The board wasn't working initially when summer camp began since Mike wasn't remembering to check the Remember Board! After beating him up a bit (well, not really), he finally got into a habit of checking it before bolting out the door. Now it works like a charm & keeps me from needing to text him daily morning reminders. I update the board every Sunday based on the school calendar & what is needed each day. I use the push pin side to list our weekly menu which keeps us eating healthier & saving money since I try & maximize ingredients.
We don't have a huge area off our garage/laundry room, but I did the best I could with what I had. The shelving unit is from IKEA & we just screwed in hooks on each side & a filing system/magazine rack (also from IKEA) on the one side.
The turquoise, silver & white board you see above is a magnet board from IKEA that I spray painted with a strip of masking tape down the center.
In this same area, we have a door that leads to nowhere, aka A/C ducts, so I picked up a super inexpensive over-the-door shoe rack from Dollar General to use as a school supply holder.
I also grabbed this bin from Dollar General to use as a daily homework caddy for any essentials Cameron needs to work on homework such as pencils, colored pencils, crayons, etc. Thus far, I only have a binder with wide-ruled paper since I'm waiting to see what he often uses when he starts kindergarten.
