, researching and listing going….but I am determined. And these Post-it Tabletop Easel Pads are just one of the old school tools in my toolbox – LOL. Maybe you should try them out!
