There are a couple interesting options when it comes to whiteboards.

There's adhesive backed rolls available. The biggest problem is getting a quality surface to put it on. The hardboard surface discussed below would be a great mounting surface.^1

If you're nostalgic for chalk boards they're available as peel and stick too. ^2 Scraping your fingernails across them doesn't sound like death cry on slate boards. Again, finding a good surface to put it on can be an issue.

4'x8' (32 square feet!!) hardboard sheets are cheap ($13) but not professional quality.^3 It's great for giving the kids a wall to write on!!



u/DrummerStp · 15 pointsr/DIY

Here’s one similar in size on amazon for $70:

I came up with cheaper solution that also hides the mounting points (if that matters to you). There’s very little construction involved.

Parts needed:

$29.99 x 1 - Glasholm: White glass table top from ikea (legs sold separately)

$1.90 x 2 - 16-Gauge 18-5/16 in. Retrofit Plate Strap

$0.60 x4 - M8-1.2 x 12 mm. Phillips Pan-Head Machine Screw

$2.46 x1 - 1/4 in. Zinc-Plated Flat Washer (25-Piece per Bag)

Links for materials:

White boards are crazy expensive, especially glass ones. There are plenty of cheap alternatives (white board paint, those cheap 4’x8’ white board hardboard panels from home depot), which are all well and good. But if you want something nice and don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, try this option.

It’s up to you how you hang the final product. I used some generic 50lb picture hangers (pictured). I had to put a couple washers in-between the picture hanger and the wall in order for the machine screws to clear.

To construct, you simply mount the plate strap to the mounting holes on the back of the glass ikea table top using the machine screws. You’ll need a couple washers to make it snug. I put straps top and bottom, but you can probably get away with just one. I’d still recommend putting in all four screws to keep the glass even with the wall.

Then use whatever mounting hardware you’d like. I went with simple 50 lb picture hangers. They worked great. I put two side by side. So essentially I got a 40” by 40” glass white board for around 80 bucks.

(Oh, and please excuse the blurry pictures. My iPhone stopped autofocusing, so it’s stuck at a certain focus depth which happens to be about a foot from the camera. So anything farther than that is blurry.)

edit: formatting and grammar

u/d4rch0n · 15 pointsr/lifehacks

I had one for a couple years that I got from craigslist for free. Offices are always getting rid of shit like that.

Alternatively, I actually think it's worth buying one if you rather have a nice framed whiteboard without spending hours of work making it look solid. You can easily spend a few hours crafting your own and it probably won't end up looking nearly as good as what you end up making. You get a nice perfect rectangle with a perfect frame and a little spot to hold markers. The effort it'd take to build that quality isn't worth saving $45 IMO.

Bought this one after my craigslist one got screwed up... for $60 I think it's worth it. It's a really good size and it's super solid and screws right into the wall with drywall screws and has a nice metal frame. It's about 4 times as much as that panel board but I think it's totally worth it. I'd rather have something that looks good framed in my office and is attached strongly to the wall.

Mine right now from amazon. It is a lot more clear than it looks there - I used photoshop smudge to hide some work stuff. Unless you're going huge and 4' x 3' isn't enough, I wouldn't bother considering making my own. Now, if it was between spending $600 on those massive ones, sure. But for $60?

u/roland00 · 13 pointsr/ADHD

ADHD people do not have a good verbal working memory. They can not remember things they need to do inside their head as a verbal list, like steps, 1, 2, 3, 4. You only use your verbal working memory on things you are not actively focusing on right now. The importance of your verbal working memory is to retain information in a temporary backup, while you do the things you are focusing on. You retain the information so when you are done with your primary thing your brain can access its working memory and now make a secondary item into a primary item.


Verbally asking you to remember all these things is asking a person who has to use a wheelchair to go up stairs. If your partner is doing that and is getting frustrated or passive aggressive than this is his or her own fault and not your own. Your are ADHD, you have a disorder, you are slightly disabled.

This is not to say you do not have responsibilities, instead we need to create an artificial prosthesis, an elevator, to deal with your disability.



