Octopad delivers a reusable sticky note for ephemeral permanence

OctopadSticky notes are a great way to leave reminders, passive aggressive notes and to-do lists around the house. The only problem is that they’re disposable and bad for the environment. The Octopad offers little notepads that stick to surfaces and are reusable. They’re mini dry erase boards that are able to travel, much like the Stick On Whiteboard and the Zipboard Roll-Up Travel Whiteboard that offer the convenience of a whiteboard with the portability of a notepad. For five-pack, backers can donate £8 for this British product with an estimated delivery date of September 2014. Octopad hopes to raise £4,500 in a 35-day Kickstarter campaign.


To Do Fridge Magnets help you stick to your schedule

Day Fridge MagnetsIn many homes, the refrigerator is not just the tall appliance for keeping food cold; it’s also a canopy of sorts for displaying kids’ artwork, photos, messages and other reminders. All of this is enabled via the power of magnets, a sign of the gods’ magic of that is beyond our puny human minds. Project creator Aaron Chan hopes to tap into this force, though, for the menial purpose of keeping our lives in order with large (3″ x 6″) To Do Fridge Magnets. One nice benefit of the modular day system is that you need only display the days when you have something critical going on as the whole set will take up a fair amount of refrigerator real estate. Chan has skipped a video for his “simple project” and taken the unusual step of putting limited quantities in all pricing tiers. Of course, if you’re interested in a very limited quantity, you can pick up some magnetic paper for your inkjet printer and print them yourself.
