What is a a good macOS app for jotting notes?

For my writing, I use Ulysses which is dope, but sometimes I just want to "jot" a quick, *temporary* note - something Ulysses is not well-suited for. What I find is that my important writing becomes drowned in a bunch of notes I shouldn't have saved in the first place. What is a simple, light-weight note-taking app I can use for temporary note-taking?
