We’ve Been Using Post-It Notes Wrong This Entire Time? [photos]

You probably used one today or at least somewhat recently. You probably wrote on the Post-It, grabbed the bottom and then just ripped it upwards off the stack to stick it somewhere, right?

Well it turns out, we’ve been doing it all wrong.

Apparently, you’re supposed to pull the Post-It off the stack not with the sticky side at the top, but on the side. There’s a reason Post-Its never seem to stick to anything and always curl up, and the reason is that you’re peeling it off incorrectly.

Confused?  Check out the ‘how to post it’ photos (HERE).   So what do you think?  Does it really make a difference?