You need to make this information visual and you need to interact with it in your environment.

  • Instead of telling you to do the dishes, write post it notes do the dishes, and put it on the bathroom mirror or if you want to be cute, put the post it note on your forehead.

  • Buy a whiteboard, buy three like this one and place it on your fridge, your door you leave the house, anywhere where you will see it.

  • If you are a person who uses the computer often and does not have a password to log into the computer, open up word and make it fullscreen and place the note in big letters do X, Y, and Z

  • Almost everyone has a smartphone today. With Android, iOS, and Windows Phone there are calendar apps where multiple people can enter information into the calendar (sometimes called group calendar). Google Calendar is one such thing. This person can set up calendar events and reminders that you receive via text message and/or email and you can even make them reoccurring.

    Another Way to help an ADHD person is to make an event have consequences. Our brain does not retain useless information in our verbal working memory. If something does not have immediate consequences then our brain does not store it in working memory, or if something else comes up our brain stores that in working memory instead and since your working memory is limited you "forget" the other piece of information.

    So you need to have consequences both positive and negative if you do not get your chores done. These do not have to be horrible like the consequences your parents have when you were 10, they can be fun like if you do not do chores for a week, you have to dress up like a french maid, with an apron and a hat and everything, and do housework all day on the weekend while making your partner iced teas, and giving them massages while they relax and watch tv, or do whatever they want.

    One thing that will help your brain is having immediate artificial consequences even if the real consequences are delayed. Aka a token economy. Having 3 chores that have to be done daily, and if you do not get those chores done you do not get a poker chip. If you have 5 poker chips at the end of the week you two do something fun in town, like going out to eat. Poker chips are reset every Sunday, so if you do not do chores 5 days out of every 7 days, you do not get the positive reward.

    Your brain can organize towards the poker chips, your brain understands the importance of chores and such. The problem is your brain thinks 30 other things are important, so if it does not have that physical reminder, that you interact with in your physical environment than you do not store this information in your faulty verbal working memory. If the information is not in your working memory then of course you can not do it. And if you do not make the event immediate, even if the immediacy is artifical you will always put the event off for everything else seems more important to you, everything else needs to be done now, dishes can wait.

These are the markers I use, and the paper is

That being said, I found both at a flea market for significantly less than the Amazon Prices, which are reasonable. Look at an Arts and Crafts store and you will probably find something similar for cheap.

u/norsethunders · 6 pointsr/lifehacks

What you really want are these, glass whiteboards. We got a bunch of them recently for our office, they're incredibly resistant to scratching and are basically impervious to staining!

u/xoriginal_usernamex · 6 pointsr/rutgers

Pretty sure they get left open but I could be wrong. Also if you're willing to drop the cash, something like this is pretty awesome to have in your dorm/apartment/house

u/orionz06 · 5 pointsr/pittsburgh

Be cautious, not all stainless is magnetic.

Doing a quick search did yield this item:

Not local but rather inexpensive.

u/kanemalakos · 4 pointsr/boardgames

Foamcore is generally what people use when making inserts for board games. It's easy to work with, glues together well, and looks pretty good, especially if you use a black color to hide any imperfections. You can check out a lot of different examples, tips and tricks over at r/foamcore.

u/icepyrox · 4 pointsr/XWingTMG

My friend bought 2 identical folding tables (24x48) next to each other. It used to be just one with a project board over it.

I had a friend who is a wood worker build me a table topper that folds in half and I lay it across one folding table. It provides a 37"x37" space for the game and 5" rail for cards. Based on this but no terrain/foam and simply add 1x6 (cut to 5") around the edge and then felt over the main area.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/photography

The third method is basically up to you. I can tell you from what I see, and what I am doing now, is simply one or two prints of each image. Size is completely up to you and usually based on the quality of the image of course. That is where you kinda play the game "will this sell at this size?". Usually, the bigger the better in the eyes of the consumer. If it is bigger, they will pay more, if it is smaller, they will pay less.

The third method is best used when you are attempting to grow your profit margin, as in the materials aren't to expensive if you do your shopping.

