We've all been there. You're sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office, thumbing through a magazine & you come across something useful that you want to refer back to later, perhaps when you get home. It could be the name of a website, a tasty recipe, an organizational tip, or how to get mustard stains out. Here's a simple tip you can use to recall the info later.
Keep a pack of Post-it notes in your purse and when you pick up a magazine that looks interesting, stick a post-it note to the front of it. This way, you'll be able to quickly jot down a website name, a short recipe, etc. and you will not have to dig through your purse looking for something to write on. You could also just jot down the website address to the magazine itself & perhaps find the article/recipe on their website, but this doesn't work in all cases.
Sometimes if the magazine is an older issue, they don't mind you taking it home, but you must ask, of course. This is great when the whole magazine is filled with lots of good info.
Other times, you can ask the receptionist to make a copy of the page for you. Depending on how nice they are, they usually don't mind as long as they're not busy.
So go now & put that pack of Post-it notes in your purse!
