I always keep Velcro strips and dots on hand because they're very handy to keep track of things that get misplaced easily.
Because it's temporary, there's no fear about making future changes. Just make sure the surface you use the Velcro on won't get damaged by the glue.

My dsl modem is light weight and small and falls over easily. I velcro it to the "wall" of my desk. It keeps it upright.
I have a pen velcroed to the side of the monitor of our computer. I usually have scrap paper at the ready, but the pen right there is great to have, I dont' have to get up to put it back, but if I am on the computer and thing of something, I just jot my idea down and hang it on the file cabinet until I finish what I am doing.
I put Velcro on the bottom of my computer keyboard and on top of the monitor so I can get real estate on my desk if I need to sort papers, etc. Might not work with flat screens, but great for TV-like monitors.
Thanks for the ideas! I've been meaning to keep a notepad in the kitchen, but w/o more cluttering up of countertops. Your thoughts just now led me to place a self-stick hook on the side of the center island, loop a piece of raffia through 3 of the pad's coil's (I used the bottom 3), & hung my notepad down from the hook. Now, if the cats don't play with it, I can just bring it to the countertop anytime I want, then let the pad hang down again.