Here is a good idea of what it will cost you.

Elmers Foam Board 10 Pack of Black - $36.49 USD no shipping w/Prime

x-acto blade for Foam Boards - as low as 9 bucks, this is comes with 2 blades, and will last quite some time

Spray Adhesive - $6 cheaper in store

Cheap T-Square, nothing fancy needed - 4 bucks

Now, the T-Square, and Blade are products that can last a while. All Together you spend about $55 USD, at the swapper, for 8x10's, I saw prints going for $30 and they were selling.

You almost made your money back in one sell.

u/insouciantelle · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

For what it's worth, here's what works for me:

I covered my fridge in the self adhesive chalkboard stuff (this: ). I write whatever random notes on it, everything from phone calls to make, bills to pay to grocery lists. Everyday (really, every time I leave the house), I take a picture of it on my phone. That way, I have a single 'hub' for everything. If I'm not at home when I complete something, it send myself a text message with whatever relevant details.

At the end of the day I go through and erase/adjust everything.

It seems to be working for me (better than writing everything down on my arm at least).

Good luck and I'm sorry you lost your job. I hope you make it through this tough time with flying colors (and a new organization system that works for you!)

u/sterling_13 · 3 pointsr/ROTC

Get one of these:

It's a foldable whiteboard that can fit in your pocket, or in your notebook holder. This was one of the best tips I got, and this thing was awesome. Useful for posting the timeline for the next day, sketching out your TMK, or just having a large space to jot some ideas down.

u/ZBeebs · 3 pointsr/mac

Seeing as this has been a problem since they first started making "talkies", you might consider an old school solution.

u/jdayatwork · 3 pointsr/DIY

Y'all must have the moneys. Here is a cork board on Amazon for $9...

Quartet Bulletin Board, Cork Board, 2' x 3', Oak Wood Finish Frame (MWDB2436-ECR)

u/ifnecessary · 3 pointsr/ADHD

Buy a calendar dry erase board and write all your assignments, appointments, due dates, etc. on it. Don't just buy a blank dry erase board, get one meant for calendars.

Buy a pack of multi-colored dry erase markers for each subject. That way when you look at the Calendar in a glance you can tell what is due when and what subject otherwise if it is all in black one tends to tune it all out. Keep the markers in a coffee cup right below the dry erase calendar.

Buy color matching notebooks for each subject.

My system: I have the calendar hanging on the wall right in front of my desk.

Microbiology: Green Notebook + Green Marker

Chem: Blue Notebook + Blue Marker

Ethics: Black Notebook + Black Marker

Calculus: Purple Notebook + Purple Marker

You'll find more and more that on Adderall one quite enjoys doing things like organizing fun little systems like that, and they do work very well.

u/acetv · 3 pointsr/cheatatmathhomework

I'm not having any luck with your graph theory problem, but I can help with your paper problem:

I own three whiteboards this size. I love them.

u/sweetyi · 3 pointsr/productivity

This is a pretty simple strategy that made a big difference for me:

Get a whiteboard calendar. Draw some checkboxes on each day for the month, correlated to tasks you want to turn into habits, and check them off at the end of each day that you've completed them. I started small with a row of 4 checkboxes at the bottom of each day for a month, and have been adding to them as I think of more tasks I want to be doing (I'm up to 12 now I think).

Start out striving to check boxes off. Doesn't matter when you get them done, just fit it into your day somewhere. Just make sure you're doing some of your tasks each day. Eventually, start pushing yourself to strive for PERFECT days where you check every box. You'll still miss things sometimes, but you can visualize your progress and even when you forget to do something or you're too lazy to do it, you can look at your calendar checkmarks and say "Look at all the things I've successfully completed this month!"

You can make your tasks whatever you want. Some of my examples are exercise, reading, guitar practice, cooking a meal for myself, logging calories for the day, etc. Even small successes build up momentum.

u/Deviathan · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

I also have that table and use it for board game days!

I have to use this for XWing:
Since I have no table big enough.

