Organizing Product Review: Post-It Pockets

Posted By on February 9, 2011

The maker of those lovely Post-It Notes, 3M, has used their original creation as a jumping off point for a bigger, more diverse product called Post-It Pockets.

What it is: Plastic pockets that have adhesive on the back and can be fastened pretty much anywhere. The pockets, which come in three sizes, are tear-resistant and removable.

Why It’s Awesome: Use the pockets to store paper bills that need to be paid, coupons, RSVPs, tickets, or for school papers. You can label the outside with a label maker if you want. They’re plastic so they’re sturdier than paper pockets. A big plus is you can remove them and attach them somewhere else.

Drawbacks: The pockets are on the thin side, and there is only so much you can slip inside which forces you to clean out papers on a regular basis. I would like to see more variety in colors other than the beige and the pastel blue and purple. What can I say? I just love color. Another problem is that they’re not made of see-through plastic so you have to physically pull papers out to see what you have.

  1. Very disappointed. I waited over a week for the product to finally arrive. You absolutely cannot put anything in the pocket because it will fall off the wall. Once it comes off, it is gone. You cannot reattach it. I even tried to use the velcro type picture hangers by 3M and the pocket only stuck onto the wall for about 4 mins. I had about 10 envelopes and a few single sheets of paper which really didn’t weigh hardly anything. I think the weight of approx 6 single sheets of paper is about all it can withstand. I was under the impression that it could be reattached but I found that not to be the case at all. I paid as much for the shipping as the product so it is very distressing to think you are going to have a good product. I would suggest perhaps another strip down the center of the pocket and perhaps stronger material.
