I love finding new items to add to the house and this was actually an unwanted present that was given to my Mum (read my top tips for unwanted presents here). She thought it was useless; I had to disagree! I am a massive fan of stationery (notebooks, pads, chalkboards, cork board), you name it and I probably have it.
If you need to quickly scribble down some notes or a food shopping list, or even household chores for your housemate/partner, then it is perfect. Simply write on and wipe off when completed.
