Today's family is always on the go, and communication can be tough. Even if you have only yourself to worry about and organize, a calendar and marker board can help keep track of important bills, reminders and notes in general. If you are running a business, a marker board can be a handy place to announce specials, write up menus or to give directions to workers.
The Dry Erase Calendar
A reusable calendar board can be a handy way to keep everyone on the same page. If everyone writes their appointments, work schedule and other important dates on the calendar, it will be easier to schedule transportation and to iron out conflicts. It can be a real challenge sometimes to get everyone to where they need to be on time.
Announcements, Rules and Chore Checklists
Set up a permanent list of family chores on a wall-mounted dry erase marker board and ask everyone to initial when they have accomplished a chore. Take a picture of the board with a tablet or cell phone, and keep track of accomplishments. Use a special board to announce birthdays, graduations, awards and more. Write the house rules on a tastefully decorated board, such as the one listed below that has the permanent message, “In Our House We…”
Tame the Paper Notes
It seems as if every home has a snowstorm of paper. Notes from school, notes from work, bills to pay, and more. You can use either a magnet board or an old-fashion pinboard to keep those important papers in a location where they don’t shuffle under the armoire or into the kitty litter box (ew!). A combination bulletin board, dry erase board and letter holder can make life a whole lot easier whether you are a household of one or one hundred and one. The kind of decorative dry erase board that will work best for you depends upon your household or business size, who is going to be using it, and the kind of things that you need to write on it. Calendars are great for scheduling, for example, but a blank board is better for writing down menus, chore lists, or rules. And don’t forget to have one or two just fun little boards that you can use to display artworks or a friendly message for when someone is having a rough day.
