The other day I stumbled across an old blog from Martin Schapendonk called How to Stick a Sticky Note and discovered we’ve been using Post-It notes wrong all this time.
Apparently, you’re not supposed to pull the Post-It off the stack with the sticky side at the top, but rather with the sticky stuff on the side. Pulling them with the adhesive at the top makes them curl up and fall off everything. This doesn’t happen when you pull them with the adhesive at the side.
We took some pictures to show you the trick. The black line represents where the adhesive is on the Post-it note.

Mind = blown.
