It seems pretty straightforward, but apparently, we’ve been using post-it notes the wrong way.
Instead of jotting something down and peeling the note upwards, we should be peeling it off horizontally.
As Lifehacker points out: "Most of us peel sticky notes from the bottom, but that ends up making the notes curl where the adhesive is."
Instead, "Start at the left of the pad and pull the note to the right (or vice versa). Voila, a flat-lying note."
