Improvised magnetic clipboard for multiple temporary to-do lists
Today, we're in the home stretch of Passover preparations. I'm almost ready to "turn over" the kitchen. Passover is a huge project, with many sub-projects in an ever-distracting environment (home!)
To "empty my head", I use an old cookie sheet (painted white so it looks better and doesn't flake rust on me), some magnets, and a host of blank index cards.
If I tried to enter the many tiny buzzing tasks into any real "system", I would fall into a bottomless procrastination pit. This magnetic clipboard lets me roam about the house and sort the tasks that come to mind into categories, without shuffling cards.
Bonus: cookie sheets tend to come with a convenient hanging hole.
