Here’s a fun little freebie:
Go to Post-it® Perks and register for a free sample of their sortable cards. These are index cards that will easily stick to surfaces but not to each other. (Like magic!) Jot down a recipe, then—while trying to cook it with children and animals underfoot and homework and dirty dishes and mixing bowls on the counter—stick it to a high cupboard door (away from little fingers) so you don’t lose track of it.
Or whatever. I don’t need to know what weird things you plan to do with your sortable cards. They’re free, so go nuts.