It works shockingly well though, its very sturdy and fairly thick, bumping isn't a problem, and it has room for cards/templates on the side

u/sfrazer · 3 pointsr/boardgames
u/heybingbong · 2 pointsr/boardgames

You should check out Pub Meeples foam core guide as well

u/Rhidelsilpheed · 2 pointsr/costuming

I suggest getting these items Silver Sculpey Get one pack for each bullet splash you want to have.

Then get these. Make sure you have two magnets or each bullet splash.

Then I'd make one claw arm not two as it's a pain to go without two hands. To make the claw I'd grab some foam board.

Get some Super glue or hot glue.

Silver paint that matches the baked shade of the clay.

some blue paint that matches your cop uniform.

Start with the clay, open it and save the wrapper- shape the stuff into dishes with a entry hole or deep point. From the center of each dish make spirals that come out - You could even make the clay into a long snake and coil it around and around to make your dishes. Then make an indent to place one of your magnets flush into the base and make it 10% deeper and wider. Follow the instructions and bake it. Grab super glue and attach one magnet to the dish and the other threw your cop uniform.

The arm is gonna be a bit harder. You want to cut out some shapes from the foam core and then glue it with some superglue or hot glue. I'd start off with cutting two rectangles about as wide as your forearm and about 10 -12 inches longer . the remainder I would cut into long right triangles that are as long as the long piece. This should help make a box to fit your arm in, continue to cut and glue additional pieces to make your hooks. Paint the same color as your putty dishes and you should be done. To help with the details- blend your silver paint into your clothing by matching a blue of the uniform into the splashes and arm the transition into the silver.

u/tearisha · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

maybe this although it might not fit

how about chalkboard contact paper? then you can draw whatever you want and change it whenever

u/onedeeone · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

Dunno; the site says it's made of something laminated. But the reviews for Version 1 and Version 2 on Amazon seem pretty favorable. I might try one out myself.

u/rreighe2 · 2 pointsr/LocationSound

I second what Qualsa said. Don't feed into cameras when you can avoid it. hopefully you can get someone to slate and log the shots down. it'll save your lives and make things SO much easier.

notice how your Zoom writes the file names. I think they are usually STE-000 or MONO-000 depending on how you record it (haven't used 4 channels yet) and then write that on the slate. I also have an h4n so the naming conventions might be a little different. for films i'd recommend it naming by the shot or take over by the date. it'll be easier, trust me.

next: don't worry about lavs. Not yet. you have enough to worry about and lavs and 50 cables are going to tie you down, OR you're going to have a hell of a time trying to figure out what frequencies are usable and not. plus you can even still get interference on frequencies that you thought were empty, but they actually weren't. So, please avoid that for now. You need to set aside non-project time to get that stuff right. Even then, it's different in every county or city.

now, Learn what your mics can and can't do. This is essential. The Zoom has great warmth, so maybe for closeups in the studio, you might get better audio using the zoom's sensitive microphones verses a shotgun or something with a long pole, but I can't know for sure without being there, so that one is up to you.

third, back to the slating, if you've never slated before, here is a good one we are using for a feature we are filming. God it has helped out tons:
Right here

if you want to make things a little easier, you can get some [Gaff tape]9 to write down things that wont change. IE director, production name, etc. that and a sharpie will save a lot of time.

But what's a slate without a log book? We've been fine with just:

Roll | Scene | Shot | Take | Audio File | Good/bad/fair
01 | 1 | 1 | 1 | STE-000 | **
01 | 1 | 1 | 2 | STE-001 |
(train horn)
01 | 1 | 1 | 3 | STE-002 | (distant horn during whispering line)
01 | 1 | N/a | N/A  | STE-003 | ADR - Whispering Line
01 | 1 | 2 | 1 | STE-004 |
(actor fell down)
01 | 1 | 2 | 2 | STE-005 | (might have clipped)
01 | 1 | 2 | 3 | STE-006 | ****
01 | 1 | 2 | 4 | STE-007 |
01 | 1 | 3 | 1 | MONO-000 | Wide

This is how we've been slating:

