Works-For-Me Wednesday

I don't know about ya'll but it's not uncommon for me to be in conversation with someone and find myself saying something to the effect of "I was just thinking about that in the shower this morning..." What is it with that darn shower?
I decided that too many times I forget what I'd thought of and then of course remember when it's too late.
My solution: SHOWER CRAYONS! (Crayola calls them 'Bathtub Crayons' but c'mon, how many kids need to be making a to-do list in the tub... why don't we all just admit that these things were made especially for us forgetful adults...)
Yep, perfect. Don't think I'm kidding, I love these things. I'll write my to-do list then copy it down before I leave for work. It's great! Most times I remember things simply because I wrote it down in the shower and don't need my paper list, but it's still a nice back-up!
The red crayon can be hard to clean off, but as long as you be sure to wipe it off in about a day, you're good! Just don't leave it on too long or it can be tough to clean off.
See, and you thought these were just for kids...

OMG...it's so true! I come up with blog ideas while I shower and then *poof* they are gone when I try and remember them! lol Good idea!

Amy said...

I've never seen these things but they sound fun! I can just see my husband scratching his head when he hops in the shower and finds a list of my blog ideas... LOL!

My WFMW tip about my new way to carry my coupons is up HERE if you'd like to take a peek.

Have a great day! :)

Great idea! Hey, let's put a little soap in them and we can clean the shower at the same time.

good idea unless you forget to go back and write them down b/c you are trying to tame the wild animals in your house...I obviously have this problem

What a cool and practical thought. Do you know if they work okay on tile?

It sounds like I'm up there with everyone else......I think great naked!!! Thanks for commenting on my blog about the non-profit. I'm may be asking you questions along the way. Did you use a Community Foundation to get started?

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

Hey, maybe this would work for leaving the kids notes in the shower! WASH YOUR HAIR REAL GOOD! They would be shocked!

O'Brien said...

Community Foundation is a org that gives smaller estates and donor (like in the 500,000 to 1 million range) a place to manage their funds and help non-profits without having their own foundation. Like a investment broker for non-profit funds.

I'm with you all! Shower time is really the ONLY time I am alone to put two thoughts together. These crayons sound great.

I've used wipe off markers to leave notes on my my boys' mirror. I write things like "Don't forget your back teeth!" or, "Is your towel hung up??"

"Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine, and injustice in the world when He could do something about it, but I'm afraid God would ask me the same question."
