We were having a difficult time with our very busy refrigerator, trying to find the grocery list. In addition I had already taken over the dry wipe board to keep a list of the pantry items that are stored in the refrigerator and the freezer in hopes I would remember that I had them, and use them!
I decided to start looking for a new (if possible), dark wood frame at the various thrift stores I visit. I wanted to make a simple dry wipe board to use as a, groceries needed note pad. Yesterday I found a new document frame for 99 cents. Document frames are perfect, they hold a sheet of 8.5X11 paper. I was now in business.
I used a standard piece of printer paper, decided I wanted to hang the frame landscape style, then printed:
Take the frame apart, and clean the inside glass. Add the printed sheet, replaced any filler cardboard and the cardboard backing. Now I was ready to attache the hanging bracket, and not looking forward to working with those tiny nails!
Hang it up, any dry wipe pen will work. You simply write on the glass. The glass is easy to wipe clean. I think it is safe to say this grocer list will not get lost! This basic idea is very adaptable to your own families needs, have fun with it, you will be amazed what you can come up with.
Here are a couple more ideas,
