Chalk + Board
So, we've had this chalkboard since a few weeks after we moved to Nebraska for Law school. I used it next to my pantry in all 3 places we lived before moving here. I used it to keep track of groceries we ran out of.
Now that I have a smart phone, I keep a running grocery list in there, which works better because with this list I still had to transfer it to paper before heading off for the store. And my phone goes with me to the store where I can check off each thing, electronically, as I buy it.
Nowadays I use the chalkboard to keep a list of bigger chores that I need to remember to do that might get lost in day to day drama. I draw great big boxes to check off! Gotta love that sense of satisfaction. Especially when it says "scrub toilets!"
Since I love and have loved having a chalkboard all this time, I'm considering a chalkboard WALL. The wall you see it on...should I paint the whole thing with chalkboard paint? Will it be too dark? I think it would be really cute to have messages to each other or weekly menus featured there.
Let me know what you think!
