The working world as we know it would cease to exist without the use of these 3 x 3 yellow squares of magic. I know I’m not alone when I say that my desk and computer monitor are oftentimes completely covered in cheery little Post-it reminders (more often than not to-do’s that I am dreading or putting off until 4 p.m. on a Friday afternoon!) However, Post-its can and do have a life outside of the office — below are some of its more creative uses.

A simple “thinking of you” or “have a great day” greeting is my hands-down favorite use of Post-it notes. There’s no easier way to put a smile on someone’s face!