It's pretty simple and saves a ton of time when editing. If you don't have your own adaptation of logging things, this is a great time to get in the habit. If you think you can handle not logging it, at least make sure to see if you can call out your audio file name and get a loud CLAP once the camera has started rolling and before the director calls action and definitely before yall both cut. that way the editor can know what file to look at.

if you cant get it during the shot, try and ADR. If you can ADR on set in between shots or once yall wrap up, please do. it'll be so much easier to do while everything is fresh on the actors minds. Don't be afraid to get everyone quiet. sometimes you can't get in that sweet spot where you know it sounds the best, but they gotta get the shot. So pull the actors aside and get their audio if you need to. But try try try and get the audio as best that you can so you don't have to do the extra work and can move on to other things.

DEAD CAT'S for the external mics. Find one that fits your setup.

and RED HEADs for the zoom.

Those will save your life.

feel free to correct me. I am just another dude learning his craft. I told you everything to the best of my current knowledge. I'm sure that eventually I'll find better methods than what my crew is currently using someday down the road.

u/selfcurlingpaes · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Great idea for a contest! I just went to my transfernorientation today and flooded my wishlist with the new category of "crap I actually need :/"

I've found a lot of cool stuff. I hope you don't mind me posting more than one- it's not like, to make sure I win the contest, but because I want to share all the nifty things I've found :P

I love the design of this key holder

Robot flash drive! I love robots!

Wood USB Drive!

OMG this pizza cutter!

and this one too!

Mondrian dry erase board!

You need these adorable hedgehog dryer balls

Also, if you aren't aware of dry erase and/or chalkboard adhesive vinyl, you now are. Quick, cheap, non-wall-damaging noteboard. Awesomeness.

u/Mufffin_Lord · 2 pointsr/hamsters

I used a board similar to this, took the cork board out on the frame and put a mesh in there instead, but it wouldn't work with any hamster, because 1. My robo is so tiny she would barely reach it and wouldn't be able to move it and 2. she has never tried to escape and she doesn't like hights

u/TheRubyRedPirate · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Before the Goddamned Marines get all of the credit.

My husband is in the Army. He's actually at basic right now and was hospitalized a couple weeks ago. We're unsure if they will let him continue training or send him home. I'm not sure if I count since I don't know if he will stay in nor not.

This whiteboard would really help me so I can write down due dates for bills, groceries, and things I need to remember.

u/Bakamoichigei · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

I cut down drastically on the noise AND vibrations (the printer was literally wobbling around!) by lining the shelf that it's on in 1/4" (6mm) thick cork tiles that I got off Amazon. A very minimal solution to get one started.

The 8-tile pack was enough for me to cover the shelf my printer's on, AND a 24x36" bench. (The cutting mat I have on the bench doesn't slide around anymore, and the worksurface absorbs impact better!) :D

u/re76 · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I bought a ten pack on Amazon.

This one. Keep an eye out for Amazon warehouse deals. When I bought mine, I got a 10-pack for 27 dollars. It had a small dent in the corner but otherwise was totally fine.

Thanks for the contest!

This PR class is nuts.

The best class I've ever been a part of was learning Arabic. The teacher was from Tunisia and a really cool guy. He encouraged outside learning, gave us fantastic resources outside of class, and was just an amazing teacher.

The students were all involved, tried their hardest, and even on quiz days the mood was upbeat. Plus the subject matter was amazing; we learned culture and language.

Everything that happened in the class was exactly what you would want in a class. It's hard to really explain. It was just perfect.

This would be awesome on my daughter's wall in her new room.

u/Epsilon_balls · 2 pointsr/boardgames

no who you responded to, but this is what I bought when I got mine. It was about 3€ a sheet, and the sheets are about 50cm x 75cm. One sheet about what you need for a 'standard' sized box like Suburbia.

u/pompea · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Have you looked into hanging your makeup on the wall? :)

There's magnetic boards. Just need glue and cheap magnets and you dont need no counter space.

A lot of people decorate theirs with fabrics and frames too, but that's just added cost to the thing, and anyway I'm quite partial to the more raw, industrial look of the magnetic board by itself. But just a suggestion!

