Organization = Life Simplified

Dry Erase Love
(meal planning…SIMPLIFIED)

Dry Erase...its like the greatest thing EVER invented.  I mean seriously...who doesn't love it?  Its a board that you can write on and wipe off of endlessly.  There is NO waste involved what-so-ever.  See!  It's even ECO friendly.  Sooo many reasons to love dry erase boards.  My reason for loving THIS dry erase board is because it makes it easy for me to plan our weekly meals...and if something changes (as it always seems to) I can just wipe it off and write in the "update" to our menu.  SO SIMPLE!  I don't have to print out a new menu sheet or have to deal with cross outs (I'm fairly anal about things like that).  Its like whatever was there before never. even. existed!  Sah-weet!

I know that everyone loves to make printouts to help keep themselves organized and I'm all up in that too but I found that I never really "did" print out that menu planner that I created.  I was always writing it on a sticky note and slapping it on the fridge and then it would fall off and slide under the fridge.  I got kind of tired of getting down on my hands and knees and looking under the fridge to see what was on the dinner menu for Thursday night.  It wasn't fun people.  And lets face knees aren't as young as they used to be so that tile floor was getting a bit hard for me to handle.  

So the other day when I was wandering around Target all by my lonesome, I found myself wandering down the calendar isle (I have a mild addiction to day planners...but that's a whole different story).  When out of the corner of my eye, I spy this.

I knew in an instant that it was meant to be mine.  We were destined to be one.  Love at first site.  I will not lie, the first thing that caught my attention was the pink and the red of it all.
The 2nd thing that caught my eye...the price tag!  For $6.99 I could own this little piece of pink, red and white dry erase heaven AND it comes with a pad of paper for me to stick on the fridge next to it or under it or wherever I want to keep track of the grocery items that I need!  SCORE!  Dry erase AND a pad of paper...its a total win / win in my book! 

Just check it out in it's new home...

Maybe it's because love is in the air with Valentines Day coming and all but there was just something about the pink and red flowers that drew me in.  Are you feeling the love too??



  1. Love 'tarjay'!! This is just what I'm thinking about today...organization! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great find! I use the neon dry erase markers to write notes and lists on my microwave. They would work great to write directly on the fridge too! (My fridge is wood, so no go there for me, but the microwave is a great spot to write notes since I use it all the time! :)

    1. I love the neon dry erase markers!
