For all you list makers:The Whiteboard Alternative

As a person with A.D.D., I cannot live without my list.  I have about 5 floating around at all times, and I like to keep a master list in big plain site too.  
In my new office I didn't want to add more clutter with a white board.  I had a big mirror hanging over my desk and a bunch of whiteboard markers, so I improvised.  
Works great, and much prettier than a whiteboard.  

The only downside is now whenever I look at the mirror to check my list, I can actually see the overwhelm on my face and that I really need to tweeze the brows- need to add that to the list.

We use this trick in our house all the time, our whole bathroom mirror is one long to-do/love note :) Your blog is my favorite of all the ones I follow, I just love the way your brain works. Not to mention how wonderfully productive you are :) Keep up the good work!

I made a "white board" for my kitchen in a similar manner. I used a big ugly framed print from Joann Fabrics drastically reduced. I wrapped the cardboard that is behind the print with a pretty fabric and popped it back into the frame. The glass (or plastic) works great for a write/wipe off surface with the markers. I also like that I can swap out the fabric whenever I want a new look!

Ah, just wait a few years. When you hit 57, you'll definitely need that list even more to remind you of things; BUT the upside is that you won't be able to see anymore so at least you won't notice that you need to pluck your eyebrows!
