I am a very visual person. If I see something, I remember it. Likewise, if I write something down on a checklist, I'm more apt to do it. I've been working off a menu for a while and wanted a cleaner way to see it (the papers stuck to a magnet on the side of my fridge was becoming an eye sore). So, I saw this online somewhere and modified it to what I wanted.
Meet, my menu board.
An 8 1/2 by 11 inch picture frame (use any size you like. I wanted white and this was on sale at Michaels, I really wanted a 12X12 frame, but they didn't have them in white. I'm COMPLETELY happy with this size though).
These frames were $5 a piece
I purchased some black vinyl and my friend used her cricut machine to cut out vinyl letters for me (cost $6.50 with Michaels coupon plus I only used an eency bit of the vinyl. I have lots left.)
(mind you that says chicken and salad not chicken salad with rice-a-roni, thats home made chicken pot pie and home made salmon fish sticks, Don't get all grossed out by my menu by thinking of the store-bought versions, okay? hahaha)
I also write next to mine another chore and underline it. This is the chore Dominic is expected to do on that day. Since its written down, I've had ZERO complaints from him..... its like magic.
So, drumroll please.
I have an extra menu board.
Please leave a comment and tell me how I know you (I will include comments in my printed version of my blog so now I'll have a record of who you are and how I know you).
If I don't know you, just tell me that. =)
I will use random.org to draw a name from the entries and one person will win my extra menu board (blank, you have to add the paper).
Contest ends Friday, November 12th at 10pm PST and will be announced on my blog.
Are you excited? Read, set....GO!
