Smartphones are great for a variety of tasks, but for taking notes, nothing beats good old-fashioned pen and paper. Pen and paper don’t need batteries, special styluses, etc. My favorite notebooks are small pocket sized offerings from Field Notes and Moleskine. I even made my own leather pocket notebook holder from leather which I use every day. But being the stationary geek that I am, I can’t help but love the idea of using an ordinary pad of Post-it Notes as my daily tasks notebook. The NoteShel is a refillable Post-it Note holder that effectively turns a pad of the standard 3″ x 5″ sticky notes into a full-fledged notebook with a cover and pen that attaches to the holder with magnets. The Note Shel features a sturdy rubber casing that is available in five colors which protects the Post-it Note stack from getting dog-eared in your pocket. The Note Shel is priced at $19.99 through Amazon which I think is way too expensive, but if you’re interested in learning more, go to Noteshel.com.
