Lists are fun aren't they? While Sian and I were away in Amsterdam last weekend we managed to cover a few of the essential lists: favourite carbs, favourite roasts, favourite fruits. If we'd only been there for longer, who knows what else we'd have got pegged down? Lists are also useful: I govern my life by a to-do list, and couldn't imagine how I'd cope with a trip to the supermarket if I didn't have a shopping list to hand. That's probably why I loved this simple but cunning invention when I saw it over at Swiss Miss.
It's a steel wall-mountable ongoing to-do list. Using the pencil provided, simply scrawl down what you need to get from the shops OR who you need to buy a present for OR your top five power ballads as the inspiration strikes and then tear off your list using the jagged edge at the bottom of the mount. No more scrabbling round for scraps of paper or mucking up pretty notebooks with mundanities, just write, tear and be on your merry way.
It costs £25.10 from Made In Design. Suitable for adding to birthday lists too.
