ORGANIZE YOUR POST-ITS {Teacher Tip #7}

As seen on my current to do list above:Plan Back-to-School lesson plans
Update my Teaching Procedures & Routines manual for my classroom aide
Copy my Writer's Idea Banks for 1st week (I LOVE these!!!)
Copy applicable pages from my Parent/Teach Conference Packet for Curriculum Night
Copy Judy Moody and First Day Jitters activities for the 1st week of school.
Laminate and Cut Spelling Centers to use with any word list.
Create the Mystery Reader Sign-Up Book for Curriculum Night
Raise your hand if you heart Post-Its? I love-love them!

I love the colors. I loved the way they stick and unstick. I use them for oodles of purposes. However, I found that I was often jotting down "to dos" and then never doing those things because they were stuck in random places. When I created my new teacher binder for the upcoming school year, I decided to finally put an end to the post its surrounding my computer monitor fiasco which made me feel not-so-Clutter-Free.

Check out the video to see how I solved the problem:

This product featured above includes 8 different templates for teacher to help organize and manage all those little post-it notes. They can be used as is, laminated, hung on a wall, inserted into page protectors in a teacher binder or frames and placed on your desk. They are part of my Blackline Design Product Collection so they look fantastic when copied/printed onto colored cardstock.

  6. What a great idea! I am always losing post-its! My students once counted I had 17 packs of them lying around the classroom. :) Thanks so much for the freebie.

  10. This is fantastic! However, I've been trying to access today's awesome freebie, and it's not showing up as free. Am I missing a super secret link?

  11. I'm sad I missed out on this freebie because I don't get the emails until later in the day. I'm working summer camp so google reader had to wait until now. You have great ideas! Can't wait to read about math workshop.

  12. I totally agree about being sad that I missed it too! For some reason my e-mail connected to this page doesn't come until a lot later. I checked the website early this morning and didn't make it back to my computer until it was too late. :(

  15. I love this idea! Great way to get and stay organized.

    Can you make your flash freebies a little longer? Some of us can't access blogs during your 8am-12pm time you posted today. =(

  16. Soooo sad I didn't get to this freebie in time! The blog subscription email doesn't come soon enough :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. I just got the email too and the freebie is already gone. Darn.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't even gotten my email yet :( and the freebie is already gone. So very sad! I'm subscribed to your blog and to your store.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My email just got this at 4:45pm. I don't know why things don't appear until much later than you post. I totally missed it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love the idea.

    Wish I would have gotten my email earlier. It just came through. Is TpT supposed to notify when something new is posted? I am not getting that email at all. Guess I need to go check my settings. :(

    1. Usually TpT sends out an email to me after the blog update email. I haven't got that one yet tonight. I guess we are going to have to check the blog at breakfast.

  21. Hi,
    Love your post-it organizational tips. Thanks for the video. Unfortunately, I missed the flash freebie. I'm on Eastern Standard time and received your e-mail at 6:32 p.m. I'm a follower, but did not receive notification of the freebie until after it was no longer a freebie. If possible, please send a copy to my e-mail address.

    Many thanks for sharing your time and talent,

  22. Yeah, I was sad I missed it too, and I just got the email a few minutes ago. I do have it on my wish list now though!

  23. So sad I missed the Freebie. The email didn't come through to my email account until 6:30pm.

    Thanks for all your amazing ideas!

  24. I didn't get the update email in time to get the Freebie, either. Can you make the flash freebies not so flashy? Tee hee.. by that I mean to make the sale last a little longer so those of us who get the email update later in the day can also have access? Thanks!

  25. I'm having the same problem with the emails. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and ideas, but have missed out on several because I'm not receiving the email notification before the deadline is up. I love the Post-It organizers!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who missed this. I didn't get the email until three hours after it expired. So bummed out!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. My email update didn't come through until 7:34pm, Eastern Time! What a bummer! :( Would still love the freebie if you are feeling generous :)

    1. Mine did the same thing! I've been snagging each of these awesome flash freebies and am *so* bummed that I missed this one, especially since I'm wanting to do the post-it planner this year.

  28. I got the email from Clutter-Free at 6:32 pm (CST) and I still have not gotten the email from TPT! So strange! "The Clutter-Free Lady" as my students call her has been SOOO generous that I will go ahead and just purchase the packet! This packet is AMAZING! :) I do hope though that we can figure out what has gone wrong on the notification! :)

  29. Another person who did not receive the email until 6p.m. central time, and never received an update from TPT. So sad...this is one I would use!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I subscribed to the freebies from the blog. I check my email as soon as I hear the notification ringtone on my phone and the item is no longer a freebie. Can anyone please advise as I have missed a few but missing the stick note one was disappointing.

  31. These are super cute. I've added them to my wishlist.

  33. I was often jotting down "to dos" and then never doing those things because they were stuck in random places.