Wall mountable spice wracks are also pretty cheap and will hold just about anything.

u/-filly- · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

There is no way you didn't buy a magnetic white board at some point in time.

u/huscarl18 · 1 pointr/Warhammer40k

One of these- Then buy some foam from your local fabric store, some elmers glue, and some foam boards- You cut the foam to make your tray compartments, then glue the boards to the bottom of the foam, and you have some pretty darn sturdy customisable foam trays in a very transportable cart. I used to carry all my Hordes stuff in one(very large army, well, for Hordes). And you can always add boxes onto the top of the rolling cart and strap them on. It's cheap, sturdy, and customisable. Just not very pretty :)

Great contest!

Something that really brightened my day a few months ago was a sweet little text from my mom. Something along the lines of "don't tell your sisters, but you're the smartest daughter I have!" (I don't have any sisters).

It was right in the middle of a stressful misterm session, and it was the perfect amount of goofiness - I don't know how she worked out the perfect timing.

Anyways, here's a little something I have my eye on! Thanks again for the sweet contest!

u/limitless__ · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

For the HVAC system I bought some foam board and made a box around it. Foam board was just held in place with some staples and alunimum tape around the corners. I left space around the unit to access it, change the filter etc. Worked great!

Or just order from Amazon.

u/Jennrrrs · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Keep track of your personal documents. I recommend getting a file box like this. Organize your health documents and social security card, car documents, important financial documents, school stuff, etc.

Also, make a calender for your bills and expenses. Write them down every month, checking them off as you pay. I also like to write down my estimated debt to income ratio so I have an idea of how to budget for the month.

These are two things that helped me keep track of so much.

u/CrusaderX · 1 pointr/boardgames

Honestly amazon had 10 20x30 sheets for 5.00 at one point. Apparently it's a good deal that comes around every once and awhile on there. It's currently 25.00. Here's a link to the item to keep an eye on it.

And if you don't have one already you'll need a hot glue gun and box cutter to cut it. I cut them 3 inches x whatever length I need and then glue them together.

u/IntrospectThyself · 1 pointr/Gifted

Some examples of flowcharts I have would be the interconnected factors which make up my vocational challenges. Another is the pattern I noticed I go through regarding my social needs (I titled it "the gifted shame-coping loop" and another, most recent, "the gifted mirroring-discernment loop"). Another flowchart I have is a map of my values and how they relate to each other. Sometimes I get discouraged because I can't quite make a visual of the pattern I recognize but want to. I mostly started making these flowcharts because it was much more efficient in communicating my challenges to new therapists or people who care to understand me.

I am wondering if glass boards are any good? Like this one, for example:

u/BSA_DEMAX51 · 1 pointr/boardgames

I (the OP) always just use Elmer’s White Glue-All and it works perfectly. It sticks well to both the foam edges and the paper tops of the foam board, it’s super easy to wipe off if you use too much, and if you get it on yourself you can just rub it right off with friction. It’s cheap, effective, and you can find it virtually anywhere.

Also, make sure you use good foam board (again, I prefer Elmer’s 5mm) and you shouldn’t have much issue with warping.

I got a roll of this chalkboard contact paper and stuck it to a 2x4 foot plywood sheet I got at Home Depot for $5. Hung it up with a bunch of Command strips.

It works... ok. The biggest problems are that the board is pretty flexible and the strips hold it a few mm from the wall, so it can flex a bit when I'm writing on it; and the paper wasn't wide enough to cover the board with one strip, so I had to cut several, and there's a bit of a ridge where they overlap.

You can use this board as bases or even building material, it works really well! I've just got at a stopping point of my first scenery pieces:
Super easy, just the board, PVA glue and some pins to hold it in place while it dries. Is about 90% complete, just some touch ups left. But you get the idea. The possibilities are endless, sometimes you just need to see someone doing and go from there!
The wedges he uses in the video, for the base of the tank, are here. I've picked mine up at walgreens for a couple of dollars. They look a little nicer than the styrofoam, since it's all bubbly. So maybe look for some things that still work, but give you the ability to work with better! Still, I am super happy that you actually ended up building that!

Just found some of these .25" thick 12"x12" squares at Michaels Craft Store and cut them down to size with a sharp knife. Then to raise the bed the amount that I needed I just folded up some painters tape and taped that to the bottom middle of the cork. I can possibly take a picture later. You can shim the underside of that cork with whatever you want since it insulates so well.

I think post-its would be better but here's a wrist-mount dry erase board

I'm not disabled, I only have anxiety and ADHD and so on, but if you have a smartphone you always carry with you can try using apps like HabitRPG ("Unlike most task management programs, Habitica takes the form of a role-playing game") and as far as I remember you can have party members there.
If you don't have a smartphone but can easily write or at least print out pages and stamp checkboxes, try out always carrying a small notebook journal with you in a pocket or carry pouch. A so called bullet journal where you or your dom have also made trackers for you, and you always looking in your journal to see if you're on track with your current task!
Especially if you've read about the Getting Things Done system you can implement as many parts of it as you want with your bullet journal, such as breaking down all your tasks into action steps only and making nestled ticky boxes so that you always know what you're supposed to do next when you lose track.
Otherwise a clipboard with a printed out todo list and attached sticker page might help, or index cards held together by a binder clip or rubber band or fancy case (e.g. "Hipster PDA"). Or put some sort of note board on a wrist strap and attach a pen to it, here's for instance a blackboard version:

Relevant links: One of the many how to Bullet Journal videos. (You can make your bullet journal as bare bones or as decorative and festive as you like!) (system using loose bunch of prepared index cards instead of journal pages)

This is what I use. Fantastic value for square area. Even if the edges are a little scuffed, it's easy to trim it off and still have enormous usable area for the price.

I bought one of these: The Notebook Ltd. Noteboard Pocket-Size Dry Erase-Board.

It's great for mapping areas, brainstorming, and other things non gaming uses, too. I'll probably buy one more for gaming, to have two.

Could be true, but the Amazon ratings are solid enough for me to give it a shot at just $13.50 a pop.

Here they are:

I bought this probably from reading someones similar tip (maybe yours?)

u/TIG23 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Well naturally you'd need [a tutu] (, and matching [knee high socks] (

But after that, I'd go with [a tape dispenser] (, [post-its] (, [hole punch] (, [paper clips] (, [stapler] (, and absolutely 1000000000% [this calculator] (

Because pink is the new black . That's why. :b

u/telepathetic_monkey · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Stapler and staples.

3 Hole puncher

Powerstrip, this is a more subtle item, but once he sees it, he'll realize you went all out.

Pink is the new black.

Thanks for the contest! Will you post before and after pictures??

Hello! Yay educator contests!

  1. Bitchin' pink swingline holepunch I require my kids to keep English binders so they can organize handouts and assignments. It also helps them create a portfolio of their work! Of course, there are always moments where I'm running copies and realize afterward that I've forgotten to hole-punch them. Stinks!

  2. I teach 7th and 8th grade English. Middle schoolers, woohoo!

  3. There is nothing better than the feeling I get when I watch a student "get it" with a new skill we're learning. You can watch their whole face light up and then they want to run around and help other students understand as well. This brings me all the warm-and-fuzzies.

  4. This is me including the point that "students are the future."

What kind of bases do you want to make? I use cork board, small ballast, and the GW effects paints to do my bases generally. This guy for example, I used this cork board ripped into little pieces for the big rock he's standing on, this for the little rocks, then I painted it black and drybrushed it with greys, and then used this for the snow. Very simple, took very little time, but looks pretty good. You can also buy grass flock, or use different colors, but I wanted a snowy, bleak, rocky look.

That makes a lot more sense! The last person that posted these linked to Amazon and it was the same product for $16.95. Maybe it was a ten pack or something? I'll definitely go this route if they're that affordable, they look great.

EDIT: Looks like it's a 2 pack, are these the same ones you got at Walmart?

I just bought it at a craft store, Michaels here in the US. it's a fairly dense piece of foam sandwiched by some heavy paper (cardboard?)

The brand I bought is elmers.
